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."

49ers-Dolphins: Kyle Shanahan explains why it took so long to replace Brian Allen with Ahkello Witherspoon

Were you wondering what took so long for San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan to pull Brian Allen after it was clear the Miami Dolphins were targeting and embarrassing the cornerback early? Shanahan explained his reasoning after the 43-17 defeat that left the 49ers still winless at home. "Just because of how down we were (with the cornerback numbers) going into the game," Shanahan told reporters. "We got him off of practice squad this week with the injuries that we had. (Ken) Webster was his backup." Ahkello Witherspoon eventually replaced Allen, but much of the damage had already been done. "Ahkello, he tried to go this week," Shanahan continued, "but he was too tight to go throughout practice this week. Because of our low

Kyle Brandt explains why the 49ers' win should worry other NFC squads

Most were ready to write off the defending NFC champion San Francisco 49ers, especially if Kyle Shanahan's squad suffered its second consecutive embarrassing defeat. That didn't happen, though, and the 49ers emerged victorious from Sunday night's NFC West clash against the Los Angeles Rams. The game made a statement for the Niners. The injury-plagued team isn't ready to concede the season and still deserves your respect. "If I'm a fan of an NFC frontrunner, whether it be the Seahawks or the Bucs or the Saints or whoever it may be, I want the Niners out of the equation," Brandt explained on NFL Network's Good Morning Football. "I don't want them in the mix. Kick them down. I want the Rams to win last night. "When you tuned in last night, and

The San Francisco 49ers arguably have the best tight end in football in George Kittle. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick raved about him this week while speaking with 49ers reporters. San Francisco may also have the best fullback in the league. Belichick believes that to be the case. The Patriots coach was asked about Kyle Juszczyk on Friday and praised the fullback while explaining how his presence within the 49ers offense makes things more challenging to defend. "Kyle's had a very good career, and he's a versatile player," Belichick told Patriots reporters. "When he was with the Ravens, they used him in a lot of different ways, and then San Francisco signed on to a big contract for a fullback – certainly the highest-paid player at his
