Here are other San Francisco 49ers-related storylines that might interest you.

49ers bringing in potential Kyle Nelson replacements


Kyle Nelson struggled on Sunday during the 49ers' 36-9 win over the New York Giants. It didn't cost San Francisco the victory, but that isn't to say that such mistakes might not continue down the stretch.

Nelson's snaps were all over the place, and offensive lineman Justin Skule eventually replaced him. Could the 49ers be looking to replace the team's longest-tenured current player?

"I know how down Kyle is. I knew how down he was," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Monday. "He just came up to me today and just apologized and stuff. It was an unfortunate game for him. Kyle's had an unbelievable career. He's been a great 49er. He's been a great teammate.

"I've loved Kyle in these three years that I've gotten to know him, and he's been great for us. So, I know it was a really bad day.

"I just told him that, you know, fortunately, it didn't cost us anything. It wasn't an issue in the game because of how the rest of the game went. We were able to still get a W, but he understands this business. He understands how the league works, and we're going to bring in some guys tomorrow, work them out. We'll see how they look, and then we'll decide what's the best for us going forward."

'They don't make them any tougher than Jimmy': Baldy impressed by Garoppolo's gutsy 49ers-Rams performance

Early last week, no one was even sure if Jimmy Garoppolo would be suited up for Sunday's regular-season finale. The Los Angeles Rams had to figure the safe bet was a matchup against San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance. And, of course, head coach Kyle Shanahan was being coy about which quarterback he planned to start. Garoppolo played through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. After Sunday's thrilling playoff-clinching 27-24 overtime win, the quarterback admitted that he had a good feeling early in the week that he would be able to play. "Yeah, I think it was Tuesday we did the throwing session, tested it out, turned it into a game-like scenario," Garoppolo explained. "I kept being aware of it the whole week, but I had a pretty good
