Schefter: 49ers' George Kittle (ankle, knee) expected to play in Week 12

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle is reportedly expected to suit up on Sunday in the team's game against the Green Bay Packers, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

What It Means:

Kittle was questionable entering the weekend, but it seems that he's healthy enough to make his return to the field. That's a huge development for the 49ers, who have missed his presence over the middle during his two-game absence. Ross Dwelley, who had been filling in for Kittle, will likely return to a reserve role.

Our models project Kittle for 5.5 catches, 72.2 receiving yards, 0.4 touchdowns and 12.5 FanDuel points.
