Kyle Shanahan explains why C.J. Beathard received most of the 49ers practice reps this week

Oct 9, 2020 at 12:13 PM--

Head coach Kyle Shanahan is hopeful he'll have Jimmy Garoppolo in there at quarterback when the San Francisco 49ers take on the Miami Dolphins at Levi's Stadium this weekend.

"It's looking like that's going to be the case," Shanahan said this morning on KNBR. "I definitely can't make that decision just off yesterday. ... Thursday was a lot better than Wednesday. If today continues that way, then I think it will be looking pretty good."

If Garoppolo can't play, it will be either Nick Mullens or C.J. Beathard. Shanahan isn't revealing which, though, because he doesn't want to give the Dolphins any advantage. The 49ers, after all, are sitting at 2-2 and looking to earn their first home win of the season.

Shanahan did share which quarterback has gotten most of the reps in practice this week, but explains why you shouldn't read too much into it.

"We're [hoping] for Jimmy, as you know that," Shanahan said. "C.J. got most of the reps this week, just because Nick's gotten most of them the last three weeks. But both of those guys are going to be capable to go. Excited, if Jimmy doesn't go, for you guys to find out (who will start) on Sunday."

The 49ers have one more full practice scheduled for today. Official team injury and practice participation reports are due out in a couple of hours.

Kyle Shanahan explains failed fourth down conversion call in 49ers loss to Saints

Had a few key plays gone differently in their 27-13 Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints, perhaps the San Francisco 49ers might be traveling back to the Bay Area with an upset win in their pocket and a much different vibe heading into their bye week. But, unfortunately, the 49ers had too many plays go in the wrong direction against the Saints that altogether eventually wound up costing them the game. One such play was a failed fourth-down conversion late in the second quarter that saw running back Jerick McKinnon stuffed for a two-yard loss. The play came on a fourth-and-one at the Saints' 41-yard line and followed an incomplete pass attempt from Nick Mullens to Brandon Aiyuk on the play before. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan explained his thought

49ers' Kyle Shanahan is Shrinking in the Spotlight

Enough Excuses. On Sunday, the 49ers suffered their 3rd straight blowout loss, dropping them to 4-6 and continuing their free-fall to irrelevancy. It was a game they could have won, the opportunities were there, but the 49ers just couldn't muster up more than 13 points of offense. Now, more than ever, the 49ers' 2020 season seems to be completely lost. While many look for a direction to point the finger, and there are a few obvious areas, start with the head coach. Sure, there have been a plethora of injuries, but one side of the ball has been handling those injuries much better than the other. Robert Saleh's defensive unit has been depleted by the injury bug, losing Dee Ford, Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman, Solomon Thomas, K'waun Williams, Jaquiski Tartt and other significant
