49ers-Dolphins Injury Report: Garoppolo, Mostert, Ward practice; Deebo misses practice due to illness

Oct 8, 2020 at 2:46 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 5 contest against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and running back Raheem Mostert (knee) were on the practice field for the second consecutive day. Safety Jimmie Ward returned after having some tests done on his wrist and missing Wednesday's practice.

Garoppolo has missed the last two games after suffering an ankle injury during Week 2 against the New York Jets. The 49ers hope to get him back in the lineup soon but will be cautious with his return.

"Hopefully, we get Jimmy back," general manager John Lynch said this week. "His ankle is responding well. You have to kind of think big-picture on these decisions."


Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley remains in the concussion protocol and did not practice while Ahkello Witherspoon reportedly looks good as he aims to return from a hamstring injury.


Wide receiver Deebo Samuel missed practice due to an illness. This past weekend was his first game back after suffering a Jones fracture in June.

Below are Thursday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Dolphins, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

Fantasy Football Alert: Kyle Juszczyk says 49ers have 'big plans' for Raheem Mostert

Injuries limited San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert to eight games last season. Of course, injuries devastated the entire roster, resulting in a disappointing six-win campaign. Some better luck on the injury front could result in a quick turnaround for Mostert and his Niners. That's what recently re-signed fullback Kyle Juszczyk expects. In fact, the 49ers' offensive weapon expects big things in 2021 for his running back teammate. Much of that has to do with play-caller Kyle Shanahan and how the head coach takes advantage of each player's strengths. Juszczyk used wide receiver Deebo Samuel as an example. In each game, Shanahan installs two or three plays that can take advantage of the young wideout's physicality. "He knows that he just needs to get



Fowler: 49ers' draft moves could change plans for Jimmy Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is set to earn about $25 million this year. Whomever they pick at No. 3 overall will have a cap hit of about $6.2 million in 2021, per OverTheCap.com. If the gap between the two players isn't seen as great—and a lot of that may depend on actually getting the rookie into the building and seeing how fast he can progress—that could accelerate the plan to part ways with Garoppolo. Maybe something happens before the draft. Maybe it happens during, after, or even next year. For now, the 49ers sound comfortable keeping Garoppolo around for another season while their rookie quarterback sits and learns. It's a prudent plan considering the roster is built to compete for a championship right now. On Sunday, ESPN's



Peter King weighs in on Jimmy Garoppolo's status with 49ers, future with Patriots

NBC Sports' Peter King weighed in on Jimmy Garoppolo, his status with the San Francisco 49ers, and his potential future with the New England Patriots, the team the quarterback spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with. First, the 49ers. Count King among those who aren't confident that San Francisco will trade Garoppolo this year. The team has publicly stated that it plans to enter Week 1 with Garoppolo as the starter. Nothing the 49ers do at No. 3 may change that. Head coach Kyle Shanahan seems content with letting a rookie sit and learn for a year, which will be extremely beneficial considering his offense's complexity. Said general manager John Lynch last week:



Jason Verrett, teammates trust Jimmy Garoppolo, but believe in 49ers front office

Unless you stay off of social media, as Jimmy Garoppolo does, it's tough to escape all of the speculation surrounding the San Francisco 49ers quarterback's future. Garoppolo remains the favorite to be the Week 1 starter. Beyond 2021, though, who knows? San Francisco recently traded away several valuable draft picks, including multiple first-rounders, to move up to the No. 3 spot for the opportunity to acquire a quarterback of the future. The team obviously sees a potential upgrade in at least one option between Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Mac Jones. However, Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for this season, allowing a rookie the luxury of sitting and learning behind a veteran. Cornerback Jason Verrett spoke with reporters today. While he plays on the
