49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo regarding his knee: “Feels great, baby”

Dec 1, 2022 at 3:43 PM--


When Jimmy Garoppolo arrived to work on Monday, his knee was "pretty sore." The San Francisco 49ers quarterback took a painful hit from New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Malcolm Roach a day earlier, which he felt might have crossed the line.

Garoppolo was a full practice participant on Wednesday and Thursday. He didn't even need a brace on his leg. The quarterback spoke with reporters for the first time this week after Thursday's practice and was asked how his knee felt four days after the hit.

"Feels great," Garoppolo responded. "Feels great, baby."

That last part came with a big Garoppolo smile. Obviously, the quarterback isn't hindered by the impact and will play on Sunday when the 49ers host the Miami Dolphins at Levi's Stadium.

"No, it's coming along," Garoppolo added. "I feel pretty good with it."

This weekend's big Week 13 clash might be on a soaked field. There is a 70 percent chance of rain for Sunday.


"It will affect the game very little," Garoppolo shared. "The elements are what they are. Wind, rain, show, whatever it is, we've played in just about everything this year. I think we're ready for the game. Practiced out there in [the rain] today, and it didn't seem too crazy, but we'll deal with whatever is dealt to us."

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo says Super Bowl return 'still up in the air'

The San Francisco 49ers have officially ruled out quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for this weekend's NFC Championship Game against the Philadelphia Eagles. That wasn't unexpected. The chances of the former starter suiting up for Sunday's playoff bout, backing up rookie Brock Purdy, were slim. "Yeah, it's just been an outside chance the whole time, and that was still an outside chance," head coach Kyle Shanahan said Thursday, before that outside chance turned into no chance. The 49ers never placed Garoppolo on injured reserve, leaving the door open for a playoff return. However, we are now down to just one more game as a possibility—Super



Jets will look closely at 49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo in free agency

The New York Jets will likely be looking to upgrade the quarterback position by bringing in a veteran after seemingly misfiring with Zach Wilson. Internally, one of the options being thrown around is San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Of course, he isn't the only option in what should be an intriguing offseason of potential quarterback moves. "According to sources, the Jets will be looking closely at [Aaron] Rodgers, Jimmy Garoppoloand Derek Carr," wrote Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports. "They won't limit their search to just those three quarterbacks -- and sources stress it's still early in the process --



Kyle Shanahan doesn't see Jimmy Garoppolo returning to 49ers, isn't looking to add a veteran starting QB

It remains to be seen how things will play out at the quarterback position for the San Francisco 49ers in 2023, but one thing the team doesn't appear to be interested in is adding another front line veteran to the picture who is capable of excelling as a starter if things didn't work out with Brock Purdy or Trey Lance. That includes Jimmy Garoppolo, whose time with the 49ers appears to have come to an end. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed the quarterback situation during his year-end press conference Wednesday, which included questions about what kind of quarterback the team might look to add in the weeks ahead. Speculation swirled recently over the possibility of the 49ers being interested in Tom Brady before he announced his retirement earlier on
