Dan Sileo, a former NFL defensive tackle, reports on his show, The National Football Show, that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo started throwing two weeks ago. The team initially estimated that the veteran, who underwent shoulder surgery on March 8, would start throwing in early July.

"He just started throwing two weeks ago," Sileo said while speaking with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated. "... He started throwing two weeks ago—intermediate stuff with trainers and such. So two weeks ago, he started throwing."

However, Sileo adds that he doesn't believe Garoppolo will be ready for full-contact action once the 49ers report to training camp on July 26.

"He'll probably get healthy by the end of camp, maybe miss the first couple of weeks," Sileo said. "This is going to be [Trey] Lance's job. It was always going to be Lance's job because Garoppolo, health-wise, was not going to be ready."

On Thursday, Sileo also reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers might be interested in trading for Garoppolo. Of course, Sileo's track record regarding breaking 49ers news is unknown. However, he has a close relationship with San Francisco's general manager, John Lynch.

"I spoke with [Bucs GM] Jason Licht, and Jason Licht told me, prior to Brady coming back and coming out of retirement, one of the options was to go and try to get Garoppolo and bring him in to be the heir apparent and to take over for Brady after he comes off of his injury."

Sileo later said, "What I'm hearing is this: The Buccaneers have reached out to the 49ers to try to bring Garoppolo down to be the heir apparent for Brady when he calls it a career at the end of the year. Both guys are represented by Don Yee."

Sileo added that Cleveland Browns general manager Andrew Berry has also reached out to John Lynch and the 49ers.

"John won't confirm it for me," the former defensive tackle noted, "but he said there's multiple teams that have reached out to him about Garoppolo."

Sileo believes the Buccaneers are the best fit for Garoppolo.

49ers reportedly among teams "most interested" in TE Zach Ertz

By David Bonilla
Dec 6

Zach Ertz has expressed his desire to join a playoff contender, and it appears that at least one is showing interest—the San Francisco 49ers. Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports that the Niners are among the "most interested" in the three-time Pro Bowl player. The move makes sense. The 49ers have long searched for a tight end to complement George Kittle, their All-Pro playmaker. Ertz could prove to be an ideal fit for that role. He played college football at Stanford and grew up in the region. Longtime backup Ross Dwelley suffered a high-ankle sprain during Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles and will miss multiple

This Sunday features one of the most anticipated matchups of the season. The San Francisco 49ers (8-3) will travel to face the Philadelphia Eagles (10-1) in a rematch of last season's NFC Championship Game. The Eagles are riding a five-game winning streak, while the 49ers have won three straight since stumbling through October. Fans have had the Week 13 matchup circled on their calendars since the schedule was released in May. "We know everybody's going to be riled up for this game, and we just got to stay level-headed and just go out there and play Niner football," wide receiver Deebo Samuel told Kay Adams on Tuesday morning. Any loss leaves a bitter taste, but a playoff loss is particularly devastating. Samuel, who has been to the NFC Championship

Maybe the San Francisco 49ers will be in the market to draft another wide receiver soon. Suppose the front office seeks the opinion of running back Christian McCaffrey. In that case, he will likely be vocal in his recommendation—a certain Rice wideout named Luke McCaffrey, who happens to be his younger brother. "I would love to play with him one day," the older McCaffrey told reporters in the 49ers' locker room after Thursday's practice. "That would be the coolest thing ever. So I'm excited for him and his journey, and he's only going to get better." Luke, listed at 6-foot-2 and 200 pounds, recorded 68 receptions for 963 yards and 12 touchdowns this season, averaging 14.2 yards per catch. "Yeah, I've watched every snap of every game," Christian

49ers vs. Eagles Injury Report: Arik Armstead doesn't practice

By David Bonilla
Nov 29

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 13 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Defensive tackle Arik Armstead is dealing with a foot injury and did not practice. When asked if it was a similar issue to what he dealt with last season (plantar fasciitis), head coach Kyle Shanahan responded, "Not sure exactly. I know it's his foot, but not sure how similar it is." Also missing from practice were running back Jordan Mason, who is dealing with a hamstring issue, and wide receiver Ray-Ray McCloud, who is recovering from a rib injury. Guard Spencer Burford returned to practice on Monday after being among the 49ers' inactive players against the Seattle Seahawks last week. He
