The Cincinnati Bengals beat the Seattle Seahawks in London on Sunday to reach the 3-3 mark on the season. The Bengals are on their bye week, but they already know that their next opponent will be shorthanded.
The 49ers will be without at least two of their top players for Monday night’s matchup with the Vikings in Minneapolis.
The 49ers won’t have star receiver Deebo Samuel for their Week 7 matchup against the Bengals. Kyle Shanahan told reporters that Samuel will miss Monday’s game against the Vikings and San Francisco’s matchup against Cincinnati with a hairline fracture in his shoulder.
The 27-year-old has 20 receptions for 302 yards and one touchdown this season. He also has 95 yards and one rushing score.
The Bengals play the 49ers on Sunday, Oct. 29 at 4:25 p.m. ET at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California. This is significant news for the Bengals as they look to push on after a 1-3 start.
Samuel is a dangerous playmaker who is the 49ers’ second-leading receiver behind Brandon Aiyuk. Williams has been the standard for greatness at left tackle for years and years now.
