Maiocco notes that 49ers WR Trent Taylor underwent surgery last August to repair a Jones fracture in his foot. While Taylor was expected back for the majority of the season, he ultimately had five surgeries.
Maiocco notes that Samuel said on social media that he expects to return in ten weeks, which is prior to Week 1 of the season.

According to Mike Garafolo, one of the 49ers players who was working out in Nashville tested positive for COVID-19. Garafolo says the rest of the group is getting tested and trying to figure out how and when they can travel.
Tom Pelissero adds that the entire group, which includes all of the 49ers’ quarterbacks and many of their skill players, got tested this morning and are awaiting results.
