San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver Deebo Samuel has emerged in his rookie season as a physical receiver who will go up over anybody to make a play. In Week 11, he made his best catch and the season, and one of the highlights of the NFL season.

Samuel was also shaken up on the play and left the field to be looked at by the trainers as the crowd chanted his name. The team announced he is questionable to return and he is getting checked out in the locker room.

He currently leads the team with 82 yards on four receptions, having stepped up with Emmanuel Sanders banged up with a nagging rib injury. Sanders has three receptions for 33 yards, and fullback Kyle Juszczyk leads the team with seven receptions for 63 yards.
