The 49ers placed Deebo Samuel on their Week 12 injury report, but the wide receiver will be available when they host the Saints on Sunday.

The San Francisco 49ers figured out how to involve essentially all of their playmaking superstars during the Week 11 Monday Night Football win over the Arizona Cardinals.

However, at some point during that game (or potentially during activities in the days after), wide receiver Deebo Samuel aggravated his hamstring and subsequently ended up on the Niners’ Week 12 injury report leading into Sunday’s contest at home versus the 4-7 New Orleans Saints.

Samuel was limited in practice during the week, officially listed as questionable for the contest.

On Sunday morning, though, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported Samuel was likely to play despite the setback:

And once San Francisco released its Week 12 inactive report, Rapoport’s report was confirmed as Samuel wasn’t present on it.

He’ll be available alongside fellow wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk.

49ers inactive report for Week 12 vs. Saints

The 49ers have a notably clean slate of health for Week 12 against New Orleans, although there’s one player who’s become something of a regular occurrence on the list, defensive tackle Arik Armstead.

Armstead, who hasn’t played since Week 4 because of foot and ankle injuries, has also not been placed on injured reserve.

He joins the list of players who won’t suit up on Sunday:

  • DL Arik Armstead
  • RB Tyrion Davis-Price
  • OL Nick Zakelj
  • LB Curtis Robinson
  • TE Tyler Kroft

The Niners not activating Kroft is somewhat interesting, but he’s been a minimal part of the offense to date, having posted just two catches for 15 yards this season.

San Francisco kicks off against New Orleans on Sunday, Nov. 27 at 4:25 p.m. ET from Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.
