The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Super Bowl contest against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Practices are closed to the media, so there are no observation notes from the Thursday session. Tight end George Kittle and defensive tackle Arik Armstead were among the players who were limited participants for the second consecutive day.

During his press conference at the team hotel, head coach Kyle Shanahan said both players are expected to be full-go for Sunday's game.

When asked about the Thursday session, tackle Trent Williams said, "It was super intense. ... We were going pretty hard. But I just think it's the same way with anybody, right? You get to this day, we're practicing with a purpose at this point. We know what. We know what's at stake. We know what we've got a chance to do."

Below are Thursday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Chiefs, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

How George Kittle responded to a question about 49ers' Super Bowl strategy

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the "Dan Patrick Show" and was asked a question he had not encountered before: What would he change about the strategy the 49ers deployed in their Super Bowl loss against the Kansas City Chiefs? Kittle didn't immediately have an answer. However, after reflecting on the game, he prioritized better ball protection, feeling that might have made the difference. The fumble by running back Christian McCaffrey during the opening drive is the one play that sticks out in the tight end's mind. "I think if we could [avoid] that turnover, I think that's a difference," Kittle stated. It's worth noting that Kittle had an opportunity to recover the fumble, which would have kept the football in the 49ers'

The San Francisco 49ers didn't have to sit with the sting of February's heartbreaking Super Bowl defeat for too long. That's one of the benefits of playing deep into the postseason. Before you know it, you are back at work, preparing for the next season. Two months after the loss, the 49ers reported for the start of the offseason program, which concluded last week with a two-day minicamp. Most of the players and coaches have moved past that game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the memory of it serves as motivation for the 2024 season. That doesn't mean returning after the loss was easy. However, it's not the first time the 49ers have faced

George Kittle reveals how he 'hazed' 49ers QB Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla

George Kittle joined the "Dan Patrick Show" this week to discuss the upcoming fourth annual Tight End University gathering and all things San Francisco 49ers. During the conversation, host Dan Patrick asked if Kittle had hazed Brock Purdy during the quarterback's rookie year in 2022. Kittle delightfully admitted that he did pull a prank on Purdy. However, it might not be categorized as "hazing," as the quarterback was probably more mildly annoyed than embarrassed. "I put an Iowa football shirt in his locker," Kittle told Patrick. "It was his first day. He pulled it out, he turned around, looked right at me, and he goes, 'What's this doing in my locker?' I said, 'I have no idea, man.' The [equipment] guys here are crazy."
