49ers injury news: Joe Staley, Mike McGlinchey, Kyle Juszczyk practice; George Kittle and Ahkello Witherspoon don’t

Nov 5, 2019 at 1:09 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers expect to get several key starters back for their Week 10 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks next Monday night. The team is holding a bonus practice on Tuesday, and three injured players were on the field at the start.

Tackle Joe Staley (fractured fibula) has already been practicing in a limited capacity and looked like he was preparing to get some work in during Tuesday's session. Returning to the practice field was the 49ers' other starting tackle, Mike McGlinchey (knee), and fullback Kyle Juszczyk (MCL sprain).

Tight end George Kittle, who suffered a leg injury last week against the Arizona Cardinals, did not practice. An MRI reportedly revealed no long-term damage for the Pro Bowl tight end.

Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (foot sprain), according to multiple reports, did not practice. Although, he was seen rehabbing his injury on a side field along with wide receiver Jalen Hurd.

Also absent from Tuesday's practice was tight end Levin Toilolo (groin).

The 49ers opened the practice window for tight end Garret Celek, who remains on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.

These notes are based on observations from reporters. The 49ers are not required to issue a practice participation report for Tuesday. The team has three more practices scheduled for this week.

George Kittle finally got paid and secured his long-term future with the San Francisco 49ers. His teammates could not be happier to have football's best tight end locked up for years to come. That includes offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey, who joined KNBR on Thursday night and discussed Kittle's massive five-year contract extension. "Every single person in this locker room is ecstatic for him," McGlinchey told Mark Willard. "I don't know that I've ever been around a teammate or a player that's more deserving of something like this than George. The way that he works, the person that he is, the leader that he is, and the energy that he brings to our team every single

Kyle Shanahan excited to use Jordan Reed and George Kittle on the field at the same time

The San Francisco 49ers haven't officially announced the Jordan Reed signing. That's because the veteran tight end still has to pass his COVID-19 tests (yes, plural) and physical before joining his new teammates for training camp. But the signing is as good as done. Both general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan have already discussed the addition with the media. The latter took it a step further. Shanahan is obviously salivating at the thoughts of what Reed can do for his offense, confirming that he plans to utilize both Reed and All-Pro George Kittle on the field at the same time. "If you have tight ends on the field who can run-block, that means you're going to get three linebackers out there instead of two and a nickelback," Shanahan explained

Mike McGlinchey will see a different face when he looks across the San Francisco 49ers offensive line this season. His former teammate and close friend, Joe Staley, called it a career in April. He is replaced by seven-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle Trent Williams, whom the 49ers acquired from Washington via a trade. Early into training camp, Williams has already made an impression on McGlinchey. "He's been an unbelievable guy to work with over the last two weeks or so," McGlinchey told reporters on Monday via a video conference call. "Just in walk-throughs, you still kind of get a little jaw-dropped by how smooth and how much of an athlete he truly is at his size. "It's going to be cool to pick his brain over the next couple of weeks here, going
