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."

George Kittle impressed by Trey Lance's progress, says 49ers QB benefitted from Jimmy Garoppolo

It isn't easy to speculate on the development of Trey Lance during practices. Most of those criticizing the young quarterback were not watching him every day. One player who did watch Lance every day is his San Francisco 49ers teammate, George Kittle. The All-Pro tight end loves what he has seen from the now-22-year-old quarterback. Lance is expected to be the 49ers' starter come Week 1 of the upcoming season. However, the starter of the past four-and-a-half seasons, Jimmy Garoppolo, remains on the roster. Garoppolo is recovering from the shoulder surgery he underwent on March 8, so the 49ers can't trade the veteran quarterback until he is medically cleared to throw again. Kittle joined The Pat McAfee Show on Friday and was asked if Garoppolo remaining

Albert Breer on 49ers and Jimmy Garoppolo: 'I don't believe the plan right now is to keep him'

Jimmy Garoppolo won't be in attendance as the San Francisco 49ers kick off organized team activities this week. He is still recovering from the shoulder surgery he underwent on March 8 and won't be medically cleared to throw again until late next month or early July. There has been speculation that the 49ers might be willing to hold onto Garoppolo this season. The team's inability to trade their injured quarterback and unwillingness to release the player outright sparked that speculation. However, Albert Breer of The MMQB believes San Francisco still intends to offload Garoppolo before the start of the season. "San Francisco, for what it's worth, has had an open line of communication with Garoppolo's camp the last few months, and both sides are

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,
