Kittle (ankle), DE Ford (neck) miss practice for 49ers

Tight end George Kittle (ankle) and defensive end Dee Ford (neck) did not practice Thursday for the San Francisco 49ers.

Kittle missed practice for the second consecutive day as did wide receiver Richie James (hamstring). Coach Kyle Shanahan has said Kittle does not need to practice in order to play during Week 2 against the New York Jets on Sunday.

Ford played Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals and was a full participant on Wednesday. However, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh said Thursday he wasn’t too concerned.

The 49ers’ secondary is ravaged by injuries as cornerback Jason Verrett (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, a day after Richard Sherman was put on injured reserve. Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion protocol) was upgraded to limited participant. He would replace Sherman if he’s able to play Sunday.

Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk and center Ben Garland were both full participants in Thursday’s practice. Both players missed Week 1.
