49ers-Seahawks Injury Report: George Kittle, Ahkello Witherspoon, Robbie Gould don’t practice

Nov 7, 2019 at 4:10 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 10 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

TE George Kittle (knee, ankle) didn't practice following last week's injury against the Arizona Cardinals.

"I'm hoping he can play this week, but we'll see," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters. "It's going to probably not be a decision until the end of the week."

Neither CB Ahkello Witherspoon (foot, quadricep) nor K Robbie Gould (quadricep) practiced. Witherspoon could see some work on Friday, said Shanahan, while Gould has "a chance" to play against the Seahawks. In case he can't, the 49ers signed K Chase McLaughlin — a rookie — on Thursday.

TE Levine Toilolo (groin) also did not practice.

The 49ers hope to get OT Joe Staley (fibula), OT Mike McGlinchey (knee), and FB Kyle Juszczyk (knee) back for Monday night's game. All three were among the players limited during Thursday's practice.

"I'd say I feel a little bit more confidence with — just a little bit more — with Staley and Juice," Shanahan said. "I think they're just a hair ahead of McGlinchey in that area. [...] We're hoping to get all three, but I can't guarantee any of them."

Below are Thursday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Seahawks, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

Rapoport explains why George Kittle seeking wide receiver money from 49ers would be 'an uphill battle'

There is no doubt in NFL Insider Ian Rapoport's mind that George Kittle will eventually become the highest-paid tight end in NFL history. That hasn't happened yet because talks between Kittle and the San Francisco 49ers have stalled. While Kittle plays the tight end position, he is so much more. He is the 49ers' best receiver and one of their best blockers. Kittle can do it all, so he and his agent aren't using the tight end market to determine his value. Some have speculated that Kittle's agent could be seeking a contract that is somewhere between offensive linemen and wide receiver money. That would put Kittle around $18 million annually, which

George Kittle's market value could have been set by Arik Armstead, says 49ers insider

The San Francisco 49ers and George Kittle, or his representation, at least, are having a difficult time agreeing on the tight end's value. The team would like to lock up the versatile All-Pro to a long-term deal, but it's that versatility that has complicated things. Kittle is the 49ers' most valuable receiver. He is also one of the team's best blockers. To just look at the tight end market would be an injustice. He is so much more. Kittle's agent, Jack Bechta, has described his client as a "unicorn." "He's just one of a kind," Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area told Will Brinson on CBS Sports' Pick Six NFL Podcast. "And the thinking is that even though

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo, Mike McGlinchey, George Kittle explain why a Super Bowl hangover is 'not a possibility'

Several San Francisco 49ers players took part in this week's State of the Franchise event. One of the topics of conversation surrounded the possibility of a Super Bowl hangover. As tough as it is for a Super Bowl champion to claw its way back to the mountaintop, it is even tougher for the runner-up. All too often, that second-place team will regress the next season, but 49ers players don't see that happening with this squad. Why is that? What makes this 49ers team so different from past Super Bowl runner-ups? What makes its players think that they can get back and win it all, this time? "I think it's the guys in our building and the leadership that we have," responded offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey during the conversation with Keiana Martin and Greg Papa. "It's
