49ers don’t expect Jimmy Garoppolo to be active vs. Eagles; Deebo Samuel added to injury list

Jan 25, 2023 at 12:15 PM--



It was unlikely that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suited up on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles, serving as rookie Brock Purdy's backup in the NFC Championship Game. Still, there was a slight chance the injured veteran could be healthy enough to be active. The team awaited the results of an X-ray on Tuesday to see how much Garoppolo's broken foot has recovered.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Wednesday and shared that the 49ers got the X-ray results.

"I don't expect to have him this week," Shanahan revealed.

Garoppolo sustained his injury on December 4. A return for the Super Bowl remains a possibility.

A new name was added to the 49ers' injury report. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel will not practice on Wednesday due to an ankle injury.

"It's been there for a little bit," Shanahan said. "I think he'll be all right, but it concerned us enough to not let him go today."

The wide receiver also expects to be ready for action this weekend in Philadelphia.

"It's just kind of sore," Samuel told reporters. "It's just [us] being pretty cautious, just trying to get ready for Sunday."

Others who are not expected to practice on Wednesday are running backs Christian McCaffrey (calf) and Elijah Mitchell (groin).
