San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today via a conference call. He was asked about the quarterback situation heading into Week 8 against the Chicago Bears and said that Jimmy Garoppolo would remain the team's starter. The good news is that Trey Lance might be available to back up Garoppolo. Shanahan expects the rookie to practice this week. "Coming back from the injury, they tell me he's on pace to be able to come out to practice on Wednesday," Shanahan said. "He might be a little limited at it, though, but that's what we're hoping for. "But in terms of deciding who's going at quarterback, that has to do with Jimmy's health. Jimmy, I wanted to see how his calf was. It was good today, and so he'll be

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo may have to worry about one less All-Pro pass rusher chasing him around the football field this season. Chicago Bears defender Khalil Mack is not expected to play during Sunday's game against the Niners, per NFL Media. The three-time first-team All-Pro and six-time Pro Bowl selection could land on injured reserve due to a foot injury.

"Yes, definitely [have to consider injured reserve]," Shanahan said. "Yeah, it's something we're worried about and concerned about, something we'll probably decide here in the next week." What are the 49ers' options with the interior of the defensive line without Kinlaw? "We've got [Kentavius] Street, we've got D.J. Jones, we've got Zach Kerr," Shanahan responded.

Kyle Shanahan provided several injury updates the day after the San Francisco 49ers lost 30-18 to the Indianapolis Colts. The good news is that cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (back) arrived at the team facility today feeling good and doing well. Shanahan said the 49ers will be without safety Jaquiski for a few weeks. He sustained a bone bruise in his knee. That explains why San Francisco signed safety Tony Jefferson to the practice squad today. Defensive end Dee Ford and linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair are both in the concussion protocol. Quarterback Trey Lance is expected to return to practice on Wednesday. However, he will likely be limited.
