On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 San Francisco 49ers (6-6) wide receiver Deebo Samuel says he’s feeling good and is almost ready to come back from his groin injury to face the Cincinnati Bengals (7-5) this Sunday.

#2 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell will be out of commission this Sunday against the Bengals as he’s still trying to recover from his concussion and knee injury. Mitchell has had his setbacks with injuries he had a shoulder and broken finger which caused him to miss two games.

#3 Cornerback Dontae Johnson will not play in Cincinnati Sunday due to a personal matter. Johnson was supposed to take Emmanuel Mosley’s spot but Mosely will not start and the 49ers will start Deommodore Lenoir or Ambry Thomas both are rookies that said will coach Shanahan be concerned about how the corner position is played Sunday?

#4 The Bengals have won five out of their last eight games most recently taking a 41-22 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers (7-5). The Bengals just simply couldn’t generate any offense against the Chargers getting shutout in the first and fourth quarters. Joe how do you see the 49ers and Bengals matching up today in Cincinnati.

#5 Last week Bengals quarterback Joe Burrow threw for 300 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the loss to the Los Angeles Chargers. How do you see the 49ers defending against Burrow and his passing game today.
