Battle does not practice Wednesday morning

San Francisco 49ers WR Arnaz Battle (knee) was held out of Wednesday morning's contact practice, Aug. 2, because of a recurrence of swelling in his right knee. The 49ers had limited Battle to one practice per day during camp in an attempt to manage the injury, but it cropped up again after Tuesday's workout, Aug. 1.

Team likes what they see in Gilmore

The San Francisco 49ers like what they see in WR Bryan Gilmore. The 49ers signed Gilmore on the recommendation of receivers coach Jerry Sullivan, who coached Gilmore with Arizona and Miami. "In meeting with him, the thing that stood out is his desire to establish himself as a wide receiver," head coach Mike Nolan said Wednesday, Aug. 2. "He's been called a good special-teams player and he wants to change that a little bit, and that's good. That shows some motivation on his part." Gilmore has flashed speed and precision running routes in practice. Nolan added that Gilmore's strong showing at training camp has made him the leading contender to be the No.3 receiver, behind starters WRs Arnaz Battle and Antonio Bryant.

49ers' third QB options for this season and beyond

By David Bonilla
Sep 19

Brock Purdy is now one injury away from starting. While the San Francisco 49ers have expressed a lot of confidence in the last overall pick in this year's draft, having the rookie lead a championship-caliber roster probably isn't ideal. Veteran Jimmy Garoppolo is the starter moving forward following the season-ending injury to Trey Lance, last year's No. 3 overall pick. Lance will undergo surgery today on the broken ankle suffered in the first quarter of Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Purdy hasn't even been active in San Francisco's two games this season. However, he may suit up for Sunday's matchup against the Denver Broncos. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk

Silver: Some 49ers players and coaches believe team is better with Jimmy Garoppolo

By David Bonilla
Sep 19

The San Francisco 49ers avoided a catastrophe by bringing back quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo on a restructured one-year deal. Trey Lance's season ending in Week 2 is disappointing. The worst-case scenario for this season would have been not having a quarterback capable of stepping in and keeping the team competitive. Holding onto Garoppolo once seemed like an unnecessary luxury. Now, some feel the team is better suited to make a deep playoff run than they were with the second-year quarterback. Garoppolo knows the offense and what is expected of him. He's been a part of the locker room since 2017. According to one report, inside the building, some feel the team is better equipped to compete with Garoppolo at the helm of the offense. "[T]his is the part



Have Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch mismanaged the 49ers QB situation?

By Marc Adams

The San Francisco 49ers plan was set. Draft a young quarterback who would eventually replace Jimmy Garoppolo. The young draftee would be able to sit and learn under the veteran Garoppolo, and then take over in 2022. But things haven't exactly gone according to plan, and on Sunday, the plan imploded when Trey Lance broke his ankle—an injury that will cost him the remainder of the 2022 season. Much has been made about how well (or poorly) Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch have managed the 49ers quarterbacks. I've seen many fans and media blaming Shanahan for the current situation. Many have criticized the duo for how messy the QB situation has been since trading away two first-round round picks, and swapping another first-round pick, to draft a quarterback. Have
