Deebo Samuel returns to 49ers practice

Earlier this week, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that receiver Deebo Samuel could be back at practice this week.

Now that’s come to pass.

According to multiple reporters on the scene, Samuel was practicing on Thursday for the first time since suffering knee and ankle injuries against the Buccaneers in Week 14.

Just because Samuel’s on the field does not mean he would play in Sunday’s game against the Raiders. With San Francisco having clinched the NFC West, there’s no need to rush him back. But the fact that he’s practicing now is a good sign for his potential availability for the first week of the postseason, no matter who the 49ers play.

Multiple reports also indicated that Nick Bosa and Mitch Wishnowsky were both back at practice after missing Wednesday’s session due to illness.

  1. If I were the NFL, I’d be worried about this team. I loathe them, but with that defense and a competent QB running that offense, these guys can do some real damage.

  2. I’m taking the 49ers as my NFC Champion. I truly believe they can roll in Philly and Minnesota to get the win.

  3. The 49ers would be smart to use him as little as possible over the next two games and to have him rested to wipe that smile off the face of that Philthy team. I so am looking forward to Jayleen Hurts hanging his head low as his team is stuffed at home.
