WR Deebo Samuel to play vs. Lions, not listed on injury report for NFC Championship

The 49ers on Friday released their final injury report for the NFC championship game. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel is officially not listed with any designation. Kyle Shanahan revealed to reporters on Friday after practice that Samuel will play against the Lions.

Via @49ers on Twitter:

Samuel hurt his shoulder early in the 49ers’ divisional round matchup against the Packers. He didn’t participate in Wednesday’s practice, and was limited Thursday. Yet, on Friday, Samuel logged a full practice with no restrictions.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan on Wednesday indicated Samuel was feeling better. The receiver avoided the shoulder fracture that forced him to miss three games in the middle of the season.

Prior to his shoulder injury against the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round, Samuel caught a pair of passes for 24 yards on the opening drive of the game. During the 2023 campaign, Samuel has hauled in 60 receptions for 892 yards and seven touchdowns in 15 games.
