The San Francisco 49ers dominated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the first half on Sunday, but the team suffered a massive blow near the end of the second quarter. Star receiver Deebo Samuel was carted off the field following an ugly leg injury.

The injury came on a three-yard run where Samuel fumbled as he was rolled up from behind.

UPDATE: Samuel has been ruled out for the game with an ankle injury.
