George Kittle produces highlight-reel grab with one hand for 49ers
We have missed you, George Kittle!
The star tight end and former Iowa Hawkeye is one of the most versatile offensive players in the NFL today. Unfortunately, Kittle missed a big chunk of time due to injury this season, returning in Week 16 for San Francisco a week ago.
Now in Week 17, Kittle is wrapping up his fourth NFL season. Though his numbers are lower due to the missed time, he continues to be a force when on the field.
He put his pass-catching ability on display once again in the game against Seattle. After running his route, he reacted to a slightly off-target throw to snare it out of the air with one hand.
After making the tumbling grab, he was able to get up and scamper inside the 10-yard line since he was not touched down by contact. Here are a couple different angles of the play:

Since returning from the injured list, Kittle has had the opportunity to play with his college teammate and quarterback in CJ Beathard. Injuries have been unkind to San Francisco this season, but the two former Hawkeyes are certainly putting up some memorable performances to finish the season.
