The news on Monday regarding George Kittle’s leg injury tightly ended that it could put him out of play for the season and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed it was opinion. when he talks to reporters on Tuesday.
Shanahan said that Kittle had a fracture in his foot and he has been told that this will be an eight-week recovery time for a tight end. He also said that Kittle said he wanted to get back on the pitch before two months was up.
“I know it’s something in his feet,” Shanahan said. “It’s not showing up on their X-rays, but whether it’s on an MRI or CT scan or something with better resolution, it shows. It happened in a play. I think they told me eight weeks. Kittle says two, but that’s how he rolls. That’s why he’s going to join IR and if it’s better than what they’re saying, he’ll have a chance to come back this year, but eight weeks is eight. ”
Pre-injury means Kittle will have to be out of play for at least three weeks and it looks like the absence will last longer no matter how Kittle wants things to go.
