49ers’ George Kittle expected to play vs. Seahawks; Elijah Mitchell out

Oct 3, 2021 at 7:47 AM--


"I mean, I'm going to do everything I can to be on the field on Sunday," George Kittle told reporters on Friday. "And then, if my body says I can go, I'll be out there."

It sounds like we can expect the San Francisco 49ers star tight end to be out there for the team's first divisional matchup of the season. Despite being listed as "questionable" for the game, per multiple reports, Kittle is expected to be on the field at Levi's Stadium this afternoon when the Niners host the Seattle Seahawks.

"While officially a game-time decision, SF has optimism that Kittle will be correct," notes Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.


Kittle has been dealing with a calf injury, missed two practices this week, but was able to get some limited work in on Friday.

Another player listed as "questionable" on Friday's game status report was running back Elijah Mitchell. He won't play in the NFC West clash, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. He is dealing with a shoulder injury suffered during Week 2.


The 49ers and Seahawks kick off this afternoon at 1:05 p.m. PT.

San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Elijah Mitchell is officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is still hoping that the rookie could play, but the odds are against him. Mitchell suffered a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. The next day, he underwent a procedure to repair the damage. As a result, Mitchell has not practiced at all this week. The coach had hoped the team's leading rusher would get some work in during the three practices, but that never happened. "It's just how he feels with it," Shanahan explained. "And we thought it would be a little further along now. But obviously, it isn't. That's why he couldn't go today. We're holding out hope because
