Niners WR Deebo Samuel fulfilled the Deebo Samuel role in Sunday's opening loss to the Bears. He drew a team-high 8 targets but caught just 2 for 14 yards in rain-drenched conditions. Samuel added 52 yards and a TD on 8 carries, trailing only QB Trey Lance among 49ers in rushing yards. We certainly can't count on rushing scores every week for Samuel, but the target count to go with the rushing work is encouraging. That's what lacked in the 2nd half of last year, when he was getting more handoffs than passing looks. Brandon Aiyuk drew just 2 target against the Bears, catching both for 40 yards. WR Jauan Jennings posted team highs of 4 receptions and 62 yards on 6 targets.
ESPN's Jeremy Fowler hears that 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (quad) is "likely a game-time decision" for Sunday's showdown with the Dolphins. Samuel got in just limited practices on Wednesday and Friday with what HC Kyle Shanahan said is a deep thigh bruise. This game doesn't kick off until 4:05 pm ET tomorrow, which could put fantasy owners in a tough spot. We'll look for an update on Samuel on Sunday morning.
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said after Friday's practice that WR Deebo Samuel is dealing with a deep thigh bruise. The team expected Samuel to be in better shape by now, but he wasn't able to do much in Friday's practice, Shanahan said. Samuel seems truly iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Dolphins -- and it's safe to assume that he won't be at 100% if he does suit up.
49ers WR Deebo Samuel (quad) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game vs. the Dolphins. He got in limited practices on Wednesday and Friday, sitting out on Thursday. This game doesn’t kick off until 4:05 pm ET on Sunday, but we’ll look for an update on Samuel that morning.
49ers WR Deebo Samuel (quad) did not practice on Thursday, after being limited on Wednesday. It's unclear if this was a planned day off or if Samuel suffered a new injury on Wednesday. We'll hopefully have a better idea of Samuel's status for this weekend's game vs. the Dolphins by Friday night.
