Watch George Kittle and new 49ers defender Ziggy Ansah practicing at The Greenbrier

Sep 23, 2020 at 3:42 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers held their first practice of the week at The Greenbrier in West Virginia as the team opted to remain on the East Coast between its back-to-back games at MetLife Stadium. The 49ers beat the New York Jets 31-13 this past Sunday and look to have similar success this weekend against the New York Giants.

Tight end George Kittle returned to practice this week. He was limited on Wednesday. Kittle reportedly suffered a sprained MCL and bone bruise during the 49ers' Week 1 loss against the Arizona Cardinals and was inactive against the Jets.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan remains optimistic that his All-Pro tight end might be available against the Giants.

"I'll see him today for the first time," Shanahan told reporters before practice. "Looking forward to seeing how he moves out there in individual (drills)."


San Francisco signed defensive end Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah this week to help offset some of the losses along the defensive line. The veteran pass rusher practiced with his teammates for the first time on Wednesday.

"Ziggy's had a hell of a career," Shanahan said. "He did a great job in Detroit, had to play against him a number of times. He's a guy I always hated playing against. Had a little bit of a setback the last couple of years with some injuries, and we think we're getting him in here, and we know he's hungry. We love the guy."

George Kittle weighs in on 49ers' QB situation, says getting Jimmy Garoppolo back will be a 'huge boost'

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined KNBR on Tuesday morning, the morning after attending the wedding of his close friend and teammate, wide receiver Trent Taylor. The NFL star was actually in his car, returning to the Santa Clara area during the interview, resulting in some audio drops and a missed exit on the freeway. The topic of the 49ers quarterback situation came up. Kittle had both Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard throwing him the football on Sunday night. By the way, Kittle had a phenomenal night, hauling in 15 passes on 15 targets for 183 yards and a score. It wasn't as good a night for Mullens, who has been stepping in for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo. Mullens earned the lowest Pro Football Focus grade for a starting quarterback this season

George Kittle ready to make his case for 'YAC Bros' invite during 49ers-Dolphins

Deebo Samuel welcomed rookie Brandon Aiyuk into the team's "YAC Bros" club. The San Francisco 49ers receivers take pride in their ability to rack up yards after the catch. It's a skill that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch seek in their offensive weapons. Maybe the "YAC Bros" is a bit more exclusive of a club than you might think. Apparently, All-Pro tight end George Kittle hasn't received his invite yet despite leading the team this season in total yards after the catch. Two seasons ago, he led the league in that category. "Am I a part of the YAC Bros? I didn't get a formal invitation or a t-shirt of anything," Kittle jokingly told reporters
