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 2021 NFL Draft is a three-day event from April 29th to May 1st that will be hosted in Cleveland, Ohio. A select number of draft prospects will be invited to Cleveland to walk across the stage and shake hands with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. The NFL Draft will also feature draft prospects participating remotely across the country. Last month, the 49ers arguably made their most aggressive move since trading Joe Montana, as they gave up multiple picks to jump from No. 12 to No. 3 in this year's NFL Draft. The first Mock Draft Roundup featured primarily defensive players but NFL pundits have now shifted their 49ers mock drafts to the quarterback position.
