Deebo Samuel could return in Week 18 for 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel is poised to come back for a playoff run. He managed to return to practice last week and could play in the regular season finale Sunday against Arizona. Samuel said he wanted to see how his body responds in practice this week before knowing if he will play against the Cardinals. Getting Samuel back would provide a big boost for the streaking 49ers, who have won nine straight games and head into Week 18 with a chance at the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs.
