49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo takes first 11-on-11 snap of the offseason, then leads touchdown drive

Jun 12, 2019 at 12:06 PM--


Jimmy Garoppolo has been held out of 11-on-11 team drills up to this point. That changed on Wednesday. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has been limited as he continues to recover from the ACL injury he suffered in late-September. He was not expected to take part in 11-on-11 drills until training camp.

Multiple reporters observed Garoppolo take a rep during team drills on Wednesday, completing a pass to second-year wide receiver Dante Pettis. Then the quarterback continued the drive minus the defensive linemen (11-on-7), moved the offense down the field, and threw a touchdown pass to Pettis.

The defensive linemen left the field because Shanahan got a bit anxious after watching them rush his franchise quarterback.

"I told the D-line, 'Just stand there and put your hands up. No one's allowed to rush,'" Shanahan said. "The animals that they are and why we love them, they couldn't help it. I saw it, so just stopped it. I wasn't going to mess with it."

Shanahan continued, "I thought there was a huge misunderstanding. They said they were just putting their hands up. I thought it looked a little different. So we ended it pretty quick."

Wednesday's practice was the last of this week's minicamp and the last of the offseason program. The players will receive six weeks off before they are expected to report to training camp in late-July.

The four San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks will report to the team's facility today, along with rookies and any players rehabbing injuries. The rest of the roster will report on Tuesday, July 28. Then they will leave for two days. Don't expect any big features showing players interacting or even speaking with coaches coming out of the 49ers' official site over the next few days. Players are just arriving to undergo COVID-19 testing. Then they will self-quarantine for two days, either at home or the team hotel, and then return for the second round of testing. Should each test return negative, that player will be allowed into the building. And no, that's not when the fun begins. NFL insider Ian Rapoport laid out the league's ramp-up

For third-straight year, Jimmy Garoppolo named as 49ers player who will have biggest impact on season

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo may have endured a lot of criticism this offseason — you know, if he listened to the outside noise. He doesn't. Garoppolo seems focused on doing what he needs to do to be ready for the 2020 season rather than dwell on February's Super Bowl collapse. "You haven't seen any crazy media lash-outs from him, or him be down on himself, or anything like that," fullback Kyle Juszczyk said in May. "It's just Jim. He comes to work every day, works his butt off, has the same demeanor every day. The outside noise, it truly doesn't seem to affect him." That's good because there is a lot of pressure on Garoppolo. He'll be

San Francisco 49ers George Kittle and Jimmy Garoppolo were recently seen at Oracle Park, the home turf of Major League Baseball's Giants. No, he wasn't privy to some behind-the-scenes look at a game or batting practice for local stars. The Giants aren't even in town. They are in Los Angeles. It wasn't even the real Garoppolo and Kittle. The two were represented by cardboard cutouts, which will become permanent residents for this season, replacing fans in Oracle Park's seats. Garoppolo's and Kittle's were shown off among a group of other Bay Area celebrities. Between the two is the cutout of rapper E-40. Kittle made the following comment via twitter regarding his proximity to the 49ers quarterback (h/t to
