Sep 23, 2022 at 1:57 PM--



The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.

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. I thought he got better each day," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after Friday's practice.

Defensive lineman Arik Armstead sustained a foot injury during Week 2's win over the Seattle Seahawks. As a result, he did not practice this week and is listed as "questionable."


Along the offensive line, Colton McKivitz is dealing with an ankle injury and is also listed as "questionable." In addition, Daniel Brunskill won't make his 2022 season debut. He has been ruled out due to his hamstring injury.

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