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-Cardinals Injury Report: Jimmy Garoppolo ruled out for Sunday; George Kittle doubtful

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo did not practice this week and has been ruled "out" for Sunday, which means fans will see rookie Trey Lance in his first career NFL start. Garoppolo suffered a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. The hope was that he would take part in today's practice and test his right leg. That didn't happen. Tight end George Kittle also did not practice this week and is listed as "doubtful." He is also dealing with a calf injury. It's the same injury that kept him out of practice for most of last week. However, Kittle was able to play this past weekend. We'll have to wait to see if

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Today's practice report looked very much like what head coach Kyle Shanahan previewed beforehand. There was no Jimmy Garoppolo, as the quarterback continues to recover from a calf injury. "I mean, it could go up to game time," Garoppolo said before practice about Sunday's game status. "We've done it before up to game time. And it's really just about getting the mental reps while I can out there today, see where I'm at tomorrow and everything." There was no Trent Williams, who, like Garoppolo, was injured this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. San Francisco continues to be cautious

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Things are starting to trend towards rookie quarterback Trey Lance making his first NFL start. Jimmy Garoppolo missed his second consecutive practice after suffering a calf injury during Week 4. That makes it unlikely the veteran starter will be healthy enough to lead the offense against the Cardinals. Tight end George Kittle also missed his second consecutive practice. He is dealing with the same calf injury that sidelined him for most of last week. However, he still played this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. If Lance does start, he will probably have left tackle Trent Williams helping keep

George Kittle was not able to practice last week. Despite being listed as "doubtful," there remained hope that the San Francisco 49ers tight end might be able to play this past Sunday in rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first NFL start. "Everything's focused on this Sunday, and George is working his tail off to be there," general manager John Lynch said last week. "If not, it's nice that we do have a bye, and we're hopeful that time can allow him to heal enough to really lick this thing and put it behind us so he can get back in there at practice." Kittle won't return after the bye against the Indianapolis Colts. He won't return for the next game,
