George Kittle hurt his hamstring in practice last week, which forced him to miss the San Francisco 49ers' first game of the season. There was some hope that he'd be able to return to practice on Wednesday, but that didn't happen.

This potential setback puts Kittle's status for Week 2's NFC West rivalry game against the Seattle Seahawks into question.

George Kittle Injury Update

Kittle has consistently been one of the league's best tight ends since debuting in 2017 and entered 2022 expecting to be a crucial part of San Francisco's offense as a possible security blanket for Trey Lance.

The Seahawks struggled to contain the Denver Broncos' inferior tight ends during Week 1, so it would certainly be disappointing for Kittle (and his fantasy managers) if he's unable to suit up.

Unfortunately, Kittle not even being able to participate in simple drills this late in the week is not a great sign, as you'd assume the team would want to see him as a full participant before clearing him for Sunday's game. That being said, it is only Wednesday and he could still end up playing if he returns to practice during the next two days.

Even with Kittle's status in doubt, San Francisco is still a 9.5-point home favorite in Week 2 against Seattle according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
