49ers-Giants Injury Report: George Kittle practices for second consecutive day; no Jimmy Garoppolo

Sep 24, 2020 at 12:23 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

George Kittle practiced for the second consecutive day after returning on Wednesday while recovering from a sprained MCL and bone bruise. That's good news for the 49ers, who hope to get their All-Pro tight end back soon.


Should Kittle play on Sunday, Nick Mullens may be the quarterback throwing footballs to him. Jimmy Garoppolo missed his second consecutive practice after suffering a high-ankle sprain against the New York Jets.

Running backs Raheem Mostert (knee) and Tevin Coleman (knee) didn't practice, and neither is expected to play against the Giants. The same is likely for defensive end Dee Ford (back).

"When you're dealing with a back injury, you really don't know the timetable," Shanahan said on Wednesday. "I know he's gotten some medicine this week that we're hoping helps, but that's a wait-and-see approach. So each day, you're looking at him to see how it goes."

Linebacker Dre Greenlaw (quadricep), who was limited on Wednesday, did not practice on Thursday.

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

National Tight End Day is upon us. Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots are hoping George Kittle, widely considered the best tight end in the NFL, and the San Francisco 49ers don't have a reason to celebrate when the clock hits zero on Sunday. Kittle loves National Tight End Day. Teammates like quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo may say that every day seems like National Tight End Day because of Kittle's energy and football enthusiasm.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spoke with reporters after the team's 24-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. I know you guys were confident that you'd be able to bounce back, but being able to actually go out and do it, what do you think you learned about yourselves over the last week and coming away with the win tonight? "It was really just about coming into this game, you could feel in the locker room throughout the entire week, it was a different mindset that everyone had. The last couple of weeks before this, no one liked that feeling. It wasn't who we are as a team and I think this week it just kind of
