49ers Star Ruled Out For Week 8

The San Francisco 49ers have had a solid start to the 2022 NFL season, and with no team in the NFC West jumping out to a massive lead, this weekends clash between the 49ers and The Los Angeles Rams becomes even more important, but unfortunately for San Francisco, they've been dealt a devastating blow just days before the huge divisional matchup.

Today, the 49ers have had to rule out star wide receiver Deebo Samuel, as he missed his third straight practice due to a hamstring injury, and with all the injuries this team has had to deal with thus far in 2022, it's another bad blow that could seriously effect their standing in the NFC West for the rest of the season. Through seven games, Samuel has over 500 all purpose yards to go along with 3 Touchdown's, and with a less than stellar QB under centre, his versatility and big play ability is invaluable. 

With a bye next week, it gives the young star more time to recover, which will be incredibly helpful for San Francisco, and if they can pick up a win without him in Week 8 and get healthy during the bye week, this is a team that could make a huge run in the second half of the season.
