49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo wants to 'give it a go' at practice on Friday, says Kyle Shanahan

The door hasn't completely shut on the possibility of Jimmy Garoppolo being the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. The veteran quarterback hasn't practiced this week after sustaining a calf injury during Week 4's loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Things appear to be trending in the direction of rookie Trey Lance making his first career NFL start. Garoppolo hasn't given up hope of playing, though. He may be on the practice field on Friday, the team's final practice of the week. Head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR this afternoon. The only player he was willing to rule out for the weekend is cornerback K'Waun Williams, who isn't expected to return until after the bye week. "Jimmy told me he wants to give it a



49ers' Kyle Shanahan on Trey Lance: 'He will give us a chance to win a lot going forward'

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters this afternoon, nearly 24 hours after his team suffered its third consecutive loss of the season. There was a lot of bad from the trip to State Farm Stadium to play the Arizona Cardinals. However, there was also some good. The game was rookie Trey Lance's first NFL start. The 21-year-old quarterback had his ups and downs, but it was an opportunity for growth. Lance was playing because the 49ers' regular starter, Jimmy Garoppolo, is dealing with a calf injury. "I was proud of him," Shanahan said of Lance via a conference call. "I thought he went into a tough environment versus a real good team. I thought he did a lot of real good things. He threw a bad pick on that first drive, but I thought he

San Francisco 49ers general manger John Lynch joined KNBR today and provided a bit of an update on the team's injured tight end, George Kittle. There had been hope that Kittle might be available for this past weekend's game against the Arizona Cardinals. However, the 49ers ended up putting their star tight end on injured reserve the day before kickoff. That means Kittle will have to miss three games. The first was this past Sunday's game. He will also have to sit out the matchups against the Indianapolis Colts and Chicago Bears. Kittle will be eligible to return on November 7 when the 49ers host the Arizona Cardinals. While there is always the possibility of a setback, Lynch feels optimistic that Kittle will be back for that Week 9 contest. "That was

"I mean, I'm going to do everything I can to be on the field on Sunday," George Kittle told reporters on Friday. "And then, if my body says I can go, I'll be out there." It sounds like we can expect the San Francisco 49ers star tight end to be out there for the team's first divisional matchup of the season. Despite being listed as "questionable" for the game, per multiple reports, Kittle is expected to be on the field at Levi's Stadium this afternoon when the Niners host the Seattle Seahawks. "While officially a game-time decision, SF has optimism that Kittle will be correct," notes Ian Rapoport of NFL
