Much has been discussed about the San Francisco 49ers' injuries at running back. On the defensive side of the football, the cornerback group has been impacted by injuries too. Emmanuel Moseley (knee) has yet to be active for a game this season. In addition, the team lost Jason Verrett for the season to a torn ACL.

Like so many veteran quarterbacks, Rodgers is fighting time and has a young quarterback, Jordan Love, waiting in the wings. Garoppolo is in a similar situation. He is the undisputed starter in Santa Clara, but the future belongs to rookie Trey Lance, the team's No. 3 overall pick. "I know Aaron pretty well," Garoppolo said this week on The Rich Eisen Show.
