Injury roundup: 49ers WR Deebo Samuel (ribs, knee) expected to play vs. Cardinals

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel (ribs, knee) is expected to play in Sunday's game versus the Cardinals, despite barely practicing this week, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per sources. Running back Elijah Mitchell (knee) is not expected to play, Rapoport added.

Samuel was listed as questionable after suffering a rib injury during the 49ers' 30-12 win over the Giants. Samuel recorded six receptions for 129 yards and scored one touchdown in Week 3. Throughout the season so far, Samuel has recorded 17 receptions for 247 yards and one touchdown.

Although having Samuel active is good news for San Francisco, bad news followed with Mitchell, who is not expected to take the field. Mitchell has recorded 16 carries for 52 yards so far this season, with the young running back not playing in Week 2. Now the 49ers will keep on rolling with Christian McCaffrey in the backfield.

The 49ers and Cardinals kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET.
