49ers TE George Kittle (ankle) returned to a full practice on Thursday after sitting out on Wednesday. It's confirmation that he'll be ready for his usual role in this weekend's NFC Championship against the Packers.

49ers TE George Kittle was held out of Wednesday's practice with what's been reported as a sore ankle. This doesn't sound like something that'll impact his availability for this weekend's NFC Championship game vs. the Packers, but we'll continue to keep an eye on the situation.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is officially active for tonight’s game against the Packers. On top of the knee issue, he’ll reportedly be playing through a broken bone in his ankle that still hasn’t fully healed. We’ll see how he holds up.

49ers TE George Kittle broke a bone in his ankle during the Week 9 win over the Cardinals, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Kittle somehow finished out that game but has been sidelined the past 2 weeks. The ankle still isn't fully healed, according to Schefter, but Kittle is expected to play against the Packers tonight. It obviously adds risk to his Week 12 outlook. We'll see how he fares.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders (ribs), WR Deebo Samuel (shoulder) and TE George Kittle (knee) are expected to play against the Packers tonight. "Though the may work out pre-game" before a final decision is made, Rapoport adds. We won't get San Francisco's inactives until 7 pm ET tonight, so it'd be wise to have a backup plan in place for these guys. But all 3 can be penciled into fantasy lineups for now.

Matt Maiocco reports that the 49ers consider TE George Kittle a "game-time decision" for Sunday night's game against the Packers. Maiocco says that Kittle's goal "all along" has been to return for the Green Bay game. We'll keep an eye out for some indication early Sunday that the Niners expect him to play. If you're trying to wait on Kittle, though, you'll need to make sure you have insurance.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Packers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and has sounded optimistic about his availability. That late kickoff makes it a tricky situation for fantasy owners, though. Hopefully we get a Kittle update on Sunday morning.

WRs Emmanuel Sanders (ribs) and Deebo Samuel (shoulder), RB Matt Breida (ankle) and TE George Kittle (knee) all missed Wednesday's practice. HC Kyle Shanahan said it'll "come down to the wire" whether they can play against the Packers on Sunday night. Samuel seems most likely to play after returning from his injury last week. And we're betting on Sanders suiting up after playing 36 snaps last week. Breida and Kittle are truly questionable.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cardinals. TE Ross Dwelley ran a route on 84% of QB Jimmy Garoppolo's drop backs and garnered 7 targets with Kittle out last week. He's on the spot-start radar in today’s plus matchup.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers WR Emmanuel Sanders is expected to play today against the Cardinals. He missed practice all week with a rib injury that obviously adds risk. There's also plenty of upside to the matchup. WR Deebo Samuel remains a solid option even with Sanders in the lineup. The Niners will be without RB Matt Breida (ankle) and TE George Kittle (knee, ankle), each of whom entered the weekend doubtful.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is listed as doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. Fantasy owners should obviously plan on being without him this week. Kittle’s absence leaves Ross Dwelley as San Francisco’s likely pass-catching TE. He’s a fantasy flier in this plus matchup vs. Arizona’s league-worst TE defense.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that TE George Kittle (knee) won't play against the Cardinals this weekend. He misses a golden matchup -- and the early rule-out suggests that Kittle might miss time beyond Week 11. With Kittle sidelined last week, TE Ross Dwelley ran a route on 84% of QB Jimmy Garoppolo's drop backs and garnered 7 targets. He's on the spot-start radar in this week's plus matchup.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) remained sidelined on Wednesday. HC Kyle Shanahan has been non-committal on his availability for this weekend's game against the Cardinals. Check back tomorrow for another update -- but start lining up a backup plan for Week 11 fantasy lineups.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is inactive, as expected, for tonight's game against the Seahawks. Ross Dwelley is the best fantasy bet among 'Niners TEs but is just a cheap flier in DFS games.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee, ankle) missed practice all week and is listed as doubtful for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. Fantasy owners need to find a replacement. Ross Dwelley figures to step in as San Francisco's lead pass-catching TE but would be a desperation fantasy play.

Niners TE George Kittle's status is "in doubt" for Monday night's game against the Seahawks, according to NBC Sports' Matt Maiocco. Kittle is dealing with knee and ankle injuries that kept him out of Thursday and Friday practices. The fact that he couldn't practice after the long layoff doesn't bode well. Make sure you have an insurance policy as we await Kittle's game status on Saturday.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan was non-committal on TE George Kittle's availability for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. “I mean there’s issues,” Shanny said. “He’s got things in his knee and ankle so we’ll see.” Kittle didn't practice on Thursday. We'll get a couple more practice updates over the next 2 days and will hopefully have a good idea of his status by Sunday morning. Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister is a decent fallback plan if you wait on Kittle and he ends up inactive.
