49ers-Jets Injury Report: Brandon Aiyuk practices while George Kittle, Ahkello Witherspoon don’t

Sep 16, 2020 at 3:35 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the New York Jets on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Tight end George Kittle did not practice after suffering a knee sprain during Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said the earliest he would practice would be on Friday but also noted that his tight end could play on Sunday even if that doesn't happen.

Cornerback Richard Sherman on Wednesday landed on injured reserve. He will have to miss at least the next three games, making his potential return on October 11 against the Miami Dolphins, at the earliest.

It was revealed on Wednesday that cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon is in the concussion protocol, an injury he sustained on Sunday. He also did not practice.

The good news is that wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and center Ben Garland were full participants in practice, as neither appeared on Wednesday's injury list. That is a good indication that both might be available on Sunday. Shanahan had initially said both would be limited.

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

Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) returned to practice, albeit in a blue no-contact jersey. He is in the concussion protocol. The 49ers will be without starter Richard Sherman for the next

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 2 matchup at home against the New York Jets. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game. NFL teams can each have 48 players active on game days. This season, each can promote one of two players from the practice squad up to 90 minutes before kickoff, potentially increasing the active roster up to 55 players.

Among the inactives are tight end George Kittle and pass rusher Dee Ford, who were both ruled out for the game. Kittle is dealing with an MCL sprain and bone bruise,
