George Kittle unexpectedly missed practice on Wednesday due to a sore ankle, but was able to get in two full practices on Thursday and Friday and was taken off the injury report. Kittle will play this Sunday against the packers in the NFC Championship game.

In his last matchup with the Packers, Kittle caught all six of his passes for 136 yards and a touchdown, as the 49ers demolished the Packers. Last week he had one of his slowest games in a while, as the team ran the ball 47 times, pushing Kittle into being an offensive lineman more than a receiver.

As long as Aaron Rodgers and company can put up any kind of fight this week, Kittle should be a big part of the offense once again and have a great chance to put up good numbers in a strong matchup.
