49ers-Packers: Kyle Shanahan provides post-game updates on Deebo Samuel, Trent Williams

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after his team's stunning playoff win over the Green Bay Packers—the second in as many weeks. He provided updates on a couple of key players who fought through injuries in the game.

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel exited the game after a 12-yard catch in the third quarter. He was tackled by linebacker Krys Barnes, started to make his way to the sideline, and then paused and went down.

Samuel eventually made it to the sideline under his own power and even remained in the game. However, he exited again late in the fourth quarter, hopping on one foot to the sideline. Samuel was not able to put weight on his right leg and needed help to reach the bench. Shanahan didn't sound too concerned. "He was out celebrating with them [after the win]," Shanahan told reporters. "He seemed alright." Samuel didn't sound too concerned either. "My ankle got twisted up, and I got scared there for a second, but I'll be alright," Samuel told Stacey Dales after the game.
All-Pro tackle Trent Williams got his right ankle wrapped after looking to be in pain in the third quarter. He stayed in the game but was later seen limping off the field. Williams was seen on crutches after the game. Although, that could have been precautionary. His leg was still taped up, but he was not wearing a protective boot. "We're going to have to get some X-rays and stuff on him," Shanahan said. "I mean, I saw him hobbling around the whole second half, so I'm not sure yet."
