The San Francisco 49ers got off to an awful start against the Minnesota Vikings Monday night, and things were even worst for All-Pro tight end George Kittle. As the 49ers were attempting a comeback, Kittle took a shot in the groin and was not happy about.
On a second quarter play, 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy sailed a throw well over Kittle's head. As he rose to try and get it, Vikings safety Harrison Smith hit him below the belt. It was a rough scene. After the play Kittle was clearly in pain and could be seen saying, "Right in my dick!"
Here's a look:
Ouch. Not cool, Harrison, not cool at all man. There is a code and you broke it.
Obviously it wasn't intentional, but Smith put a shoulder right into Kittle's groin. That's going to hurt for a while, even if Kittle was wearing some form of protection.
