SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - The San Francisco 49ers will be without All-Pro tight end George Kittle this week because of a sprained left knee.
Coach Kyle Shanahan says Kittle won’t make the trip to face the New York Jets after injuring the knee during a season-opening loss to Arizona.
The Niners head into the game against the Jets without two of their most important players.
Cornerback Richard Sherman was placed on injured reserve with a strained calf. He will be replaced by Ahkello Witherspoon.
