The San Francisco 49ers definitively know that Deebo Samuel didn't suffer a fractured shoulder, head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Monday.
What the team doesn't know is whether the receiver will be able to play in the NFC championship game when the 49ers host the Detroit Lions.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that Samuel is considered "50-50" for Sunday's contest.
Samuel missed the second half of San Francisco's game against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday. In the first half of the divisional game, Samuel injured his left shoulder.
The 49ers are particularly wary about the health of Samuel's shoulder because he already sustained a hairline fracture in his shoulder in Week 6 of the regular season. San Francisco then proceeded to lose its next two games without him in the lineup.
This is the third consecutive NFC title bout for San Francisco.
