After quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was forced to leave the 49ers' game Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks with an injury, his favorite target also exited the game with a foot injury.
George Kittle went to the 49ers' locker room in the fourth quarter and did not return in the eventual 37-27 loss to the Seahawks. Coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after the game that X-rays showed no fracture on Kittle's foot, but the tight end will be getting an MRI on Monday.
Kittle wasn't much of a factor in Sunday's game prior to his injury, catching two of his four targets for 39 yards.
He left the game after making a remarkable catch on a throw from backup QB Nick Mullens, who replaced Garoppolo just a few plays prior.
Given the 49ers have a quick turnaround before playing the Green Bay Packers on "Thursday Night Football" in Week 9, it would not be a surprise if Kittle misses some time.
