Former wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. wrote a thoughtful note to San Francisco 49ers wideout, Deebo Samuel following the latter’s suffering an injury to his ankle during the game on Sunday’s Week 14 with both the San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Samuel quit the game during the second quarter due to an injury to his ankle after running the ball across to the midline for a quick gain. The initial theory was that it might be knee injuries, however, the 49ers then ruled out the player due to injuries to his ankle.
It was a good thing for Samuel, and the 49ers, Samuel apparently avoided an injury of a severe nature as per Jordan Schultz of theScore
Samuel was playing a successful match for NFC West leaders before suffering the injury. Samuel had 4 receptions that totaled 43 yards, and four carries that resulted in 21 rushing yards as well as scoring a touchdown on the rushing line. The 49ers defeated the Buccaneers to win their sixth straight victory to improve to 9-4 overall with four regular season contests to play.
As of Sunday’s match the 26-year-old Samuel was able to catch 86 passes for 569 yards, and two of touchdowns. In offseason time, the renowned wide receiver was awarded a huge three-year contract extension that is worth $71.55 million.
In the case of Beckham who is an unrestricted free agent while he recovers from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered during the Los Angeles Rams’ Super Bowl 56 win against Cincinnati in February. Cincinnati Bengals in February. The 30-year-old has already visited several teams including the Buffalo Bills, New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys, but there’s no time frame for the date he’ll take the decision.
If Samuel is absent for a long time, maybe the 49ers might think about adding the 2014 Offensive Player of the Year on their team. We’ll wait and find out the reaction Kyle Shanahan and the rest of the team think after the game.
The 49ers are playing a brief week and will be next in the lineup to play their opponents the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night.
