Celek’s activation is an ominous sign for George Kittle’s potential availability for tonight's contest. Kittle was able to play through the injury in Week 9, and head coach Kyle Shanahan offered that almost any other player with the same ailments would have already been ruled out. While tonight's contest may be viewed as something of a must win with the Seahawks breathing down their necks in the standings, risking Kittle’s availability for the rest of the season for a chance to win one game is not in the team's best interests. Celek will likely function as emergency depth behind Ross Dwelley and Levine Toiolo if Kittle is ruled out.
