George Kittle might miss Bears game with injury


George Kittle missed Wednesday's practice with the 49ers with a groin injury he suffered on Monday. It's possible he misses Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears

This could be a break for the Bears, considering Kittle is one of the 49ers best offensive weapons. He was named to his third career Pro-Bowl last season after he recorded 910 receiving yards and six touchdowns. 

It will be interesting to see how Eberflus and his "Tampa 2," 4-3 defense covers Kittle. He is a wild card when it comes to route running and the Bears have struggled to cover tight ends in the past.

On the flip side, Velus Jones Jr. (hamstring) and Dominique Robinson (knee) both landed on the Bears' injured list. Jones did not practice Wednesday and Robinson remained limited. 

The Bears will have a true test to their season Sunday when they square off against the 49ers -- with or without Kittle.
