The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 6 contest against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in Los Angeles, California.

The surprise news was that the 49ers' Pro Bowl tight end, George Kittle, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game. He is dealing with a groin injury and was limited during Friday's practice.

"I don't have much information on it," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Friday. "They'll check it out here this afternoon, but he was limited because of it today."

Shanahan was asked if he expects Kittle to play on Sunday.

"Right now, I do," he responded. "But it's still a little bit early, so that's why he will be questionable. We'll see what news I get later, after he gets with the trainers and stuff, and gets it checked out."

The 49ers will be without both their starting tackles, Joe Staley (fibula) and Mike McGlinchey (knee), along with the team's only fullback, Kyle Juszczyk (knee). Rookie Justin Skule has been playing in place of Staley since the veteran's Week 2 injury. Daniel Brunskill will replace McGlinchey.

The 49ers did not sign a replacement fullback this week and plan to play without one.

Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was excused from practice for personal reasons but is expected to play in Los Angeles, said Shanahan.

On the Rams side, the team will be without cornerback Aqib Talib (rib), and running back Todd Gurley (quadricep) has been listed as doubtful for this weekend.
