The San Francisco 49ers announced that the team has opened the practice window for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. He has been on injured reserve due to a high-ankle sprain since November 5. The injury occurred during a Week 8 contest against the Seattle Seahawks.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke to reporters on Tuesday and said that Garoppolo is not expected to play on Saturday against the Arizona Cardinals.

The 49ers have also placed the following players on the reserve/COVID-19 list.


They join the following players already on the reserve/COVID-19 list.


The reserve/COVID-19 list has been created for a player who tests positive for COVID-19 or has been quarantined after having been in close contact with an infected person or persons. If a player falls into either of these categories, his club is required to immediately place the player on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Clubs are not permitted to comment on a player's medical status other than referring to the roster status and may not disclose whether the player is in quarantine or is positive for COVID-19.

Steve Young calls possibility of 49ers replacing Jimmy Garoppolo with a rookie 'intriguing'

Jimmy Garoppolo must be the favorite to be the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback after the Los Angeles Rams outbid everyone for Matthew Stafford, right? You still have names like Deshaun Watson, who may become available at some point. However, that acquisition is likely to require an unprecedented deal. Jason La Canfora recently explained why the 49ers might not last long in a bidding war against other teams. Then you have other names like Carson Wentz and Sam Darnold. In the minds of most Niner fans, neither feels like much of an upgrade over Garoppolo. You also have the upcoming draft. San Francisco could find an heir apparent there. Or maybe the



Peter King believes Jimmy Garoppolo will be the 49ers QB for Week 1

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the San Francisco 49ers quarterback situation this offseason. The team inquired about other options — like Matthew Stafford and Carson Wentz. It was reportedly "lukewarm" on adding Stafford. San Francisco was never going to surrender the draft capital that the Los Angeles Rams ended up giving to the Detroit Lions. And if you thought that cost was high, imagine what acquiring Deshaun Watson might cost. Jimmy Garoppolo remaining with the 49ers for at least the 2021 season remains a strong possibility. The team had an opportunity to upgrade to Tom Brady last offseason. Peter King of NBC Sports wonders if general manager John Lynch wishes he pushed harder for the move after watching Brady and the Buccaneers win Super Bowl



ESPN: It would take the 'Deshaun Watson effect' for the 49ers to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo is the most likely candidate to be San Francisco's starting quarterback in 2021, and it sounds like that's fine by the 49ers. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler recently reported that the Niners are among the teams that Deshaun Watson is "intrigued by." The quarterback wants out of Houston, but the Texans have no desire to trade him and are still hoping to reconcile their differences. Fowler added on SportsCenter this weekend that it would take a monumental opportunity, like adding Watson, for the 49ers to even consider moving on from Garoppolo. "I'm told San Fran is looking at potential upgrades, but they still like Jimmy G," Fowler said via



Florio predicts the 49ers will release Jimmy Garoppolo rather than trade or keep the QB

What will the San Francisco 49ers do with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo? The simple answer is that the team will retain his services, should a perceived upgrade not present itself. If a perceived upgrade is acquired, then the team will likely try to shop the quarterback. "Most presume he'll be traded," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk on Tuesday. "But here's the question: If the 49ers don't want to keep Garoppolo at the balance of his current contract, who would trade for the thing?" The New England Patriots would likely welcome back Garoppolo with open arms — for the right price. They have the cap space to absorb his salary.
