49ers 2019 Training Camp: Jimmy Garoppolo’s scramble highlights practice report roundup for July 29

Jul 29, 2019 at 4:42 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have completed their third of 11 training camp practices from Santa Clara. The Monday session lasted just over an hour and a half.

Quick Notes

The 49ers held a moment of silence before practice for the Gilroy shooting victims from Sunday's tragedy.

Monday's practice was the first in full pads.

Everyone is talking about Jimmy Garoppolo's big day. Not just throwing the football but scrambling. Yes, scrambling. That is certainly a good sign for the quarterback, who is coming off an ACL injury.

Veteran Joe Staley had the day off.

Cornerback Jason Verrett wore No. 34 during the first two practices of camp but debuted wearing No. 2 on Monday. Don't buy your custom Verrett jersey just yet. That will likely change again for the regular season.


The only player who missed practice, other than those on the PUP list, was guard Joshua Garnett, who dislocated his finger over the weekend.

Coach Kyle Shanahan provided a brief update on running back Jerick McKinnon, who started camp on PUP.

"I would think we would get him off PUP sooner than later," Shanahan said. "That doesn't mean you guys are going to see him out at practice right away."

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

By David Bonilla

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,

3 49ers training camp nuggets from ESPN

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

Stephen A. Smith says 49ers are champions right now if Aaron Rodgers, not Jimmy Garoppolo, were the QB

By David Bonilla
Jun 29, 2020

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
