49ers-Seahawks Injury Report: George Kittle ‘healthier’ but questionable for Sunday; Daniel Brunskill ruled out

Sep 16, 2022 at 1:58 PM--



The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Today's biggest injury-related news is the return of tight end George Kittle to practice. He had missed the past five practices, including two this week, after suffering a groin strain on September 5. Kittle missed the 49ers' Week 1 matchup against the Chicago Bears. While he is officially listed as "questionable" for Sunday, his return to practice bodes well for his chances of a return.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said there is more optimism regarding Kittle's chances of playing compared to last week. The team will continue to evaluate the situation and his status will be a game-time decision.

"He's healthier seven days later than he was last week when he was questionable [to play in Week 1]," Shanahan said.

Offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill has been ruled out for the second consecutive game. He is attempting to return from a hamstring injury suffered during the preseason.

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

49ers-Seahawks: Kyle Shanahan says George Kittle still has a chance to play, isn't optimistic about Daniel Brunskill

By David Bonilla

Neither tight end George Kittle nor offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill practiced on Thursday. That's not a good sign regarding their potential availability for Sunday's pivotal Week 2 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. Kittle has not practiced since suffering a groin strain on September 5. Brunskill suffered a hamstring injury during the 49ers' exhibition opener and hasn't practiced since. Neither suited up this past weekend against the Chicago Bears. "Neither of them were able to [practice] today," Shanahan said Thursday on KNBR. "I'm holding out more hope for George. We haven't ruled Brunskill out yet, I don't believe, but I'd be shocked if Brunskill made it. George still has a chance." The 49ers are coming off a

George Kittle has been cleared to play this weekend. The tight end will make his 2022 season debut after suffering a groin injury on September 5. "He's good to go.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 2 contest against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The 49ers hope to get their All-Pro tight end, George Kittle, back in time for Sunday's game. Kittle suffered a groin strain last week and missed the Week 1 contest against the Chicago Bears. "He's made progress, so hopefully, we'll have better luck this week," head coach Kyle Shanahan said before practice. Offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill continues to miss practices after suffering a setback with his hamstring injury last week. "We were thinking he'd be ready for Week 1, and he had that setback," Shanahan said. "So he'll be later in this week, but I'm not sure yet. [His chances of playing
