49ers' Deebo Samuel Out for Season With Hamstring Injury
Deebo Samuel's injury-riddled season is over.
Niners coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed Monday that Samuel suffered a hamstring injury and he'll come back if the 49ers "make the playoffs," which effectively ends his season.

Coming off a stellar rookie year, Samuel's sophomore season was sadly marred by injuries. Deebo fractured his foot in offseason workouts then dealt with hamstring and foot injuries throughout the rest of the campaign.
Samuel has struggled with injuries throughout his career, including in college.
He finishes his second year with 33 receptions for 391 yards and a touchdown catch. He also added 26 yards on the ground.
In lone good news for the franchise, George Kittle is expected to practice this week and he could return in Week 16.
