49ers-Seahawks Injury Report: George Kittle, Elijah Mitchell questionable for Sunday; Josh Norman doubtful

Oct 1, 2021 at 1:29 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.

The good news is that reporters saw tight end George Kittle during today's practice after absences on Wednesday and Thursday. He was on a side field getting in some work. Kittle's presence is progress and potentially a positive sign that the star might be available on Sunday.


"He'll get a few reps out there today, and then we're hoping he'll be ready by Sunday," head coach Kyle Shanahan said this morning on KNBR. "Even if he doesn't go today, George is a guy who's played long enough, who plays the game as hard as he possibly can, whether he practiced that week or not.

"So, George is a guy that if he doesn't practice, he's still going to have an option to play in that game. As long as it's not risking him, we'll give that decision all the way up to kickoff, if need be."

Like Kittle, cornerback Josh Norman started practice by working on a side field. He suffered a lung contusion against the Green Bay Packers.

"Any time you get an injury like that when it's in your lungs area and stuff like that, when you do heal up, you've got to get your stamina back," Shanahan said. "You've got to get your breath back. Any time you mess with the lungs, it's a little bit scary for anybody, let alone an athlete, out there working hard and doing stuff like that."

Rookie running back Elijah Mitchell has practiced all week in a blue no-contact jersey. He sustained a shoulder injury during Week 2.

Below are the official injury reports for the 49ers and Seahawks, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff. Also included are Friday's practice participation reports.

49ers RB Elijah Mitchell feeling good physically as season two approaches

By Kirk Larrabee

After a rookie season full of bumps and bruises and a procedure on his knee in the spring, 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell seems to be in a good place as training camp proceeds. Mitchell set a franchise rushing record for a rookie player in 2021 (963 yards), even though injuries limited him to 11 games. In April, Mitchell had a clean-up procedure on his knee, but he's been participating in drills at training camp and has been moving in the right direction as he gets back to full health. "He has looked good," 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said Saturday,



49ers' Kyle Shanahan looking to ramp up practice workload for healthier Elijah Mitchell

Elijah Mitchell's 963 rushing yards last season set a San Francisco 49ers franchise record for the most by a rookie. But, how he accomplished the feat is even more impressive. Mitchell was never completely healthy for most of the season, dealing with shoulder, rib, finger, and knee injuries. In April, Mitchell underwent a clean-up procedure on his knee. Head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't about to throw a full workload on the second-year running back. He knows how important Mitchell is to the success of the upcoming season. "Elijah's just getting back healthy," Shanahan told reporters before Monday's practice. "We didn't get him in OTAs. He did a lot of good things last year, but he was also banged up throughout the year. So Elijah is just trying to get back to [100



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

By David Bonilla

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

By David Bonilla

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
