Sidelined since Week 7 with hamstring injury
Kyle Shanahan on KNBR said Deebo Samuel (hamstring) was a longshot for the upcoming game in New Orleans. It’s looking as if Week 12 is more realistic for him. (The Athletic – Matt Barrows)
Nerdy Football Analysis: The 49ers have an open week after facing the Saints, so it doesn’t make much sense to rush Samuel back. Brandon Aiyuk should be good to go in Week 10 and figures to be the focal point of the passing attack. Hopefully, the extra time allows Samuel to come back healthy and stay that way for a San Francisco offense that needs some good news during a season that has seen injury wipe out most of its offensive stars.
