The San Francisco 49ers got off to a rocky start against the Green Bay Packers Saturday, made worse by losing Deebo Samuel.

The 49ers’ star wide receiver suffered a shoulder injury in the first half of the NFC Divisional Round. Samuel got hurt on the opening drive for the 49ers, taking a tough tackle after catching a pass over the middle. The WR was seen on the ground for a short time, being looked at by the training staff.

He was then taken back to the medical tent, being evaluated for a concussion. Samuel returned to the game on the next series.

Later in the seocnd quarter, Samuel came off the field and ran to the locker room with a 49ers staffer. It was then revealed he had a shoulder injury, listed as questionable to return. He was not seen for the rest of the half, eventually going back to the locker room before halftime.

After the intermission, Samuel was seen without pads and in sweats, suggesting his night was over. It was made official shortly thereafter.

Deebo Samuel, 28, has been a focal point of the 49ers offense since being drafted in 2019. He has accumulated over 5,000 total yards in five seasons, including 1000 yards on the ground. He also has 38 total touchdowns to his name.
