Head coach Kyle Shanahan shared good news after Friday's practice. Deebo Samuel is full-go for Sunday's game. The wide receiver has practiced two consecutive days after sitting out Wednesday's session, and there was growing confidence inside the building that he would be healthy enough to play against the Lions.

"It's kind of out of sight, out of mind right now," Shanahan said, noting that the pain in Samuel's shoulder has subsided throughout the week.

Speaking to reporters after Friday's practice, Samuel was asked if he might need to protect his shoulder on Sunday. He responded, "I ain't protecting nothing."

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

Are the 49ers preparing for life after Brandon Aiyuk or Deebo Samuel? Louis Riddick believes so

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

49ers' Brock Purdy: Full offseason has been beneficial

By David Bonilla
Jun 10

Brock Purdy's last full offseason came as a rookie in 2022. However, calling it a "full offseason" is misleading. He was buried on the San Francisco 49ers' depth chart, limiting his practice reps. Despite this, Purdy showed enough promise to earn a spot on the 53-man roster. Just months later, he took over the starting quarterback job and hasn't relinquished it since. Last offseason was crucial for Purdy's development. Unfortunately, he was recovering from surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow. Purdy didn't get to throw to teammates until training camp, leaving some uncertainty about his effectiveness following such a significant injury. Purdy finished last season with a single-season franchise-record 4,280 passing yards,
