49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle Expected To Miss Extended Time

This isn't good news for the 49ers

by

Monday brought some bad news for the San Francisco 49ers.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that both quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and All-Pro tight end George Kittle will be sidelined for multiple weeks.

Garoppolo is dealing with a high ankle sprain that could have him miss at least six weeks, while Kittle’s regular season is in jeopardy with a broken bone in his foot that’s expected to keep him out eight weeks, per Schefter.

The QB suffered the ankle sprain in Week 2 and appeared to reaggravate it during Sunday’s 37-27 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

As for Kittle, he was jumping to haul in a pass from backup quarterback Nick Mullens. The play was made, but the tight end went to the sideline with 12:36 to play.

San Francisco sits fourth in the NFC West with a 4-4 record.
