49ers' wide receiver Deebo Samuel was named an AP 1st Team All-Pro for the first time in his young career on Friday. He is the first 49ers wide receiver to earn that honor since Terrell Owens earned his third nod back in 2002.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan didn't offer any hints before Wednesday's practice. The safer bet is that rookie Trey Lance will get his third career start. Sunday is the most important game of the season for San Francisco, though. If the 49ers win, they are in the playoffs. If they lose, then it would take the Atlanta Falcons beating the New Orleans Saints to get in. Jimmy Garoppolo missed Week 17 due to a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. He threw some footballs on Tuesday to evaluate where he is in his recovery. "Yesterday, it felt good," Garoppolo said on Wednesday. "Woke up this morning after throwing, didn't feel
