George Kittle, a great tight end for the San Francisco 49ers, recently received hopeful injury news.

In preparation for the Niners' Week 2 game against the Seattle Seahawks, the three-time Pro Bowler took part in Friday's practise session.

Since suffering a groyne injury in the preseason, he had not participated in practise.

Kittle has been elevated to questionable for Sunday's game by head coach Kyle Shanahan, who claimed he looked "fantastic."

The week before the Niners' season opener against the Chicago Bears, Kittle sustained a groyne injury during a light practise session.

His injury was initially expected to heal by Week 1, but he was unable to do so.

Kittle is on the right track to play in the Niners' home opener on Sunday according to this optimistic injury status report.

For a club trying to recover from a poor start in Week 1, Kittle's return would be a huge help.

George Krieger Kittle is a tight end with the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League in American football.
