San Francisco 49ers leading receiver Deebo Samuel will miss one to two weeks with a groin strain.
Niners coach Kyle Shanahan also said Monday that linebacker Fred Warner will miss this week’s game against Seattle with a hamstring injury.
Samuel left Sunday’s game in the second half against Minnesota after his groin area got tight on a running play. He finished with six rushes for 66 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught a pass for 12 yards.
He leads the 49ers in catches (56) and receiving yards (1,006). He’s the first WR in NFL history with 1,000 receiving yards, five receiving TDs and five rushing TDs in a season, per ESPN.
Warner will miss the first game of his career. He has 92 tackles – four for loss – and two fumble recoveries in 11 starts this season. He has played in every game in three-plus seasons in San Francisco. He made All-Pro and the Pro Bowl last season.
Shanahan also said rookie RB Trey Sermon could be headed to injured reserve with an ankle injury suffered in Sunday’s game. He would need to miss three games.
