Second update: Turns out Shanahan told Cardinals media Kittle is out. So, there you have it.

UPDATE: It turns out Shanahan simply said Kittle would not practice on Wednesday. Not that he would sit out Sunday.

The San Francisco 49ers ended practice a little over an hour ago and Kyle Shanahan provided some injury updates. The head coach ruled George Kittle out for Sunday’s game. He’s still battling an ankle/knee injury that prevented him from suiting up Monday night against the Seahawks. That’s a big loss, as Kittle dominated the Cardinals when the two teams faced a couple of weeks ago.

Joe Staley underwent surgery on his dislocated/fractured finger and is expected to miss a couple of games. Shanahan said that Justin Skule is “most likely” to replace Staley. Here is the injury report from Wednesday’s practice:
