According to David Lombardi on Twitter, head coach Kyle Shanahan hinted that San Francisco 49ers tight end Geroge Kittle may be held out of Week 3's contest due to concerns over the turf at MetLife Stadium. (David Lombardi on Twitter)
These concerns were echoed by the Pittsburgh Steelers, and have prompted both the NFL and the NFLPA to send experts to investigate. The 49ers will clearly not need Kittle to win against the New York Giants, which is something that may play a factor in any final decision. Kittle is trending toward being able to play this weekend, but we will need to wait for Friday's final injury report before learning whether or not Shanahan will risk his superstar in what should be an easy win.
