49ers' Deebo Samuel: Looking at Week 4 return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are aiming for Samuel (foot) to make his season debut Week 4 against the Eagles, Keiana Martin of the 49ers' official site reports.

Shanahan explained the decision to place Samuel on injured reserve Saturday, telling Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com that the wide receiver had some lingering soreness in his left foot that developed into a "little bit of a setback." Consequently, Samuel has a few weeks to complete his rehab from June surgery on a Jones fracture in his left foot, with the hope he'll be available Oct. 4 versus Philly. In the meantime, the 49ers will rely on Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor and Dante Pettis in a receiving corps that also has question marks surrounding Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) and Richie James (hamstring).

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The decision means Samuel will not play for at least the first three weeks of the season. It's a bit surprising considering coach Kyle Shanahan was hopeful the second-year wideout would be able to practice this week. Whether Samuel suffered some sort of setback or the 49ers are just being cautious remains to be seen, but the move likely benefits the short-term fantasy values of Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor and Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring) in the meantime.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Ruled out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Coach Kyle Shanahan was optimistic about Samuel returning from mid-June foot surgery for Week 1, but the wideout never even made it to the practice field this week, instead remaining focused on his rehab. With no report of a setback, it's possible Samuel could return as soon as Week 2 or 3. In the meantime, the 49ers will rely on some combination of Kendrick Bourne, Trent Taylor, Dante Pettis and Richie James, plus rookie first-round pick Brandon Aiyuk (hamstring, questionable) if he's available. Bourne, Taylor, Pettis and Aiyuk are the favorites to see Week 1 snaps and targets.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Doesn't practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) was held out of practice Thursday, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

This marks the second day in a row in which Samuel didn't get on the field, hurting his chances of being available Sunday against the Cardinals. Friday's injury report could reveal the 49ers' decision regarding the wide receiver for Week 1, but ultimately they don't need to make the final call until 90 minutes before Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff. An absence from Samuel would elevate Kendrick Bourne and Trent Taylor to bigger roles to start the season.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: No practice reps Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) didn't practice Wednesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Prior to drills, coach Kyle Shanahan gave Samuel a "small chance" to practice, but ultimately, the second-year wide receiver didn't fit in any reps. Samuel is in the final stages of his recovery from a Jones fracture in his left foot. That said, he likely has to prove he can operate somewhat close to normal to get the all-clear from the 49ers' medical staff. Samuel has two more chances to take the practice field before San Francisco opens its season Sunday against the Cardinals.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Not expected to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Samuel (foot) has "a small chance" to practice Wednesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Wednesday's first official injury report of the season will ultimately reveal the extent of Samuel's activity, but Shanahan's comments suggest the wideout is trending toward either limited participation or none at all. Ideally, Samuel would put in a full practice by week's end for fantasy managers to feel good about his chances of suiting up in Sunday's season opener versus the Cardinals.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Week 1 still in play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) did not participate in Monday's practice, but a decision regarding his status for Week 1 could be made in the coming days, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

We got some positive news regarding Samuel when the team lifted him from the NFI list this past weekend, and it sounds like Week 1 remains in play. Team officials have flip-flopped on the sophomore's status following offseason foot surgery in June, but they will bring in foot specialist Dr. Robert Anderson to be a part of the decision-making process Tuesday, which should help provide a clearer picture of the wideout's availability.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Lifted from NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers activated Samuel (foot) from the active/non-football injury list Saturday.

With the move official, Samuel can continue his quest to play Week 1 following more than two months spent in recovery mode due to a Jones fracture in his left foot. Along the way, he was spotted running sprints on the side during an Aug. 26 session and may return to the practice field in the lead-up to the season opener Sept. 13 versus the Cardinals.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: May be available Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) may be activated from the active/non-football injury list prior to a Week 1 matchup with the Cardinals, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

While taking part in joint workouts with his teammates in Nashville back in June, Samuel suffered what eventually was deemed to be a Jones fracture in his left foot. He underwent surgery and was expected to require 10-to-12 weeks to recover fully, putting his availability for the season opener in jeopardy. Having said that, Samuel was seen sprinting on a side field in late August, and there's potential for the second-year wide receiver to practice during Week 1 prep. As a result, his status should be watched closely over the next week.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Could practice next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he's hopeful Samuel (foot) will be back at practice next week, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network reports.

Samuel is pushing to get on the field for the 49ers' Sept. 13 season opener against Arizona, and a return to practice next week would represent an important step in the right direction. The versatile wideout suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot back in June and was projected to miss 10-to-12 weeks. Even if Samuel receives medical clearance in time to suit up Week 1, the possibility that he could be on a restricted snap count can't be ignored.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Seen sprinting at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) was spotted sprinting hard on a side field at Wednesday's practice, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Per Barrows, the wideout had "his most intense workout thus far with change-of-direction exercises." The report also notes that Samuel is pushing to be ready for the 49ers' Sept. 13 season opener against the Cardinals, and the wideout's activity Wednesday offers some concrete evidence that he could meet his goal.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Hope for Week 1 appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Kyle Shanahan hopes Samuel (foot) will be available for a Week 1 matchup with the Cardinals, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.

Due to the Jones fracture suffered in his left foot during offseason training back in June, Samuel's status for the season opener was precarious following a prognosis of 10-to-12 weeks to recover. Shanahan has wavered in his belief that Samuel will suit up in the aforementioned contest, telling Matt Barrows of The Athletic this past Saturday that he's "not counting on it." Even if Samuel gets the all-clear to play Week 1, there's no guarantee he'll fill his usual role or take on a full allotment of snaps.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Not expected Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) is not expected to be available Week 1 according to coach Kyle Shanahan, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

This should surprise only the most optimistic of 49ers fans, as Samuel's surgery and ensuing 10-to-12 week recovery timeline already put him precariously close to the start of the regular season, without factoring in practice time to regain some conditioning and get reps within the offense. Both Shanahan and general manager John Lynch left open just a sliver of hope in their comments with the media about an opening-season debut, but based on other NFL players who have suffered the injury recently, a cautious approach has seemingly stymied the possible risk of aggravating the issue down the road.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Moved to NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers placed Samuel (foot) on the active/non-football injury list Tuesday, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

The move comes as no surprise due to the Jones fracture suffered by Samuel, which necessitated surgery June 18. At that time, he was believed to be facing a recovery of 10-to-12 weeks, but GM John Lynch mentioned Tuesday that Samuel may miss regular-season action. "Not going to put an exact timeline on it," Lynch told Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News. "But it's fair to say [Samuel] may miss some games at the start of the year." As a result, Samuel's standing as Week 1 approaches will be of keen interest for the 49ers' balanced offense. Any absence from Samuel will thrust Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne into larger roles.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Could miss multiple games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

49ers general manager John Lynch acknowledged Tuesday that Samuel (foot) could miss multiple games, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. "Not going to put an exact timeline on it," Lynch said. "But it's fair to say [Samuel] may miss some games at the start of the year."

Samuel had surgery June 18 to address a Jones fracture, with early reports putting his recovery/rehab timeline at anywhere from eight to 16 weeks. Matt Barrows of the Athletic has mentioned a narrower window of 10-to-12 weeks, which still would put Samuel's Week 1 availability in serious question. With the second-year pro in danger of missing games, the Niners may need significant September contributions from Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne, among others.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Looking at 10-12 week timeline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel (foot) suffered a "classic Jones fracture," which should put his recovery/rehab timeline around 10-to-12 weeks, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Initial reports suggested anything between eight and 16 weeks would be a reasonable expectation. This post-surgery update hints at a narrower window, though it's not something we can project with a high degree of confidence. Given the risk of future complications, the Niners could decide to hold Samuel out of games even if he technically gets medical clearance for Week 1. The 24-year-old wideout had surgery June 18, so he's already two weeks into the timeline estimate.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Foot surgery successful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel underwent a procedure Thursday to address the Jones fracture in his left foot, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.

Samuel sustained the injury earlier this week while training with teammates. The 24-year-old has now already undergone the required surgery, which reportedly "went perfect." Reports on the sophomore's recovery timetable have been scattered, with Ian Rapoport of NFL Network suggesting a "return within 12-16 weeks," Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reporting that Samuel could be ready to kick off the regular season, and Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area indicating that the dynamic wideout should retake the field in just 10 weeks. In any case, already having undergone a successful procedure will allow Samuel to begin his rehab process as early as possible.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Suffers Jones fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The 49ers revealed Thursday that Samuel suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot while training with teammates earlier this week, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.

Per the report, Samuel's injury -- which will require surgical repair -- entails "a break between the base and the middle part of the fifth metatarsal of the foot." While Ian Rapoport of NFL Network previously suggested that Samuel "should return within 12-16 weeks," a timetable that would presumably result in missed regular-season action for the wideout, ESPN's Adam Schefter offers the more optimistic take that Samuel is expected to be available for Week 1 action. Supporting that notion is that Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area relays that Samuel believes he'll be back in 10 weeks.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Suffers broken foot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel suffered a broken foot Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Samuel picked up the injury during a throwing session in Nashville. According to Rapoport, Samuel underwent surgery with noted Dr. Robert Anderson and is expected to be healthy in 12-16 weeks. With such a timetable, he won't be available Week 1, but a midseason appearance seems likely.

49ers' Deebo Samuel: Breaks records in Super Bowl LIV
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Samuel hauled in five of nine targets for 39 yards and carried the ball three times for 53 yards during Sunday's 31-20 Super Bowl loss to the Chiefs.

Not only did Samuel set a new record for rushing yards by a wide receiver in Super Bowl history, but his 32-yard scamper during the 49ers' opening drive was also the single longest run by a wideout on the big stage. The versatile rookie's strong Super Bowl performance is a small consolation for the 49ers following the loss, but combined with his impressive regular season (961 combined yards and six touchdowns over a full 16-game stretch), there's plenty of reason to be optimistic about the dynamic receiver's future fantasy prospects. With Emmanuel Sanders set to become an unrestricted free agent in March, there's a realistic path for Samuel to emerge as San Francisco's No. 1 receiver as early as 2020.
