Deebo Samuel played versus the Arizona Cardinals in Week 18 of the San Francisco 49ers after sitting out the previous three games due to injury. Samuel returned to action gradually with just three combined touches in a convincing victory.
Samuel completed the regular season with 864 scrimmage yards and five scores in 13 outings. After shedding the chaff in Week 18, Samuel should be prepared for his typical workload for the next postseason game against the Seattle Seahawks.
In the regular season’s final game, a 38-13 victory against the Cardinals, the dual-threat phenom received two of three passes for 20 yards while rushing once for 4 yards.
After defeating the Arizona Cardinals, the San Francisco 49ers are now entering the playoffs on a 10-game hot run. They are thriving at the ideal time of the year.
The 49ers will open the playoffs as hosts against NFC West foes the Seahawks on Saturday, and if they prevail, they’ll get to remain at home for at least one more week.
What happened to Deebo Samuel?
In Week 14, when Deebo Samuel was carried off the pitch, there was undoubtedly concern about a serious injury and a lengthy layoff.
However, after Deebo Samuel was diagnosed with a high ankle injury, optimism grew that he would be able to return before the end of the regular season. Samuel stated unequivocally that the condition of his recovery is that he be in perfect health.
“I believed I was done.” It was a somewhat frightful sight since, in my 15 years of playing, I had never been in a position like that. It was insane just to know that I survived.”
Deebo Samuel has recorded more than 43.5 receiving yards this season in six of the 17 appearances. In 13 games this season, Samuel has two TD receptions, one on each of two occasions. He will face a Seattle team that ranks 30th in the league for rush defense and surrenders 150.2 rushing yards per game.
In the NFL wild-card round, it is widely anticipated that the San Francisco 49ers will easily defeat the Seattle Seahawks. With two victories against their NFC West foe, San Francisco holds the advantage in terms of team strength.
