49ers-Packers Injury Report: George Kittle, Dee Ford don’t practice, Kwon Alexander limited

Jan 15, 2020 at 3:04 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for the NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. On Wednesday, the team held its first of three full practices this week.

Defensive end Dee Ford (quadricep, hamstring) did not practice. Although, he took part in warmups. Ford hasn't had a setback. Holding him out of Wednesday's practice was just a precautionary move, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.


Tight end George Kittle also sat out practice. Unlike Ford, Kittle wasn't even on the field during warmups. The 49ers explained that the tight end is dealing with "ankle soreness" from Saturday's win over the Minnesota Vikings. Kittle is expected to be ready for Sunday's game against the Packers.


On Saturday, linebacker Kwon Alexander played in his first game since October 31, 2019, when he suffered a torn pectoral muscle. The defender was limited during Wednesday's practice.

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

Barrows: 'Someone in the know' feels George Kittle, 49ers could land on a contract worth $13 million a year

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the long-term contract for San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle. Some even feel a new deal could fetch the All-Pro an annual salary up to $20 million. Naturally, when one person starts talking about those kinds of numbers, everyone does. That would shatter the ceiling of the tight end market. Right now, the top salaries for the position group remain under $11 million. To nearly double that when next year's salary cap situation remains uncertain might not be in the San Francisco 49ers' best interests, and at least one person doesn't believe it will come to that.

Execs, players, coaches pick George Kittle over Travis Kelce as the NFL's best tight end

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler polled 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players, asking them to identify the NFL's best tight end. The result, as far as the top choice, probably won't come as a surprise to San Francisco 49ers fans. It's George Kittle. But that doesn't mean the top spot was absent of debate. "Voters gave their best 10 to 15 players at a position," explained Fowler, "then we compiled the results and ranked candidates based on number of top-10 votes, composite average, interviews and research. We had several ties, so we broke them by isolating the two-man matchup with additional voting and

George Kittle's 2020 salary could provide incentive to finalize deal sooner rather than later

San Francisco 49ers fans are growing increasingly tired of a lack of significant news on the George Kittle front — specifically when it comes to his new contract. During a typical offseason, a new deal would likely be done, and the All-Pro tight end would be locked up for the foreseeable future. This isn't a typical offseason, and these aren't typical times. That has made things increasingly difficult and is likely the cause of the contract delay. There is no telling how next year's salary cap will look. It wasn't too long ago that everyone was sure the cap would jump significantly, thanks to a new Collective Bargaining Agreement and impending television deals. COVID-19 changed all of that. While the NFL is pushing forward as if
