San Francisco receiver Deebo Samuel is slated to be back on the field when the 49ers visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Samuel missed the past three games due to a hairline fracture in his shoulder. He practiced in full all week and was not given an injury status on Friday.

The 49ers (5-3) lost all three games without their versatile star and scored just 17 points in each of them.

"Anytime you're not part of the game, it's kind of hard but I have kind of been there before," Samuel told reporters. "It's just another game, not trying to do nothing crazy, just go out there and do what I do."

Samuel has caught 20 passes for 302 yards and one touchdown in six games this season. He also had rushed for 95 yards and one score on 18 carries.

The fifth-year pro's best season was in 2021 when he established career bests of 77 receptions for 1,405 yards and six touchdowns and rushed for 365 yards and eight scores. He was a Pro Bowl selection that season.

Star left tackle Trent Williams (ankle) is questionable after being a limited practice participant the past two days.

Williams, a 10-time Pro Bowl selection, has missed the past two games.

"I think he's real questionable to be plain," San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said. "That's what my eyes see too. We have tomorrow too, tomorrow is Saturday. If it's not tomorrow, we'll wait until game time."

Nose tackle Javon Hargrave (knee) is questionable after he felt soreness during the week.

Defensive end Drake Jackson (knee) and guard Aaron Banks (toe) were ruled out for the 49ers.

As for the Jaguars, receiver Zay Jones (knee) will miss his fourth straight game.

Among the players listed questionable are safety Andre Cisco (hamstring) and cornerback Tyson Campbell (hamstring).
