George Kittle set for full practice Thursday

49ers tight end George Kittle sat out of Wednesday’s practice with an ankle injury, but there’s no concern that he won’t be able to play against the Packers on Sunday.

That was the message from head coach Kyle Shanahan at Thursday’s press conference. Shanahan said he knew that Kittle’s ankle had some “wear and tear” after the win over the Vikings, but was surprised that he was sore enough to miss practice.

The time off seems to have done Kittle well because Shanahan said he would fully participate in Thursday’s practice. Shanahan added that he doesn’t believe the ankle issue will impact Kittle’s performance this weekend either.

Defensive end Dee Ford (quad, hamstring) was the only other 49ers player to miss practice Wednesday. Linebacker Kwon Alexander (pectoral) was limited.

  1. Yup we already knew this. The media and our legion of haters are reaching so hard for doom and gloom they’re sustaining dislocated shoulders in droves. The Niners will show up 100% healthy and 100% prepared come Sunday and we hope the packers plan on doing the same and it should be a great game.

    Go Niners!

  2. That is exactly what I posted yesterday when ppl said “ruh roh” on this site. You’d have to cut Kittles leg off for him not to play Sunday.
