San Francisco’s star tight end George Kittle came up hobbling at the end of the first half after taking a hit from Cardinal’s safety Budda Baker. He somehow managed to make it through the entire game which ended in a close loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
ESPN insider Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday that Kittle won’t be practicing this week however he will still play against the Jets on Sunday.

Kittle suffered a knee strain which isn’t that serious compared to other injuries, however, it will take time to fully heal.
Sherman didn’t have a single catch and wasn’t targeted in the final two quarters after posting four catches for 44 yards on five targets prior to his injury.
Here’s a look at the 49ers’ other notable players who are injured and some newcomer news.Richard Sherman Will Be Sidelined
Cornerback Richard Sherman will also be sidelined for at least three weeks due to a leg injury.
This news is slightly out of the blue considering his name wasn’t mentioned after the game by head coach Kyle Shanahan. Sherman played 74 of 78 snaps in Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals.
The Pro-Bowler will likely miss games against the New York Jets, Giants and Philadelphia Eagles before he’s able to return.Deebo Samuel Set to Return Week 4
49ers wideout Deebo Samuel is set to return Week 4 when the 49ers play the Philadelphia Eagles.
Deebo suffered a foot fracture prior to training camp which takes a lot longer than a knee strain to come back from. Originally the 49ers weren’t allowed to put Deebo on the injured reserve list since it happened prior to camp but thanks to COVID-19 and the NFL’s flexibility this year, he was able to be listed on IR.
“Really hoping to get him back by the Eagles game, but we got to see how this heals and how it goes right now,” Shanahan said via NBC Sports.
Samuel was San Francisco’s most productive wide receiver as a rookie in 2019, catching 57 of his 81 targets for 802 yards and three touchdowns. He ended the season running the ball 14 times for 159 yards and had three touchdowns.49er’s Sign WR Mohamed Sanu
The Falcons signed ex-Falcons and Patriots wide reiver Mohamed Sanu earlier this week in response to some injuries.
Sanu was traded to New England in October of 2019.
Prior to heading to New England, Sanu spent four seasons in Atlanta. The Patriots reportedly had their eyes on Sanu for quite some time and even tried to steal him in the 2019 NFL draft.
Sanu got off to a nice start in New England, catching 10 passes for 81 yards and a touchdown in his second game. Returning a punt in his third game, Sanu sprained his ankle which seemed to slow him down the rest of the season. He underwent surgery over the offseason.
Sanu had a career-high 67 catches for the Falcons in 2017 and followed up with 66 catches for a career-best 838 yards last season.
Sanu is entering his eighth NFL season after spending his first four years with the Cincinnati Bengals. He has consistently been a No. 2 or No. 3 receiver for most of his career and averaged between 500 and 700 receiving yards with 4 to 5 touchdowns per season.

Los Angeles Clippers Teammates Not Happy With Paul George: REPORTS
The Los Angeles Clippers run in the Playoffs is an accurate depiction of expectation versus reality. Though fans wanted to witness an all-Los Angeles Western Conference Finals, the Clippers ruined those chances. Nobody expected them to lose that series after they gained a 3-1 lead against the Denver Nuggets in the Conference Semi-Finals.
The Nuggets made a solid comeback, which took the series to Game 7. In the showdown, the Nuggets thrashed the Clippers and instead became the underdogs that played the Lakers. However, Paul George still showcased some optimism about his team and had some words of wisdom for them before they entered the off-season.Paul George leaves teammates unhappy Credit: Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports
There were a lot of blame games after the embarrassing loss the Clippers faced at the hands of the Denver Nuggets. At first, coach Doc Rivers was ridiculed for the decisions he made during the series. Second, there was zero chemistry on the court between the players, and their key players did not stand up to their expectations. Although Kawhi Leonard did a decent job, Paul George was absent in his contribution to the scoreboard. He scored 10 points in the last game.
Other than that, George’s equation with his teammates was unstable, even off-court. Almost throughout the postseason, he and his teammates partook in verbal spats, primarily due to George’s poor performances and lack of accountability.
Nevertheless, George had some sound advice for his team after Game 7 loss. According to The Athletic, “George was preaching to teammates to remain committed, for all the players to return to the team this offseason and stay ready to make another run.”
This was not taken very well by the teammates because George was unable to convert his words into actions this season. “It was met by some eye rolls and bewilderment, sources said.”
What’s next for the Clippers after their shocking elimination?

— The Athletic NBA (@TheAthleticNBA) September 21, 2020Can the Clippers make a run for the title next season?
Well, Paul George seems to think so, and he has a theory why they didn’t make it far this time. “We can only get better the longer we stay together and the more we’re around each other,” George said after the game. “I think that’s really the tale of the tape of this season. We just didn’t have enough time together.”
Leaving the bubble may have dejected the title favorites, but this setback will not play as a barrier. They only plan to come back stronger and better prepared in the 2020-21 season.
