What happened to Deebo Samuel earlier in the season?

In Week 14, when Deebo Samuel was carried off the pitch, there was undoubtedly concern in the San Francisco camp about a potentially serious injury and a lengthy layoff.

After picking up the injury in the game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the All-Pro wide receiver for the San Francisco 49ers commented:

"I believed I was done. It was a somewhat frightful sight since, in my 15 years of playing, I had never been in a position like that. It was insane just to know that I survived."

However, after Deebo Samuel was diagnosed with a high ankle injury, optimism grew that he would be able to return before the end of the regular season, and that's exactly what happened.

In 13 games this season, Samuel has two TD receptions. He will now face a Seattle team that ranks 30th in the league in rush defense and surrenders 150.2 rushing yards per game.
