49ers-Seahawks Injury Report: George Kittle, Josh Norman still not practicing

Sep 30, 2021 at 3:08 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 4 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

George Kittle missed yesterday's practice and didn't participate today either. The tight end is dealing with some calf soreness following the team's Week 3 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

"I mean, he should be alright this week," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters yesterday. "Just sorer today than we expected, and we'll take it day-by-day now."

Cornerback Josh Norman suffered a lung contusion against the Packers. He also missed his second consecutive day of practice but was seen stretching and sprinting on a side field. Running back Elijah Mitchell, who suffered a shoulder injury during Week 2, was limited and wore a blue no-contact jersey again.

The 49ers will hold one more practice tomorrow at 12:05 p.m. PT.

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

Vernon Davis on 49ers TE George Kittle: "His skill set is unmatched"

By David Bonilla
Jul 31

Vernon Davis remains the all-time leading receiver among San Francisco 49ers tight ends. His 5,640 receiving yards over his 10 NFL seasons with the team ranks sixth in 49ers history. Hot on his tail is current tight end George Kittle, who has amassed 4,489 receiving yards in five years. Kittle is likely just a couple of seasons away from surpassing Davis in the 49ers record books. Davis was at training camp in Santa Clara this past week and was asked about Kittle. Below is what one great 49ers tight end had to say about the other. "George Kittle is unbelievable," Davis told Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. "He's a wonderful talent. Every skill position, especially the tight end, they have different attributes. George Kittle, he has his ability to be able to



George Kittle, Nick Bosa break down how Trey Lance will elevate the 49ers offense

Tight end George Kittle is excited about the potential of the San Francisco 49ers offense in 2022. He knows Trey Lance at quarterback will open things up for an already creative play-caller like Kyle Shanahan. The always enthusiastic Kittle was among several 49ers players who joined KNBR after Tuesday's practice. Of course, the conversation eventually drifted toward the team's new starting quarterback. The tight end loves what he's seen from Lance compared to where the 22-year-old was just a year ago. "Honestly, my favorite thing about Trey right now is that I've just seen him get better, honestly," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "From where he was last year in OTAs to where he was at training camp last year, to throughout the season last year, to even



Why George Kittle loves going against Jimmie Ward; 49ers safety forecasts 'Pick City'

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined KNBR after Tuesday's practice and started the conversation by praising a defensive teammate—Jimmie Ward. Ward might be the most underrated player on a defense boasting stars Nick Bosa and Fred Warner. The 49ers tight end knows how valuable the veteran safety is for the team, though. "I said [in a previous interview] Jimmie Ward might be one of the most underrated players in the NFL," Kittle said on the Papa & Lund show. "... When it's man coverage, you don't want Jimmie Ward on you because he's quick, he's physical, and he's really, really fast. He's got great hands, and he knows how to hold without getting holding calls. He's very good at that. "I'm very blessed to be able to go against



How 49ers' Trey Lance reminds Ray-Ray McCloud of Josh Allen

By David Bonilla
Aug 9

Wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud entered the NFL in 2018 as a sixth-round pick with the Buffalo Bills. That was the same year the team made quarterback Josh Allen the No. 7 overall pick. McCloud spent two seasons with the Bills before bouncing between the Carolina Panthers, Bills, and Pittsburgh Steelers. The San Francisco 49ers signed McCloud this offseason, hoping to make the wideout their primary return man. He'll have to contribute on offense as well since head coach Kyle Shanahan values versatility. That means catching passes from second-year quarterback Trey Lance. McCloud spoke with reporters after Tuesday's practice as the 49ers prepare for their preseason opener against the Green Bay Packers. He was asked about his new quarterback and how the 22-year-old
