WR Deebo Samuel, RB Christian McCaffrey among notable 49ers seated Wednesday

Samuel followed Shanahan by telling reporters his ankle was sore, but he’s in no doubt he’ll be on the court on Sunday conference title showdown with the Philadelphia Eagles.

McCaffrey suffered a calf injury in Sunday’s divisional round earn on the Dallas Cowboys, and could be seen attempting to stretch the affected calf on the sideline during the game. Mitchell suffered his groin injury in the same game, but still managed to carry the ball 14 times for 51 yards in the victory. San Francisco hopes the two can arrive in time to take on another stingy defense this weekend.

Garoppolo’s lack of participation should come as no surprise, considering how much time he has missed due to a foot injury which was initially considered a season-ending issue. Shanahan said on Wednesday he didn’t expect Garoppolo to be able to play this weekend, and with the rookie Brock Purdy to remain undefeated as a starter is not an urgent matter.

What remains urgent is the need to prepare to give the top-seeded Eagles their best shot with a chance to put the Super Bowl back on the line. This group will be dedicated to such an effort, as well as a generous treatment and rehabilitation with the aim of success before Sunday.
