The 49ers held their first practice of their short week in advance of the Week 14 matchup with one of their key players landing on the injury report. Deebo Samuel Jersey did not practice during Wednesday’s session as Kyle Shanahan revealed the wideout suffered a foot contusion.
Samuel’s injury has no correlation to the stress fracture the second-year receiver suffered over the summer. According to the head coach, Samuel was experiencing soreness after taking a knee to his foot during Monday night’s contest against the Buffalo Bills, which held him out of the team’s session. Shanahan doesn’t believe Samuel’s foot injury will have any implications on his availability for Sunday’s game against the Washington Football Team.
Additionally, Tom Compton Jersey did not practice on Wednesday as the offensive lineman was placed in the concussion protocol. Compton suffered a concussion two weeks prior at practice, which kept him out of the 49ers Week 12 matchup.
D.J. Jones Jersey left Monday night’s contest with an ankle injury. Fortunately, the defensive lineman didn’t suffer a high-ankle sprain, however, is likely to miss Sunday’s game. According to Shanahan, Jones will be “day-to-day.”
Good news for the 49ers as nickel corner K’Waun Williams returned to practice for the first time since Week 8. Williams missed four weeks with a high-ankle sprain and was a limited participant during Wednesday’s practice. Shanahan stated that the 49ers will continue to assess the corner over the course of the week which could be timely with Emmanuel Moseley Jersey still out with a hamstring injury.
The San Francisco 49ers announced on Wednesday they have promoted OL Tony Bergstrom to the active roster from the team’s practice squad. The team also announced they have signed CB Briean (BREE-in) Boddy-Calhoun and TE Daniel Helm Jersey to the practice squad.
Boddy-Calhoun (5-9, 193) originally entered the NFL after signing with the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent on May 6, 2016. He was waived by the Jaguars on September 3, 2016 and was claimed off waivers by the Cleveland Browns the next day. Throughout his four-year NFL career with the Browns (2016-18), Indianapolis Colts (2019) and Houston Texans (2019), he has appeared in 46 games (22 starts) and registered 141 tackles, 19 passes defensed, three interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 3.0 sacks and two forced fumbles.
In 2019, Boddy-Calhoun appeared in one game and registered two tackles with the Texans prior to being waived by the team on November 14, 2019. He then signed with the Colts on December 18, 2019 and went on to appear in two games (one start) and register 11 tackles.
A 27-year-old native of Wilmington, DE, Boddy-Calhoun attended the University of Minnesota for two seasons (2012-15) after transferring from Coffeyville (KS) Community College. He registered 153 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 15 passes defensed and 14 interceptions (two returned for touchdowns) for the Gophers.
