Garoppolo, Kittle out for 49ers

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers will be without quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and All-Pro tight end George Kittle for an extended period after they got hurt against Seattle.

ESPN first reported the severity of the injuries, saying Garoppolo will miss at least six weeks with a high ankle sprain and Kittle will be out eight weeks with a broken bone in his foot. They mark the latest in a long line of injuries this season that have derailed the defending NFC champions, who are 4-4.
