Jared Goff fully practices, likely to start against 49ers

Dec 21, 2016 at 1:38 PM--


According to the Los Angeles Rams, QB Jared Goff was a full participant in practice today. That opens the door for the rookie, selected first overall, to start on Saturday against the San Francisco 49ers.

Goff suffered his concussion on a hit from Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman last Thursday. The quarterback has lost all five of his starts since replacing Case Keenum. Barring a setback, Goff should be the quarterback that the 49ers face on their trip south to Los Angeles. Should he be unable to play, the Rams might start QB Sean Mannion ahead of Keenum.

49ers head coach Chip Kelly spoke a little bit about preparing for Goff while answering questions from the media this morning. "You have to be prepared for both him and Case [Keenum] and there's rumors that [Sean] Mannion may play," Kelly said. "So, you've got to be ready for all of them. Their offense hasn't changed drastically from Case to Jared. It's still their offense. The back is the feature player for them. [Todd] Gurley is as talented a guy as we'll face. He'll be the main stop.

"You've got to stop the run against these guys and then obviously Jared like any quarterback, and I've mentioned this before, the experience you get in game reps as a quarterback is totally different than practice reps because in practice you don't get hit and in a game you do get hit.

"You've seen him get better as the more snaps he's played. He throws a nice ball. It's catchable. He's very accurate when he has a chance to get his feet set. So, obviously, we need to disrupt the timing of the routes and try to get some pressure on him. When you give him time to throw, he's a very accurate thrower."

Goff has completed 54.7 percent of his passes during his starts and has a passer rating of 65.7. He has thrown four touchdowns and five interceptions.

McShay believes Trey Lance will start more games for the 49ers in 2021 than Jimmy Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York recently spoke with NBC Sports Bay Area and called the team's decision to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo while drafting his replacement an investment in Trey Lance's future. Basically, that means York had no problem holding onto the veteran quarterback and his hefty salary if it means affording Lance the luxury of sitting, learning, and eventually being better for it. "So, for us, if you invest $25 (million) or $50 million into your rookie to get them ready, then to me, we're investing in the long-term future of our team," York told Matt Maiocco. "And you never want to put somebody out there, especially a guy who you heard the sort of parlance



ESPN's Barnwell predicts when Trey Lance will start for the 49ers

There are two best-case scenarios for the San Francisco 49ers. The first is the plan with which they are entering the 2021 season. Jimmy Garoppolo is the Week 1 starter at quarterback, leads the championship-caliber roster all season, and rookie Trey Lance can sit and learn for a year. The second is that Lance asserts himself as a realistic starting quarterback in training camp and forces the 49ers into a difficult decision. Two starting-quality quarterbacks are a nice dilemma to have for any NFL team. San Francisco will have options, too. It can hold onto Garoppolo, knowing that he has a solid backup should he suffer another in-season injury. Of course, that would mean paying him to once again be on the sidelines or watching from a luxury box. The veteran quarterback is due
