San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has mostly gone back to work in the past few weeks and he’s got another monster game up against Minnesota Vikings, dashing six times in 66 yards and two touchdowns. However, he was discharged early with a groin injury, an injury that required an MRI to determine the severity of the problem.
The MRI results bring good news, as 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters Monday that Samuel will be out of action for just one to two weeks because of a groin strain, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Samuel was walking around after the injury and told reporters after the 34-26 win that he was “not overly concerned” about the matter, by David Lombardi of The Athletic.
The former South Carolina second-round player is having a competitive year in his career, when he hit the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career after 11 games and five touchdowns. With some injuries the 49ers have on their return run, Samuel has been playing in the backcourt a bit lately, and has raced 19 times for 181 yards and four touchdowns in the past three games.
Team 6-5 49 shows that they are on a three-match winning streak, and take on their opponents Seahawks in Seattle next week. If Samuel misses two games due to injury, he will miss San Francisco’s meeting with Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14.
