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.
