Where the 49ers sit in the NFC West standings after Week 6 action

The good news is that the Seattle Seahawks lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The outcome may have been different with a healthy Russell Wilson at the helm, but the 23-20 defeat drops Seattle to 2-4 and last place in the NFC West. The San Francisco 49ers are 2-3 and were on their bye during Week 6's action. They are now in third place and will begin preparing to host the Indianapolis Colts. We still don't know who will be the quarterback in that game. Both Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) and rookie Trey Lance (knee) are dealing with injuries. We'll learn more about their statuses during this week's practices. The bye week allowed head coach Kyle Shanahan to attend the induction ceremony for his father, Mike Shanahan, into the Denver Broncos Ring of Fame. The elder Shanahan



49ers hope Brandon Aiyuk's 'great week' of practice carries over to Colts game, says Deebo Samuel

Brandon Aiyuk has certainly been in the spotlight over the 49ers bye week, as his lack of touches on the year has been questioned, given his impressive rookie season. Aiyuk currently has just 15 targets on the year, good for 5th on the team, and only eight of those plays have resulted in a catch. Last year, Aiyuk accumulated 60 receptions, 748 yards, and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three categories while playing in just 12 games. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will return to the field Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and has had the chance to practice with Aiyuk and the first-team offense after being cleared for the calf injury he sustained against the Seattle Seahawks. Amongst that first-team offense is breakout star receiver Deebo



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo made 'big strides' in calf recovery over the bye

Jimmy Garoppolo is recovering from yet another injury. Luckily for him, this latest setback won't cost him too much playing time. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback exited the October 3 game against the Seattle Seahawks with a calf injury. By the end of halftime, he couldn't put much pressure on the leg. Garoppolo missed the second half of that game and all of the next game — a Week 5 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He returned to the practice field on Monday. The quarterback will be on the field with his teammates today but will be limited, per head coach Kyle Shanahan. Everything points toward Garoppolo being ready to go for Sunday's game against the Indianapolis Colts, assuming no setbacks. Will he be at 100 percent, though, by kickoff? "I'm



What Joe Staley said when asked if the 49ers should start Trey Lance over Jimmy Garoppolo

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The 49ers have had a quarterback controversy since they traded three first-round picks on March 29th to the Miami Dolphins for the pick eventually used to select Trey Lance. Seven weeks into the NFL season, that controversy has only intensified, as San Francisco fell at home to the Indianapolis Colts 30-18 in a disappointing outing that left the team with even more questions than answers, especially at quarterback. For the first time all year, Kyle Shanahan was somewhat hesitant when naming his starting quarterback, expressing uncertainty for Week 8 following the Sunday-night beatdown by the Colts. "Jimmy was able to come back and play, and we'll
