49ers-Packers Injury Report: Top pass-catchers George Kittle, Emmanuel Sanders, Deebo Samuel don’t practice

Nov 20, 2019 at 3:22 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

While the Packers are entering the matchup in good health, the same can't be said of the 49ers. The list of players who did not practice on Wednesday is lengthy.

Among those sidelined are San Francisco's top pass catchers — tight end George Kittle (knee, ankle) and wide receivers Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and Deebo Samuel (shoulder).

Sanders and Samuel are expected to play on Sunday, even if they aren't 100-percent healthy, but head coach Kyle Shanahan insisted the two will be game-day decisions.

Kittle's status also won't be known until closer to kickoff. The Pro Bowl tight end hasn't practiced since suffering his injuries during Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals.

Shanahan was asked how he would characterize Kittle's status this week.

"Better than last week but not good enough to practice today," he responded. "It's going to come down to the wire again. Hopefully, it will work out."

Running back Matt Breida (ankle), defensive end Dee Ford (quadricep, hamstring), kicker Robbie Gould (right quadricep), and tackle Joe Staley (finger) also did not practice.

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

Deebo Samuel was one of the most exciting receivers from last year's draft class because of the versatility that he showed on offense during his rookie campaign. And he's a little tired of the media criticizing his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. Samuel was watching ESPN's First Take debate whether or not Garoppolo is ready to become an elite quarterback. The receiver responded by posting on Instagram that Garoppolo is "already elite," and begged for media personalities, like First Take host Stephen A. Smith, to "stop playing," referring to the criticisms of the 49ers

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
