The San Francisco 49ers have received bad news regarding one of its stars. Star wide receiver Deebo Samuel will miss at least the next two weeks.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan announced on Saturday that Samuel has a hairline fracture in his shoulder. He is expected to miss games against the Minnesota Vikings and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Before his injury, Samuel had made six starts for the 49ers on the season. He had 20 receptions for 302 yards and a touchdown.

Samuel, who is also used in the run game, has had 18 carries for 95 yards and a touchdown. He had two carries for 11 yards in the game against the Browns.

With Samuel out and Christian McCaffrey potentially sidelined with an oblique injury, the 49ers’ offensive attack has taken a hit. Shanahan and his offensive coach will have to come up with a new approach with the players that he does have available.

Samuel is second on the team in receiving yards with 302 yards. Brandon Aiyuk leads the team with 454 yards.

Aiyuk and George Kittle should see an increase in targets until Samuel returns.
