George Kittle, a tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, has missed 10 games over the last two seasons due to various injuries. Unfortunately, it appears that he will have to deal with at least one injury this season. Kittle was listed on the 49ers’ injury report with a calf injury after last Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers. On Wednesday and Thursday, he was unable to practice, but he was able to participate in a limited capacity on Friday.
Kittle has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks by the 49ers. However, it appears that he’ll be a true game-time decision in Week 4.
During a press conference on Friday afternoon, Kittle admitted that he’ll wait until Sunday to see how his body feels before making a final decision.
“I’m dealing with some swelling and minor pain, and we’re doing everything we can to get me ready for Sunday,” Kittle told reporters. “I’m going to give it my all to be on the field on Sunday.” I’ll be out there if my body allows it. ”

49ers general manager John Lynch stated that Kittle’s availability is currently unknown. Naturally, he’s crossing his fingers that the All-Pro tight end will be cleared to play.
“We’re hopeful that we have him,” Lynch said, “and we certainly need him.” “As we saw the other night and have seen so many times, he’s a tremendous player. ”
If Kittle is unable to play on Sunday, backup tight ends Ross Dwelley and Charlie Woerner will be called upon to fill in.
On Sunday, an official update on Kittle should be available an hour prior to kickoff. Nokia News
