49ers’ George Kittle, Charvarius Ward on the mend

george kittle 49ers celebrate

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle and cornerback Charvarius Ward are both recovering from core muscle surgeries earlier this offseason.

General manager John Lynch confirmed Monday that both Pro Bowl selections are expected to be fully cleared in time for training camp.

Kittle, 30, caught 65 passes for 1,020 yards and six touchdowns in 16 starts in the 2023 regular season. He added eight catches for 112 yards and one TD in three playoff games for the NFC champions.

Ward, 27, set career highs with five interceptions and a league-leading 23 passes defensed in 17 starts during the regular season, adding 72 tackles. He added 10 tackles in three postseason games.

Kittle was named first-team All-Pro for the second time and made his fifth Pro Bowl last season. Ward earned his first Pro Bowl selection in his second season with the 49ers, who fell to his former team, the Kansas City Chiefs, in Super Bowl LVIII on Feb. 11.
