San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was a key part of the team's dominant 38-10 win over the Arizona Cardinals on Monday. However, Samuel popped up on the injury report following that game with a hamstring injury and has been limited in practice ahead of Week 12.

Now some new details have emerged on the star's ailment.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Friday that Samuel's injury is "something different" than his previous hamstring issue. Shanahan noted the 2021 All-Pro started to feel some soreness following the game against Arizona.

"We got back at like seven in the morning, I’m sure he went home and slept for a while. It was a little weird day. He didn’t feel it much on Tuesday. Got the information on Wednesday and then we were safe about it.”

This is an important update on Samuel's injury. He was forced to miss Week 8 with a hamstring problem, but this issue isn't the same thing. That could be good news, considering it wasn't serious enough to hold him entirely out of practice.

Samuel has ultimately been given the questionable tag ahead of San Francisco's matchup against the New Orleans Saints. It sounds like the Niners were cautious with the dual threat in practice in order to preserve him for the game, but it remains to be seen if he does suit up.

The 49ers are currently projected as 8.5-point favorites over New Orleans, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
