49ers' George Kittle: Ruled out against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle (leg) has been ruled out for 49ers' Week 10 matchup with the Giants, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Kittle was forced to leave Sunday's loss to the Cardinals with a leg injury, but he promptly returned to action and finished with three receptions (five targets) for 27 yards. However, when Kittle was evaluated after the game, the team determined his injury was a little more serious than initially believed. The team's decision to rule Kittle out far in advance of the Week 10 game suggests he could be at risk of missing additional time, which would open up more snaps at tight end for Garrett Celek, who is likely to pick up the start against the Giants.

49ers' George Kittle: Returns to game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle (leg) returned to Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.

No. 3 tight end Cole Hikutini went down with a knee injury a few plays after Kittle, so his return was timely. Kittle will slot back into the top tight end role with rookie C.J. Beathard under center for the 49ers.

49ers' George Kittle: Hurts leg Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle suffered a leg injury Sunday against the Cardinals and is questionable to return.

The rookie fifth-round pick is listed as the 49ers' No. 1 tight end, but he's only posted one touchdown, despite being targeted 10 times in the red zone through eight game. Expect Garrett Celek to see an increase in his snaps while Kittle sits out.

49ers' George Kittle: Non-factor in passing game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle caught two passes (four targets) for 22 yards in Sunday's 33-10 loss to the Eagles.

The rookie tight end was asked to stay back and block more often than not against an aggresive Philadelphia defensive front, and that gameplan was emphasized after starting tackles Joe Staley (eye) and Garry Gilliam (knee) were knocked out of the contest. Both of Kittle's catches came on check and releases, and that kind of utilization will severely limit his value going forward if the 49ers' offensive line continues to struggle protecting their rookie quarterback.

49ers' George Kittle: Targeted just twice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kittle was targeted twice and came away from Sunday's 40-10 loss to Dallas with a 16-yard catch.

So much for the Hawkeye connection. Kittle was targeted just twice by his former college teammate, C.J. Beathard, on Sunday after 17 total targets in the prior two weeks. Nothing much went right on Sunday for the 49ers, so it's hard to read too much into the results. The big early deficit led the 49ers to play Kittle for just 31 offensive snaps, less than half of the team's total. Four receivers, meanwhile, saw at least 30 offensive snaps. Better results may be to come. He next faces an Eagles team that just lost linebacker Jordan Hicks, its primary cover man against opponents' top tight end.
