Rapoport: Jimmy Garoppolo, George Kittle injuries ‘concerning,’ 49ers will learn more today

Nov 2, 2020 at 6:38 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers suffered several injuries during Sunday's 37-27 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network provided updates during Good Morning Football on two of the injured players — quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and tight end George Kittle.

Garoppolo left the game late in the third quarter with an ankle injury, while Kittle exited early in the fourth with a foot issue.

"They're both concerning," Rapoport said. "We'll see how serious Kittle's is but the fact that Jimmy Garoppolo continues to have issues with that ankle from the high-ankle sprain about a month or so ago, or a little more, is somewhat concerning for the 49ers.

"He left the game. Nick Mullens ended up cleaning up and finishing the game as Garoppolo headed to the locker room. But it really sounds like this is either a reaggravation of the ankle or just a sign that the ankle has just been hurting continuously. Clearly, he has not been quite the same player as he deals with this ankle injury."

Rapoport then went on to Kittle.

"He quickly headed to the locker room, had X-rays, which were negative, so that's good," Rapoport said. "(He's) going to have an MRI today just to determine how serious the sprain is and what the actual injury is. He missed a couple of games earlier in the season with an injury.

"He's extremely tough. If he can possibly get on the field, you know he will. But obviously, the MRI and test today loom very large for the Niners."

Rapoport: Brock Purdy injury robbed fans of competitive matchup, made 49ers-Eagles an unfair fight

The Philadelphia Eagles might have been the better team in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. But were they 31-7 better than the San Francisco 49ers? Probably not. Of course, we are all left wondering what might have happened had rookie quarterback Brock Purdy not been hurt in the first quarter. The 49ers felt they had prepared a great game plan for their bout with the Eagles. Unfortunately, that quickly got thrown out the window. "We were really excited for today, and we really wanted an opportunity to play that team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "They played great, and they did good things, but we wish we had a little bit better

Rapoport: If the 49ers want Tom Brady, it won't be cheap

Don't expect Tom Brady to offer his favorite childhood team, the San Francisco 49ers, up a discount should head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch be interested. Rookie Brock Purdy earned over $700,000 during this season. He's set to cost the 49ers nearly $900,000 in 2023, a drop in the bucket compared to the $30 million the Tampa Bay Buccaneers paid Brady this season, and they will be accounting for his salary for years to come, with the future Hall of Fame quarterback's salary cap hit spread out through 2026, per Spotrac. NFL insider Ian Rapoport believes an offseason quarterback decision may come down to Purdy versus Brady. A significant factor will be the cost of

49ers 'starving' for Super Bowl win, say George Kittle and Trent Williams

The San Francisco 49ers held a light practice on Wednesday. According to tight end George Kittle, you probably couldn't tell by how he and his teammates were flying around. The 49ers are eager to get to Sunday and are doing everything they can to ensure they are sufficiently prepared for their NFC Championship Game matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. One more win sets the stage. During the 2019 season, the 49ers just missed their opportunity to earn the franchise's sixth Lombardi trophy. Here they are again, on the doorstep of another chance to redeem that heartbreaking loss. "It's what you dreamt about since you were a kid," Kittle told reporters on Thursday. "You dream about it when you're in high school and college. You dream about it when you're in the
