‘There’s been some good signs this week’: John Lynch provides an update on 49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo

Oct 8, 2020 at 4:39 PM--

Jimmy Garoppolo is working hard to get back on the football field this weekend against the Miami Dolphins. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback has participated in practice over the past two days, which bodes well for his chances of playing on Sunday.

Of course, the 49ers are being cautious with their franchise quarterback. This is a long season, and the team doesn't want to do anything that will hurt its chances in the long-run.

General manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Thursday and provided an update on Garoppolo. From what was said, it sounds like the quarterback's progress is headed in the right direction.

"I think Jimmy has done a really good job on this rehab, just like he does (with everything)," Lynch said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He's a very hard worker. He's been very intent on being out there as soon as possible. It's hurt him not to be out there. The good news is he's been out there. Now, we're through two days of practice, and he's been out there both days.

"I always think it's a positive step when you practice Wednesday, and you come back feeling a little better on Thursday. That's typically a good sign when you don't regress. Instead, you're making progress. And I think that was the case today."

Garoppolo has missed the last two games after sustaining an ankle injury against the New York Jets during a Week 2 matchup at MetLife Stadium. Nick Mullens started in Garoppolo's place during Week 3 against the New York Giants and played well. However, Sunday night was a different story as the ineffective Mullens was benched late in the game for C.J. Beathard.

"The other guys (Mullens and Beathard) are getting reps as well, so we'll see," Lynch continued. "Kyle (Shanahan) will make that decision, along with our medical staff, as to where exactly Jimmy is at. I think there's been a lot of positive signs, but you've got to make sure that everything's right.

"The Dolphins, all these teams, these are big men coming after the quarterback, and that's their job. So you have to be able to move, perform, and be capable of keeping yourself healthy. All those things will go into the evaluation, but there's been some good signs this week."

Rapoport weighs in on John Lynch's comments about Jimmy Garoppolo

Last week, John Lynch offered a vote of confidence in his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo. But it came after the general manager admitted that the San Francisco 49ers were scouting college quarterbacks. To many, the comments didn't mean much. Lynch says the 49ers always scout quarterbacks each year. One good fit for head coach Kyle Shanahan might be BYU's Zach Wilson. So, of course, VP of player personnel Adam Peters traveling to watch BYU made headlines. "Here's what I know about Jimmy Garoppolo, and I think I've been consistent," Lynch said last week during a KNBR interview. "We're a better football team when he's out there. We win a lot of games when he's out

49ers-Saints: Kyle Shanahan says RB JaMycal Hasty broke his collarbone, provides other injury updates

San Francisco 49ers running back JaMycal Hasty went down with an injury in the fourth quarter of today's loss to the New Orleans Saints. He later left for the locker room to be examined. The injury left the 49ers with Jerick McKinnon and Austin Walter as the only available running backs. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the game and said that Hasty suffered a broken collarbone. That means he'll probably miss a significant amount of time and will likely become yet another 49ers player to land on injured reserve. Shanahan is hoping to get running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) back after the bye week. "I'm hoping they are," Shanahan said of their chances to return in time for the 49ers' Week 12
