George Kittle ruled out against Seattle Seahawks – USA TODAY

The 49ers have officially ruled out tight end George Kittle from their home opener vs. the Seattle Seahawks. He’s one of five players who won’t suit up Sunday for San Francisco.
Kittle has been dealing with a groin injury the last two weeks and didn’t play in the season opener in Chicago. Brunskill was listed as out on the official injury report Friday while nursing a hamstring injury he’s had since the preseason opener.
Earlier this week, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that Kittle had made strides in recovering from the injury
“He’s made a lot of progress,” Shanahan said. “Hopefully, we’ll have better luck this week.”
Kittle was able to log a limited practice on Friday after not practicing to start the week.
The Pro Bowl tight end enters his sixth season with the 49ers. He hauled in 71 receptions for 910 yards and six touchdowns in 2021. 
49ers rookie running back Tyrion Davis-Price will make his NFL debut against the Seahawks. He was inactive in Week 1, but this week he’ll be in the backfield and should get some burn in the backfield alongside Jeff Wilson Jr. and undrafted rookie Jordan Mason. Another rookie, WR Danny Gray, will also debut after getting a healthy scratch in Chicago.
