49ers Week 3 injury report: Arik Armstead questionable, George Kittle will play

The 49ers’ injury report for Week 3 was most notable for a name not included. Tight end George Kittle was a full participant in Friday’s practice and was not on the injury report, which indicates he’ll be a full go to make his 2022 debut Sunday night in Denver.

Defensive tackle Arik Armstead was a non-participant in practice again after injuring his foot in Week 2 and he showed up as questionable for Sunday.

TE Tyler Kroft (knee)

No surprises here. Brunskill hasn’t practiced since before the first preseason game. Davis-Price and Kroft are both expected to miss a few weeks following injuries they sustained in Week 2.

McKivitz showed up late in the week on the injury report. He was a non-participant Thursday and limited Friday. For Armstead he was a no-go all week which doesn’t bode well for his chances to play in Denver, though the fact he hasn’t been ruled out offers some optimism.
