49ers Samuel, McCaffrey, Garoppolo to miss practice for NFC title game

SANTA CLARA — Three of the 49ers’ top offensive weapons — Deebo Samuel, Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell — won’t participate in Wednesday’s initial practice for the upcoming NFC Championship Game.

Samuel surfaced on the injury report with an ankle issue that, according to coach Kyle Shanahan, has been hindering the 2021 All-Pro, presumably dating to last month’s sprain against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“It’s kind of sore. Just being cautious and trying to get ready for Sunday,” Samuel said.

McCaffrey sustained a right-calf contusion and Mitchell a groin issue in Sunday’s 19-12 NFC divisional-round win over the Dallas Cowboys, a victory that catapulted the 49ers (15-4) into Sunday’s NFC Championship Game at the Philadelphia Eagles (15-3).
