Deebo Samuel, WR (SF)

Suffers flat tire in playoff win

Samuel will need to undergo further tests after suffering an ankle injury in the closing moments of Saturday's playoff win over the Packers, ESPN's Nick Wagoner reports.

Samuel amassed 44 yards on three receptions (four targets) and 39 rushing yards on 10 attempts in the 13-10 win over Green Bay. Samuel suffered the apparent ankle injury on his last rush attempt to get kicker Robbie Gould a few yards closer to nailing the game-winning field goal. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was optimistic after the game, citing Deebo's ability to celebrate and jump around with his teammates in elation after the upset victory. We will wait for the official medical report leading up to next week's practices to find out Samuel's availability for the NFC Championship Game against the winner of Sunday's Rams-Buccaneers matchup.
