49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said "we'll see" in regards to George Kittle's status for Week 10 against the Seahawks.

Full quote

 

Quote

 

Injury report: Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle did not practice Thursday because of a knee and ankle injury he suffered in last week’s win at Arizona and his status for Monday’s game is in question.

Kittle had an MRI exam last week and Shanahan was asked if it was clean.

“I mean there’s issues,” Shanahan said. “He’s got things in his knee and ankle so we’ll see.”

Kittle was injured on the 49ers’ first offensive play and returned to catch six passes for 79 yards with a 30-yard touchdown before he exited in the fourth quarter. He played 51 of 74 snaps.

How is this the same game script as last week when last week was when he suffered the injury?

Referring to the coach talk leading up to the game - they were all 'we'll see' and 'we hope..' making it sound like a game time decision.

EDIT: Looking back, looks like the caution-speak from weeks prior were a groin injury he's been nursing. Still, they've been limiting his practice & using vague phrases for a few weeks now & he's played every time. Until I see him physically limited on the field or targets down signficantly, he's in my lineup.

He's a stud no doubt. A true tough guy.  I hope he is alright.  Sucks they are getting healthier overall and he is dealing with nagging injuries.  I think its gonna be hard for them to have a competitor like him sit out in a big division game.

This is a completely different injury

Big blow if he's out for an extended amount of time.

 

I don't think there's any indication of that at this point. Let's pump the brakes.

For me I had Hunter in my TE slot and Kittle in my flex. I just hope they make announcement before Monday so we can pivot to Sunday flex players if necessary.

Based on what the coach is saying, I'd say that's a possible indication.

Yes, I understand that. But he got it on the first series last week and played the rest of the game with it & put up a solid line. Then got tested afterward, no significant damage. Limited in practice. I get it.

 

My point is, with the groin/ankle injuries before & with this knee issue, they're using very similar vague phrases as to his availability so unless anything changes, I would expect him to play & play well against a Seattle defense that has been susceptible against TE's this year.

Now they are saying the MRI showed some stuff. Who the hell knows.

Dr. Chao said last week, he may have bone bruise which could still sideline him 2-3 weeks even if he played through the game. The swelling occurs later on. He's usually spot on. It sucks because the matchup is so juicy.

Fant will probably get you as many points as Kittle if he doesn’t play...

 

...considering it’s his Bye Week.

LOL...Gesicki it is!

If he is injured in any way, it would be smart of the coaches to let him rest this week.   The more I think about it, the less I see him playing on Monday.

Practically everyone is injured at this point in the year. I suspect it comes down to their assessment of chance of worsening the injury by playing.

If he was a DNP yesterday, that's a bad sign. 

Do the 49ers have a practice today, or are they slated to practice tomorrow since it's a MNF game? 

Either way, unless he has a dramatic recovery for the final practice before the week, I recommend looking for a streamer.

The same Dr. Chao that said James Connor wouldn't miss any time? Then doubled down during practice last week saying he would play. Then doubled down again (quadrupled down?) saying he would only miss that one game.

He's just making guesses, educated guesses maybe, but still guesses. Especially when he doesn't even know what the injury is, which is the case with Kittle.

Not sure if it's been reported or mentioned in this thread but I have a buddy who works within the 49ers org who told me he seen Kittle in a walking boot on Monday.

 

Not good.

It was just a precautionary resting of his foot because he knows how much a** it's going to kick in the second half of fantasy seasons.

...At least that's what I'm going to tell myself, since I had to ride the Hockenson/Graham/McDonald train to a glorious 17/179/1 over 8 weeks, and I don't think I can bear to go back.

Toolio is interesting ... remember him being somewhat RZ worthy with Atlanta - Shanny will scheme him in well 🤔

I think we are all better off firing up a Sunday TE and biting the bullet. Unless we get some positive Sunday morning news.

Agreed unfortunately...think I am going to roll with Gerald Everett this week over Kittle.  If Kittle plays and has a big game, I'll be bummed...however, I'd rather get someone with some upside for points instead of scrambling Monday night and picking between some poor options on either team.
