George Kittle Injury Update is Great News for 49ers Against Seahawks
The San Francisco 49ers' offense is rolling to open the 2021 season, and Jimmy Garoppolo has looked great with 760 yards and 4 touchdowns to just 1 interception on 64-of-95 passing.
As usual, George Kittle has played a big role in Jimmy G's success throwing the football, and Kittle is second on the team in both receptions and receiving yards while averaging 10.4 yards per target — on pace to be a career high.
That's why it's such great news that Kittle is expected to play against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
Kittle missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday this week, which left him listed as questionable following a limited practice on Friday. Adam Schefter reports that Kittle will suit up on Sunday, however, which is huge for the Niners' offense.
In addition to being a key cog in the passing attack, Kittle is also one of the team's most valuable players in the running game. Pro Football Focus has graded Kittle as the 49ers' third-best run blocker (behind Trent Williams and Laken Tomlinson) so far in 2021.
With the good news, FanDuel Sportsbook's Week 4 odds have the 49ers as 2.5-point home favorites against the Seahawks.
