The Facts: Kittle was cleared by doctors to practice and after a week of knocking some rust off while playing scout team this week, he appears ready to play.
Diehards Line: Kittle is returning from a broken bone in his foot. But the return to practice doesn't necessarily put him on the field. One source told Rapoport simply, "A lot will go into that decision." In other words, If there is nothing to play for, is it worth putting Kittle on the field and possibly risking him beginning 2021 not completely healthy? The team knows Kittle is pushing to play. But it may hold him back to protect him from himself.
