The injury bug continues to be a problem for the San Francisco 49ers to start the 2021 season. The latest name on the list is tight end George Kittle, who's missed practice the past two days due to calf soreness.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan had a concerning update on his starting TE ahead of the team's Week 4 game.

Shanahan said that it's "not guaranteed" Kittle plays on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. The tight end's calf bothering him in walkthroughs is a huge worry regarding how he would hold up in an actual game.

Losing Kittle for this divisional showdown would be a huge blow to a Niners offense that's already hurting. The fifth-year pro is coming off of his strongest performance of the season in Week 3, racking up 7 caches for 92 yards.

It's possible Kittle may not have a clear status until gameday, which does nothing to quell the fears of fans for now.

San Francisco heads into its clash against Seattle as 3-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
