The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their NFC Championship Game contest against the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

In this week's injury report, the spotlight is on wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who suffered a shoulder injury during this past weekend's playoff victory over the Green Bay Packers.

While Samuel did not participate in practice, observers noted his presence on a side field, donning his jersey and engaging in some work with trainers as the Wednesday session kicked off.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic noted, "That's a positive sign for the rest of the week."

Omar Ruiz of NFL Network added, "He did some running, the full length of the practice field and back. Carried a ball with him at times. In our small window of observation, any discomfort wasn't apparent."

"He's feeling better," head coach Kyle Shanahan said of Samuel. "... Just his shoulder hurts. That's all. Just hurts."

When asked if he expects Samuel to play against the Lions, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk stated, "I do, personally, but just continue to pray for him, that he can get better throughout the week and be out there with us to finish the job."

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Lions, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

Albert Breer: A team could still pry Deebo Samuel from the 49ers

By David Bonilla

Never say never. It appears the San Francisco 49ers will enter the 2024 season with both Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel on the roster, assuming contract negotiations with Aiyuk proceed smoothly. Neither wide receiver was traded before or during the draft, making it unlikely either will be dealt before the season. However, in the unpredictable world of the NFL, nothing is certain. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated believes there's still a scenario where a team could pry Samuel from San Francisco's grip. Breer argues that the 49ers have been dealing with a bottleneck of contracts, having handed out large deals to tight end George Kittle, linebacker Fred Warner, wide receiver Deebo Samuel, and defensive end Nick Bosa. This year, they signed Christian McCaffrey to a

Go back to the weeks leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft and you'll find rumors swirling about the possibility that the San Francisco 49ers could be trading one of their star wide receivers, Brandon Aiyulk or Deebo Samuel. Many believed that if a trade was made, it would happen before or during the draft. But the draft came and went, and neither player was moved. But here we are in June, and the rumors haven't died down—much. Aiyuk, after skipping OTAs (Organized Team Activities) and the mandatory minicamp due to a contract dispute, is reportedly "pessimistic" that a deal will get done. And of course, there are still rumblings from Pittsburgh Steelers reporter, Ray
