49ers activated TE George Kittle (calf, IR) from injured reserve.
Kittle was limited in practice throughout the week and is fully expected to return for his first game since Week 5. With Deebo Samuel (calf) truly questionable for Sunday, Kittle could be allotted more usage than the seven targets he averaged in four games prior to injury. He's a top-five tight end just in being available.
