49er’s quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo sure has missed George Kittle. In a post-practice interview on Wednesday, he described Kittle as having “fresh legs,” considering it’s his first practice since Week 4.

It is unclear if Kittle will be activated for the game (the 49er’s have until Saturday to do so) considering head coach Kyle Shanahan said they’re “not counting on it 100%.” More on Kittle’s injury and Injury Risk if activated.
