QB - SF - IR
Week 12 Outlook
49ers' QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is no longer in a walking boot and HC Kyle Shanahan is hopeful that he'll return to the starting lineup next month, per source.
Garoppolo suffered a high ankle sprain earlier in the season and re-aggravated it against the Seahawks in Week 8. Although dealing with injuries to key players at seemingly every position since the start of the 2020 season, Garoppolo has under-performed after leading the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2019. He will likely continue to miss time after the Week 11Bye but no longer wearing a walking boot is a sign Garoppolo is trending in the right direction.
QB Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be sidelined indefinitely due to a high-ankle sprain, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Garoppolo is getting multiple opinions on his ankle, but he is expected to miss at least six weeks and possibly longer if surgery is required. The 49ers feel he needs time to rest an injury that has bothered him since Week 2. Jimmy G can be dropped in re-draft formats. Nick Mullens will become the 49ers’ starting QB and is worth adding in all leagues.
Jimmy Garoppolo competed 11-of-16 passes for 84 yards and an interception during the 49ers' 27-37 loss to the Seahawks in Week 8.
Garoppolo struggled early on against a less than average Seattle defense. He took three sacks and tossed and interception before exiting with an ankle injury and the team should know more on his status following tests Monday. Consider Garoppolo questionable for a Week 9 prime time matchup against the Packers.
QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) exited Sunday’s Week 8 contest against the Seahawks early and is questionable to return.
Garoppolo was seen limping off the field with apparent ankle injury. Nick Mullens has entered the game in his place. Garoppolo threw for 84 yards and an interception before exiting. An update will be provided as more information comes in.
Jimmy Garoppolo completed 20-of-25 passes for 277 yards while tossing a pair of interceptions during the 49ers' 33-6 win over the Patriots.
He also added one rush for four yards on the ground in what was otherwise a disappointing fantasy performance from Garoppolo. Every touchdown for the 49ers' happened to come on the ground with Jeff Wilson Jr. scoring three times and fullback Kyle Juszczyk finding the end zone himself. To make matters worse, Deebo Samuel tweaked his hamstring and the team fears he will miss some time. Garoppolo will head into a Week 8 matchup against the Seahawks as a low-end QB1.
