49ers activate George Kittle off IR, place two on IR, announce other moves

Dec 25, 2020 at 1:36 PM--


Merry Christmas, Kyle Shanahan. You get a George Kittle.

The San Francisco 49ers officially activated the tight end off of injured reserve in time for Saturday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Kittle suffered a broken bone in his foot during a Week 8 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The team opened the practice window for him last week.

The bad news is that San Francisco also placed two players on injured reserve. They are running back Raheem Mostert (ankle) and quarterback Nick Mullens (right elbow).

The 49ers announced the following additional roster moves.

  • DL Kevin Givens' status for Saturday has been downgraded to "out."
  • OL Colton McKivitz has been activated off of the reserve/COVID-19 list.
  • DL Darrion Daniels has been promoted from the practice squad to the active roster.
  • DL Alex Barrett and TE Daniel Helm have been activated/flexed from the practice squad as COVID-19 replacements.
  • CB Tim Harris Jr. and WR Jordan Matthews have been activated/flexed from the practice squad.

The San Francisco 49ers announced that the team has activated wide receiver Mohamed Sanu Sr. from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship Game matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers opened a roster spot on Tuesday by waiving safety Jarrod Wilson. Sanu landed on injured reserve on November 15, 2021, due to a knee injury. He caught 15 passes for 177 yards through eight games before being placed on injured reserve. The Cincinnati Bengals made Sanu a third-round draft pick out of Rutgers in 2012.

Week 3's matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers was a heartbreaker for The Faithful. The fans at Levi's Stadium watched Jimmy Garoppolo engineer a thrilling comeback touchdown drive to take the lead, only to watch Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers crush their hopes with a game-winning drive in the closing seconds. A lot has changed since that 30-28 defeat. That kicked off a four-game losing streak for the 49ers. However, San Francisco finished the season strong and made the playoffs in the final week of the regular season. Green Bay muscled its way to the No. 1 seed in the NFC. Now, we get to watch the two teams go head-to-head again, this time for the right to advance to the NFC Championship Game. "I don't think they look much

Tight end George Kittle caught four passes for 63 yards against the Green Bay Packers this past weekend. That followed a one-catch, 18-yard performance against the Dallas Cowboys a week earlier. Kittle is getting healthier with each passing week, which could mean the tight end is poised for a big game. This season, Kittle was on injured reserve for nearly a month due to a calf injury. He finished the season with 71 receptions for 910 yards and a career-high six touchdowns. Kittle is one of the more energetic personalities in the 49ers locker room. That energy carries over to game days. That would mean nothing if Kittle couldn't produce and help his team. "We love George and everything off the field, but what he does the most is on the field," head
