The 49ers will try to get in the win column Sunday without their best player.
George Kittle was ruled out for their Week 2 game against the New York Jets with a knee sprain, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said.
Kittle will remain in the Bay Area for a couple of extra days of recovery before joining the team for the week in West Virginia as they prepare for their Week 3 game against the New York Giants.
The star tight end suffered the injury Sunday in the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals when he took a shot to the knee from safety Budda Baker before halftime.
Defensive end Dee Ford (neck) missed his second day of practice in a row and is questionable for the game.
Rookie wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and center Ben Garland, who missed the 49ers' Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals, are not listed on the injury report and will play in Sunday's game.
