49ers TE Garrett Celek has "a disc issue" in his back.

Celek should be considered week to week. He opened training camp on active/PUP and will miss at least one preseason game. Derek Carrier will continue to get the majority of reps as the No. 3 tight end.

49ers TE Garrett Celek left Sunday's Week 10 game against the Panthers in the first quarter with a hamstring injury and will not return.

Celek was quickly ruled out for the day, hinting at a serious pull. Brent's brother has one catch for 30 yards on the season.

CSN Bay Area believes 49ers TEs Garrett Celek and MarQueis Gray are competing for one roster spot.

Celek, the younger brother of Brent, earned a spot last year as an undrafted free agent following a strong training camp. Gray, a college quarterback, receiver, and running back, has the athleticism check mark in his favor, but we'd give the slight edge to Celek since he already knows the ins and outs of the offense.

49ers TE Garrett Celek is expected to get a lot of playing time on Sunday against the Cardinals if Vernon Davis (concussion) does not play.

Celek played 51 percent of the snaps last week in Seattle after Davis was knocked out of the game by Seahawks SS Kam Chancellor. He was targeted three times on Sunday night and caught two passes for 41 yards in the game. Delanie Walker would get the start at tight end, but "they’ll probably split a couple of things... it will definitely be a mix and match thing," says OC Greg Roman. Celek is the younger brother of Eagles TE Brent Celek. He made the team as an undrafted free agent out of Michigan State.

Undrafted free agent TE Garrett Celek earned a roster spot with the 49ers after "(coming) on strong" toward the end of camp.

Brent's brother, Celek had an injury riddled career at Michigan State, catching just 14 passes in four seasons. He made only five catches his final two years, but reeled in four balls for 63 yards during the preseason.

The San Francisco Chronicle believes undrafted 49ers rookie TE Garrett Celek has the talent to make a 53-man roster.

Garrett is the brother of Eagles TE Brent Celek. Reporter Kevin Lynch puts Celek's chances of cracking the 49ers' crowded tight end corps at 20-to-1, but believes a strong preseason could turn him into a possible waiver claim. Per Lynch, Celek "catches the ball so softly, you hardly ever hear (it) hit his hands," and also "seems to know his way around a pass route."
