49ers-Rams: Jimmy Garoppolo says shoulder ‘feels great’ and thumb is ‘holding up’

Jan 28, 2022 at 3:39 PM--

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been a full participant in practice the last two days. During this past weekend's win against the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field, he played through a shoulder and thumb injury. It seems that one of those injuries isn't an issue anymore.

This week, head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the right shoulder sprain no longer appeared on the injury reports he gets from the team's training and medical staff.

"I hear about the thumb more than the shoulder, so that's off the injury report now," Shanahan said on Wednesday. "So I guess we're good."

Garoppolo spoke with reporters after Friday's practice and was asked how his shoulder feels compared to last week.

"It feels great," the quarterback responded. "Yeah, arm's ready to roll."

Garoppolo was also asked about the torn ligament in his right thumb. How has it progressed since the initial injury?

"It feels great," Garoppolo repeated before laughing.

The quarterback didn't want to comment on another part of the reporter's question—whether or not he would require surgery after the season.

"I think we'll approach that after the season a little more," Garoppolo added. "But yeah, it's holding up for right now. It'll be alright."

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch told KNBR this past Monday that the organization appeared close to trading starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo earlier in the offseason, but those talks came to a screeching halt when the decision was made for the 30-year old signal-caller to have surgery on his injured shoulder. Lynch later mentioned that the team continued to have dialogue surrounding Garoppolo during the NFL Draft, but it appeared teams were hoping to secure his services at a discounted price. Lynch also mentioned that teams typically don't rush out to trade for a player following surgery until they know they've made a full recovery. To me, it almost felt like

Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not

Breer: Jimmy Garoppolo's 49ers fate dependent on Trey Lance's offseason development

Jimmy Garoppolo has remained on the San Francisco 49ers roster far longer than anyone expected or predicted. The Niners have tried to trade the veteran, clearing the way for second-year quarterback Trey Lance. However, offseason shoulder surgery halted trade discussions, and the 49ers, for now, appear stuck with Garoppolo and his hefty salary. The 49ers have maintained that they are comfortable holding onto Garoppolo if they cannot strike a deal to their liking. Everyone realizes, though, that Plan A is to trade the quarterback for something worthwhile rather than letting him fulfill his contract on the team and leave as a free agent in 2023. Releasing Garoppolo would also net them nothing, aside from salary cap space. Holding onto Garoppolo might happen. Most of

Ross Tucker believes 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo to Panthers remains a possibility

Former NFL offensive lineman turned sports broadcaster and analyst Ross Tucker doesn't "believe for a second" that the Carolina Panthers and Seattle Seahawks will enter Week 1 of the 2022 season with one of their current quarterbacks as the starter. Instead, he feels both teams will make a move to prevent that from happening. I don't believe for a second that the Panthers & Seahawks are going into Week 1 with their current QBs on the roster.— Ross Tucker (@RossTuckerNFL) May 16,
