49ers Tight End Ready To Go Ahead Of Week 3

The San Francisco 49ers have been dealing with injuries on the offensive side of the ball through two weeks of the season, with running back Elijah Mitchell as well as Trey Lance going down, but at this point, their All-Pro tight end still hasn't seen the field. After being inactive for two weeks, it appears though that George Kittle is on the verge of his season debut, as he was taken off the 49ers latest injury report.

This comes as a big boost for San Francisco, who now have the veteran Jimmy Garoppolo to lead them the rest of the way, and with veteran back Marlon Mack coming into the fold in place of Mitchell, the team may finally start hitting first gear. Their first game with Kittle back won't be an easy one, as they head to the Mile High to face the Denver Broncos who are also desperate for a win, but a weapon like this can be the thing that turns the 49ers season around.

With Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk on the outside, and Mitchell on the way back soon, this may be the best set of weapons Garoppolo has ever had, and if they can all stay healthy, this is certainly a genuine threat in the NFC.
