Jimmy Garoppolo says ankle is ‘feeling really good’ ahead of 49ers-Dolphins

Oct 9, 2020 at 2:17 PM--

Jimmy Garoppolo spoke with reporters via Zoom shortly after head coach Kyle Shanahan officially announced that the quarterback would start on Sunday for the San Francisco 49ers' game against the Miami Dolphins. Garoppolo is returning from a high-ankle sprain that forced him to miss the last two games.

"The ankle's feeling really good right now," Garoppolo said. "I got the last couple of weeks off to get it right. The training staff, I tip my hat to those guys. They did a great job with me, just preparing me and everything. As far as getting out there, we've had the whole week to work on it, so it's feeling pretty good right now."

Garoppolo fought to keep playing during the 49ers' Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets after pushing through the injury for much of the first half. It was the team's medical staff that talked him into sitting out the second half.

The quarterback feels that decision, in the long run, was the smart one.

"I've had normal ankle sprains," Garoppolo shared. "I've never had a high-ankle sprain, so this is a first. And I kind of just thought it was going to be like a normal ankle sprain. I thought I could come back and just trying to get myself mentally prepared each week. I was kind of talking to myself, telling myself, 'Hey, I could play this week. I'll be alright.'

"It took a little time, but I'm glad to be back out there with the guys. It feels great."

Garoppolo made significant progress during practices this week, allowing him to return to the field.

"He did a good job," head coach Kyle Shanahan said today. "Each day, he got better. He never felt too sore the next day, so we needed to hear that today, and see him out there today, and we feel good to go, and he'll be starting Sunday."

The San Francisco 49ers lost their third consecutive game and sixth of the season. The team heads into its much-needed bye week, hoping to rest and recover — maybe get some players back on the other end. The latest loss came at the hands of the New Orleans Saints, who knocked off the visiting 49ers 27-13. After the game, reporters asked quarterback Nick Mullens about the locker room's mood as the season seemingly continues to spiral downward. "Right now, I'm really frustrated by the loss," Mullens said via Zoom. "I feel like we really could have done some special things out there. But we've got a resilient group. We've got a bye week. We've got six games left. And I feel like we can win games. We can win a lot of games. "We've just got to play

Starting next week, there will be many eyes on practice reports searching for information on several San Francisco 49ers players' statuses. Head coach Kyle Shanahan sounds optimistic that reinforcements for his injury-ravaged roster are on the way. Cornerback Richard Sherman (calf), wide receiver Deebo Samuel (hamstring), and running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) all have a good chance of returning to the lineup after the bye week, in time for the team's Week 12 road matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. Shanahan also hopes it will be in time, and enough of a boost, for his 49ers to go on a bit of a run through the final six regular-season games. Despite the 4-6 record and sitting in last place within the NFC West standings, San Francisco

San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh spoke with reporters before practice on Wednesday, as the team prepares for its game against the Los Angeles Rams. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. CB Jamar Taylor seemed to have a really good game against the Rams the last time you played them. I think Los Angeles Rams WR Cooper Kupp finished with 11 receiving yards. What did he, what did you guys as a whole do well in that game to sort of limit that Los Angeles Rams QB Jared Goff-Kupp connection? "You know, I thought our guys did a really nice job executing, playing within themselves, playing within the scheme and did a really nice job studying and
