Kyle Shanahan expects Jimmy Garoppolo to be 100 percent for 49ers-Colts, hopes Trent Williams can practice Friday

Oct 21, 2021 at 3:27 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this afternoon and provided two key injury updates. One was on his starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, who is returning from a calf injury suffered on October 3. The injury forced him to miss Week 5, but the coach sounds more and more confident that Garoppolo will be ready for Sunday's home game against the Indianapolis Colts.

"He's getting better each day," Shanahan said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "I mean, there shouldn't be any problem with him by Sunday at all. Any time you're coming off the calf injury like that, it takes a little time to get that soreness out, so you'll see it on some throws here and there. But each day it gets much better, and I think he'll be feeling 100 percent by Sunday."

Shanahan also provided an update on his veteran tackle, Trent Williams. The offensive lineman missed the last two practices, and the 49ers announced that he is considered "day-to-day" due to an ankle sprain.

The injury occurred during San Francisco's loss to the Cardinals.

"He did that in the Arizona game, and he was working on it the week away, and he dinged it a little bit on Monday," Shanahan said. "He got to come out to practice on Monday and do stuff, but he dinged it, and that's why he wasn't able to go yesterday, wasn't able to go today.

"Hopefully, he'll be able to get out there tomorrow because we definitely want him there on Sunday."

You can listen to the entire conversation with Shanahan below.

The San Francisco 49ers have come close to hoisting the franchise's sixth Vince Lombardi Trophy. They fell just short during the 2012 season, losing 34-31 to the Baltimore Ravens. Seven years later, they fell short again, collapsing in the fourth quarter of the Super Bowl and watching as the Kansas City Chiefs celebrated a championship. Last season, the 49ers were a play or two away from returning to sports' biggest stage, falling to the eventual Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the NFC title game. San Francisco can't get over the hump. On Monday, the Bay Area celebrated the Golden State Warriors' seventh championship as thousands of fans swarmed Market Street for the parade. It's an inspiring sight for the championship-hungry 49ers. "Yeah,



Kyle Shanahan: 49ers' Trey Lance can handle the pressure of starting

Trey Lance is slated to be the San Francisco 49ers' Week 1 starting quarterback after starting just two games as a rookie last season. The limited experience made some question whether the 22-year-old is ready to take the reins from Jimmy Garoppolo. It doesn't sound like there's any doubt in the mind of Lance's head coach, Kyle Shanahan. "Trey's a great dude," Shanahan said during the 49ers' State of the Franchise event. "He's himself. You can tell he was raised very good. He treats everyone right. He's also got a little chip on his shoulder, and he likes to compete out there and play ball. And he handles himself the right way. "I think the biggest thing on Trey that everyone's got to realize is he is younger. Trey's got more horsepower inside of him

Louis Riddick recently praised the San Francisco 49ers' young quarterback, Trey Lance. The ESPN analyst believes the former No. 3 overall pick is capable of shocking many people and turning in an MVP-like season. "I loved Trey Lance," Riddick said last week on ESPN. "... If he can clean up his decision-making and his accuracy, the kind of things that Kyle would be able to do to scheme people open with the use of the play-action pass ... he will be the best dual-threat quarterback in the NFL." What about the quarterback that Lance will be replacing this season—Jimmy Garoppolo? Last week,
