49ers-Cowboys: Jimmy Garoppolo provides an update on his injured thumb

Jan 12, 2022 at 12:43 PM--



San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo played through a significant amount of pain during Sunday's 27-24 playoff-clinching overtime win against the Los Angeles Rams. He is dealing with a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb, making throwing a football a challenge.

Garoppolo could require offseason surgery. Right now, he is focused on the 49ers' playoff opponent—the Dallas Cowboys.

Garoppolo spoke with reporters via Zoom before Wednesday's practice. He was asked how his thumb felt after Sunday's thrilling game and how it felt on Wednesday as the 49ers start preparing for the Cowboys.

"The thumb held up pretty well," Garoppolo responded. "It is what it is. It was a little sore after the game, but it's feeling great right now."

That's good news for the 49ers, who will lean on Garoppolo to lead the team's No. 12 ranked passing attack and No. 7 ranked offense (total yards) against the Cowboys defense. Dallas is currently favored by three points in the upcoming Wild-Card matchup.

"It was a pretty good throwing session yesterday, just trying to get the motion back and everything, get it feeling where I want it to feel." Garoppolo will participate in Wednesday's practice.

K'Waun Williams, one of the best slot corners in the league, came off the reserve/COVID-19 list on Saturday, the day before the San Francisco 49ers' regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. He did not play in that game, though. A report from NBC Sports Bay Area indicated the cornerback wasn't feeling well enough to do so. Williams has not been listed on any practice participation reports this week, leading to the assumption that he has been a full participant and should play in Sunday's playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. However, head coach Kyle Shanahan isn't revealing anything at this point. "K'Waun's one of the top nickels in the
