Deebo Samuel removed from final injury report ahead of Week 14 vs. Bucs

We break down the news that Deebo Samuel is still dealing with a quad injury. What it means for Week 14 and beyond.

Friday update: The 49ers removed Deebo Samuel from their final injury report, which means he has no injury designation and is good to go for Week 14 vs. the Bucs.

Thursday update: Deebo was limited in practice for a second straight day. Even if he is limited again on Friday, he remains on track to play on Sunday.

The San Francisco 49ers returned to practice on Wednesday and wide receiver Deebo Samuel was limited in the session. He has been dealing with a quadricep injury that limited him in practice last week. He was limited last Wednesday, downgraded to DNP on Thursday, and upgraded back to limited on Friday. He was designated as questionable on the final injury report but played on Sunday.

Fantasy football implications for Week 14

Samuel was a game-day decision, but Sunday morning Adam Schefter and Ian Rapoport were reporting he would be playing barring a pre-game setback. He started and finished the game with six receptions for 58 yards, as well as four carries for five rushing yards.

For the time being, there is no reason to think Samuel won’t play this week. The 49ers have a late game on Sunday, but even if he ends up questionable on the final injury report, we can likely expect him to play. If he were unable to go, Jauan Jennings would join Brandon Aiyuk in the starting lineup and potentially see some more work.
