49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo confident he’ll be ‘full-go’ at the start of training camp

Jul 9, 2019 at 2:09 PM--

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo conducted a phone interview on Tuesday to promote his partnership with Men's Wearhouse and the company's annual suit drive. The conversation also included some football discussion.

The 49ers expect to have Garoppolo medically cleared to be a full participant in training camp, and the quarterback believes that will be the case. Players report to the team's headquarters on July 26 with the first practice taking place the next day.

Garoppolo received a significant workload on the practice field during the 49ers' offseason program, taking part in individual and seven-on-seven drills — and one 11-on-11 drill. The quarterback continues to feel good and is confident he will be "full-go" from the start of training camp.

"I really do," Garoppolo said during the call via Pro Football Talk. "The rehab process has gone really well. Knock on wood. We haven't had any setbacks. OTAs went about as well as I could have hoped for and now for training camp hopefully we'll be full-go with team drills and all that stuff. We're moving in the right direction. We've just got to keep going day by day and keep stacking them together. It's a long process, but we've come this far, so why stop now, right?"

Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL in his left knee during a Week 3 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs last season. The 49ers have been cautious with their franchise quarterback and may take some precautions during training camp, but Garoppolo hopes to be ready by that first practice.

"I'm sure hoping so," Garoppolo said. "The training staff, the coaches, we've kind of put together a plan and everything like that. We'll kind of assess the situation as we get closer to it."

Garoppolo plans to wear a knee brace during the 2019 season and possibly beyond, as he has been doing during the offseason program. For now, Garoppolo is planning on doing everything when he steps onto the practice field on July 27.

"I'm good to go. Finally," he added.

Schefter: 49ers, NFL teams may only be allowed 75 to 80 players at training camp

Adam Schefter of ESPN is reporting that NFL teams may be required to limit the number of players who participate in training camps across the league when they begin later this month. At least, they are scheduled to start later this month. That would mean as many as 10 to 15 players from each team's 90-player roster might have to sit out meetings and on-field work. The idea is, of course, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic as the NFL continues to search for ways to increase the safety of its players and the chances of an uninterrupted season. "One source said he believed it's likely that teams will go to camp with 80-man rosters," writes Schefter,

ESPN recently took a look at all 32 NFL teams and named three training camp "nuggets" for each. What did that include for the San Francisco 49ers? It all starts with the Super Bowl LIV loss in February to the Kansas City Chiefs. ESPN notes that San Francisco will try to become the third NFC team to lose the Super Bowl and return to the big game the next season. Only the 1971 Dallas Cowboys and the 1974 Vikings have accomplished that among the conference teams. Dallas ended up winning Super Bowl VI against the Miami Dolphins while Minnesota lost Super Bowl IX to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Writes ESPN: "The past few teams

The Aaron Rodgers to San Francisco 49ers talk is starting early. Maybe nearly a year early. First, Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk explored the idea of the future Hall of Famer joining his hometown team and the organization that passed him up in 2005 for Alex Smith. Now, ESPN's First Take is joining the discussion. Rodgers' days in Green Bay may be numbered after the team selected Jordan Love in the first round of April's draft. After enduring over a month of discussion earlier this offseason surrounding Tom Brady potentially replacing Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco, it seems like fans might have to put up with talk about the next possible Garoppolo replacement. That's what analyst Domonique Foxworth, along with ESPN personality Stephen
