SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers have placed starting receiver Deebo Samuel on the non-football injury list after foot surgery and they say he might miss the start of the season.

Samuel suffered a fracture in his left foot last month during informal workouts with teammates in Tennessee and the timeline for his return remains unknown. 

General manager John Lynch told flagship radio station KNBR that it's "fair to say" Samuel may miss some games to start the season.
