OLB Aaron Lynch was the only San Francisco 49ers player listed as Out on the team's official Friday injury report. He practiced this week but was limited and seen limping badly on his injured ankle.

WR Torrey Smith returned to practice on Thursday after missing the previous two days. He practiced Friday as well. Smith injured his back during a play in the fourth quarter against the Arizona Cardinals. He and CB Rashard Robinson are listed as Questionable.

ESPN's Jordan Schultz recently reported that the New England Patriots are no longer pursuing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Of course, watching John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan being chatty with Bill Belichick and Josh McDaniel at Alabama's pro day on Tuesday is enough to create more speculation. What were they discussing? Was it where they got their morning coffee? Was Belichick sharing where to obtain golfing attire? Did Garoppolo's name come up at any point during the socialization? ESPN's Dianna Russini doesn't believe that Belichick and company have given up hope of reuniting with Garoppolo in New England, especially after San Francisco

Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:



"The more mad Jimmy gets, usually, the better he gets": 49ers' Shanahan and Lynch discuss Garoppolo's future

The San Francisco 49ers shocked the NFL world by pulling off a massive trade moving from the No. 12 overall pick up to No. 3 in next month's NFL Draft. It is clear that the team is targeting a quarterback to—at some point—replace current starter Jimmy Garoppolo. It remains a mystery who that might be. Up until that point, team brass had verbally committed to Garoppolo being the quarterback in 2021, with the caveat that NFL rosters are always fluid. Garoppolo could very well remain with the 49ers through the upcoming season. That's the impression that head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch gave while speaking with reporters on Monday. The two tried to keep Garoppolo abreast of the situation leading to the franchise- and draft-altering
