Niners WR Deebo Samuel sidelined with tight glute

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel left Friday’s joint practice with the Los Angeles Chargers early because of tightness in his gluteal muscle, according to multiple reports.

Samuel suffered the injury during the early portion of practice, was treated on the field by the team’s training staff and further evaluated in a medical tent at the Chargers’ training camp facility.

Samuel later returned to practice but was relegated to being a spectator.

“Deebo, he had a tight glute today, so he pulled himself out of practice,” San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan told local radio station KNBR. “I know he’s getting the MRI right now, so I’m in the same boat as you guys are. I’m sitting here waiting to get the news back.”

Samuel, 25, has 90 receptions for 1,193 yards and seven total touchdowns in two NFL seasons.

The South Carolina product missed nine games last season with foot and hamstring injuries.
