The top offensive threat for the San Francisco 49ers has been ruled out of practice.
The San Francisco 49ers began their preparation for the 7-1 Arizona Cardinals on Wednesday, November 3rd, without a key piece of their offense.
Deebo Samuel is the NFC Offensive Player of the Week.
According to the team’s website, the wide receiver, who had six catches for 171 yards against the Chicago Bears, was not running through the customary exercises and was held out of practice due to a calf issue he worsened in the 33-22 road win.
According to Matt Maiocco of KNBR 680 AM, Samuel was one of four 49er starters who did not participate in Wednesday’s practice.

Will Samuel continue to play?
Fans of the 49ers, as well as those who have Samuel on their fantasy teams, will be relieved to learn that he will not miss the crucial NFC West matchup against the Cardinals.
On Wednesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with the Bay Area reporters about Samuel’s status for Sunday’s game.
Shanahan replied, “No, he couldn’t go today.” “Hopefully he’ll be able to go tomorrow,” says the narrator.
Shanahan is confident Samuel will be fully healthy for the Week 8 matchup.
“I’d be surprised if he can’t go by Sunday,” Shanahan said, adding that the calf “had been bothering him the week before, and he played a lot and through a lot, and it felt worse after.”
Through seven games this season, Samuel has established himself as one of the league’s most explosive deep threats and field stretchers.
He leads the league in most games of 150 yards or more, according to Pro Football Focus.
Deebo Samuel has three games this season with 150+ receiving yards.
