49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo expected to be fully cleared for training camp ... somewhere

On Tuesday, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo underwent shoulder surgery, performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache, a specialist who serves as the head physician of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Los Angeles Rams.

It sounds like everything went well with the procedure, which repaired a torn capsule in his shoulder. NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reports that the expectation is that Garoppolo will be fully cleared around the start of training camp in late July.

Right now, no one is sure which NFL roster will have Garoppolo on it.

Matt Barrows of The Athletic notes that Dr. ElAttrache also performed Garoppolo's ACL reconstruction surgery in 2018, and the quarterback returned earlier than expected from that procedure. ElAttrache also performed defensive end Nick Bosa's ACL surgery.

While the San Francisco 49ers claim to have a plan to keep Garoppolo and last year's No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, on the roster, the team seeks a trade of their veteran quarterback. The move would free up over $25 million in salary-cap space, allowing the re-signing of some key players, potential extensions for Bosa and wide receiver Deebo Samuel, and more aggressiveness in free agency.

According to OverTheCap, San Francisco is more than $6.3 million over the salary cap. NFL teams must be at or below the $208.2 million salary cap by Wednesday, March 16—the start of the new league year.

Earlier this week, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport reported that the 49ers had fielded several calls from teams expressing interest in Garoppolo. However, while many view Garoppolo as the top quarterback available following Aaron Rodgers remaining in Green Bay, Russell Wilson traded to Denver, and Carson Wentz now in Washington, the shoulder surgery complicates things.

"It's complicated because Garoppolo is, of course, recovering from a torn capsule in his shoulder," Rapoport said. "Not a torn rotator cuff but a torn capsule. And there's full confidence that he'll be ready to go in time for the season, not even expected to miss any training camp. But he only had surgery this week, so teams are going to want to know everything they possibly can about the medical."

Nick Bosa: "My body's fully adapted to football now" after 49ers' TNF win over Giants

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the New York Giants in a Thursday Night Football matchup during Week 3, notching a 30-12 victory in their home opener to improve to 3-0. San Francisco was dominant in all three areas of the field, consistently leading by two scores due to another strong offensive performance, matched by a defense that held the Giants to just 12 points overall. Despite the short week, the 49ers earned major contributions from defensive end Nick Bosa, who recorded a sack and six pressures in only 39 snaps due to the Giants' lack of offensive plays. Bosa's health has been an underrated factor through three weeks, as the defensive end was acclimated heavily in Week 2, playing 63 defensive snaps, which was a significant uptick from Week

The San Francisco 49ers announced their weekly practice squad elevations, sharing that wide receiver Willie Snead and cornerback Kendall Sheffield will be called up to the active roster for their Week 4 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals. With the announcement that Snead would be called up, one may assume that 49ers wideout Deebo Samuel's status would be trending down, as the 49ers expect to add another wideout to the active roster for Week 4. However, it's actually the opposite. Looking at the injury report, the 49ers aren't at risk of just missing Samuel, but

Why Brandon Aiyuk is becoming even more valuable to the 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers handily defeated the New York Giants in Week 3, winning 30-12 to improve to 3-0 on their season, scoring over 30 points for the third consecutive week of the season. Despite the comfortable win, the 49ers were nowhere near the "A-Game" offensively, struggling on some early drives and kicking field goals when touchdown opportunities were present, ultimately showcasing how dangerous this offense could be. While there were missed opportunities present last Thursday, another element that the 49ers were missing was emerging wideout Brandon Aiyuk, who was inactive due to a shoulder
