49ers LB Fred Warner (hamstring) listed as doubtful vs. Seahawks

San Francisco 49ers standout linebacker Fred Warner has a slim chance of playing in Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks despite being ruled out earlier this week by coach Kyle Shanahan.

Warner, who has a hamstring injury, was listed as doubtful on Friday’s injury report. He has never missed a game in his four-year career.

Warner didn’t participate in practices this week.

The 2020 Pro Bowler is just eight tackles away from reaching 100 for the fourth straight season. He has 459 in 59 career games.

As expected, star receiver Deebo Samuel will miss the game due to a groin injury he sustained in last Sunday’s 34-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings.

Others declared out were cornerback Dre Greenlaw (groin), running back Trey Sermon (ankle) and defensive tackle Maurice Hurst (calf).

San Francisco listed linebacker Marcell Harris (concussion) as questionable.

As for the Seahawks, guard Damien Lewis (elbow, groin) is doubtful. Lewis reportedly had a cyst removed from his groin this week.

Three running backs are questionable for Seattle: Alex Collins (abdomen), Travis Homer (calf) and Rashaad Penny (hamstring).

Seattle signed veteran Adrian Peterson earlier this week due to the shortage of ball carriers.

“He’s been a remarkable competitor forever and it was so obvious that it was really a boost for a bunch of guys, the young guys in particular,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said of Peterson. “He’s serious about playing. He’s not just here for show.”

Seattle (3-8) has lost six of its past seven games as it goes up against San Francisco (6-5), which has won three straight.

Niners WR Deebo Samuel (groin) out 1-2 weeks

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.
