49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan says Deebo Samuel “looks real good” running routes, and is optimistic he’ll be activated from IR next week, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. He stopped short of saying Samuel will play vs. Eagles. That will be decided late next week.
Great news for the 49ers and those rostering Samuel. The goal has been for Samuel to be activated after three weeks, and that timetable clearly has not changed. Despite the carnage that is the San Fran injury report, next week could bring the return of Samuel, Jimmy Garoppolo, and George Kittle to the offense.
