George the jinx? Kittle explains why he had to stop watching 49ers-Jets

Sep 24, 2020 at 3:39 PM--

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle didn't make the trip to MetLife Stadium with his teammates for this past weekend's game against the New York Jets. He arrived at The Greenbrier in West Virginia — where the team is staying and practicing this week between its two East Coast games — late on Sunday night.

Kittle did watch the Week 2 action, though. Well, part of it, at least. At one point, once the injuries started mounting, Kittle had to stop.

"I was actually doing some rehabbing when I was watching the game," Kittle shared with reporters on Thursday. "I watched the first quarter, and then I saw two injuries, and then I went outside and did my workout."

Those injuries were to defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas. Both were carted off the field in a span of three plays, and MRIs later confirmed that both suffered season-ending ACL injuries.

"I decided I was bad luck watching the game on TV," Kittle continued. "The last game I watched on TV was our preseason (game) against the Chiefs. Watching the Niners on TV is not really fun when I should be out on the field with them.

"I'm looking forward to the next time I get the opportunity to play again, whenever that is. I can't wait."

Kittle wouldn't indicate whether or not his media availability meant there was a greater chance of him playing on Sunday against the New York Giants. The tight end is returning from a sprained MCL and bone bruise, according to multiple reports.

"The last two days (of practices) have gone well," Kittle said. "I feel better every single day, so that's awesome. Just being able to go out there and play football again a little bit is great."

Kyle Shanahan explains why George Kittle is the 49ers' YAC king

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel spoke this week of the "YAC Bros." That includes himself, rookie Brandon Aiyuk, Kendrick Bourne, and tight end George Kittle. Although, Kittle jokingly told reporters on Thursday that he has yet to receive a former invitation to the exclusive club. "Am I a part of the YAC Bros? I didn't get a formal invitation or a t-shirt of anything," Kittle said in jest. "I don't even have the Deebo shirt, so I'm a little salty about that. It's alright, though. I'll see if I can make the club after this week." There is no doubt

Kyle Juszczyk explains why Wednesday's practice felt so great, discusses 49ers rookie Brandon Aiyuk

The San Francisco 49ers roster has been devastated by injuries this season. Week 2, in particular, was unkind to the defending NFC Champions. The team lost two defensive linemen for the season, starting quarterback, running back, and more. That's why Wednesday's practice felt so great for fullback Kyle Juszczyk. Several returning players took part in the session as the team prepares to host the Miami Dolphins this weekend at Levi's Stadium. "I can't tell you how nice it was today to have [Jimmy Garoppolo and Raheem Mostert], especially, in the huddle with us," Juszczyk told Damon Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt Kolsky on 95.7 The Game on Wednesday. "Shoot, I got in the huddle today, I had George (Kittle) on my right, I had Deebo (Samuel) on my left, Jimmy and Raheem

Kyle Shanahan explains why C.J. Beathard received most of the 49ers practice reps this week

Head coach Kyle Shanahan is hopeful he'll have Jimmy Garoppolo in there at quarterback when the San Francisco 49ers take on the Miami Dolphins at Levi's Stadium this weekend. "It's looking like that's going to be the case," Shanahan said this morning on KNBR. "I definitely can't make that decision just off yesterday. ... Thursday was a lot better than Wednesday. If today continues that way, then I think it will be looking pretty good." If Garoppolo can't play, it will be either Nick Mullens or C.J. Beathard. Shanahan isn't revealing which, though, because he doesn't want to give the Dolphins any advantage. The 49ers, after all, are sitting at 2-2 and looking
