Kittle Cleared; Armstead, McKivitz Questionable in 49ers Friday Injury Report 

We are officially two days out from tight end George Kittle's 2022 regular season debut. Per head coach Kyle Shanahan, Kittle is "good to go," for "Sunday Night Football" against the Denver Broncos and fell off the San Francisco 49ers Friday injury report. The veteran tight end was dealing with a lingering groin injury he suffered in the days leading up to the season opener against the Chicago Bears.

"He means a ton in both (passing and blocking game)," Shanahan said. "Kittle has been one of our better players here over the years. When he is out there, he is a huge deal for us, and we have to get him back into football shape, just because he hasn't played in a little bit. He helps us in every facet of the game."

Offensive lineman Colton McKivitz (ankle) and defensive lineman Arik Armstead (foot) are both questionable for Sunday. Shanahan confirmed that Armstead has not practiced at all this week. McKivitz was a limited participant in Friday's practice.
