49ers inactives vs. Packers: Matt Breida, George Kittle will play

Oct 15, 2018 at 3:56 PM--



It appears as if San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle and running back Matt Breida, both of who were listed as questionable, will play in Week 6 for the Niners' prime-time matchup versus the Green Bay Packers on Monday Night Football.

Kittle was dealing with a knee issue, while Breida suffered a high-ankle sprain in Week 5 at home versus the Arizona Cardinals.

Neither player appeared on San Francisco's Week 6 inactive report, which is as follows:


Earlier in the day, the Niners promoted tight end Ross Dwelley from the practice squad and released defensive lineman Ryan Delaire. This led to some speculation Kittle might be inactive for the contest, although Wick being designated inactive instead pretty much sums up the transaction.

The 49ers will need both Kittle and Breida to perform well under the bright lights at Lambeau Field, especially considering the team has to contend with future Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Keeping Rodgers off the field will be a tough test, meaning head coach Kyle Shanahan's top weapons will need to be key contributors during the game.

San Francisco and Green Bay kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday Night Football.

A San Francisco 49ers player rarely suits up for a game without practicing during the days leading up to that game. George Kittle is a rare tight end, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that Kittle wouldn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. The tight end may not practice until Friday, and even that is not a certainty. That doesn't mean the New York Jets won't have to game plan for him, though. "Kittle, he's battling," Shanahan told reporters before Wednesday's practice. "We thought it would be alright. He woke up the next day a little sore. He fully expects to be there Sunday, like he always does. Just like he always plays through the game when it happens." Kittle suffered a knee sprain on a hit from safety Budda Baker during Sunday's loss to
