John Lynch provides injury update on 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is likely done for the season. There is a slight chance he could return in some capacity late in the playoffs, assuming the Niners make a deep run. However, that's not something the team is counting on nor even optimistic about. The 49ers are pushing forward with rookie quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm of the offense.

On Thursday morning, general manager John Lynch did offer an update on his injured veteran quarterback, though.

"That's a hard one to monitor, Marcus," Lynch told KNBR's Markus Boucher and Marcus Thompson. "But I can tell you he's out of his cast now, in more of a boot, but still not walking on that. I think they wanted a good opportunity for healing early on, but he did get the hard cast off. So that's the progress, but it's not something that you can check on each and every day because the first part was just letting this thing heal. And so, we're still kind of in that mode."

The 49ers made every effort to trade Garoppolo this past offseason. However, shoulder surgery in March threw a wrench in the team's plans. Unable to facilitate a trade, San Francisco signed Garoppolo to a restructured one-year deal, keeping the quarterback as Trey Lance's backup.

Garoppolo was thrust back into the starting role when Lance suffered a season-ending ankle injury during Week 2. Then, Garoppolo went down with a broken foot in Week 13.

"Jimmy is here every day," Lynch continued. "He's in meetings. He's very into it. He's been great to Brock, as has Trey. That's nice to see. That room has always been solid here. They look out for each other. They all are competitors, but they all have each others' backs, so that's been cool."

John Lynch: Brandon Aiyuk's status for 49ers-Giants remains "very fluid," could be game-time decision

This week's focus remains on San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. The team has a short week to prepare for its next opponent—the New York Giants on Thursday night at Levi's Stadium. The matchup comes just four days after the Niners' 30-23 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Aiyuk suffered a shoulder injury on his first catch, a 13-yard reception during San Francisco's opening drive. He was in and out of the lineup throughout the game and was limited during the 49ers' light Tuesday practice. On Tuesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that the decision will come down to how Aiyuk feels and the evaluation from the training staff. It sounds like the receiver may end up being a
