NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that 49ers QB Nick Mullens will need surgery on his right elbow after suffering an injury late in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. Mullens reportedly lost feeling in the arm after having it hit on a 4th-quarter pass. C.J. Beathard will start Saturday's game against the Cardinals.

Update: Cam Inman reports that it's Tommy John (ligament replacement) surgery for Mullens.

The 49ers have designated QB Jimmy Garoppolo to return from IR. That doesn't necessarily mean he'll play again this season; it simply opens the 21-day practice window. With just 2 weeks remaining, that means the team could have Garoppolo practice the rest of the way without needing to decide on activating him. We wouldn't bet on Garoppolo taking the field in Week 16. C.J. Beathard appears in line to face the Cardinals on Saturday.

Update: Cam Inman reports that Garoppolo will practice but "won't play in games." With Nick Mullens set for elbow surgery, Beathard looks like the starter for the final 2 games.

49ers QB Nick Mullens injured his right (throwing) shoulder in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. We'll look for an update on the severity. QB C.J. Beathard replaced Mullens and will be under center for as long as Mullens is out. QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) isn't expected to return this season.

Update: The 49ers announced Mullens with an elbow injury.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo was benched at halftime of Sunday's game against Miami. He was horrible in the first 30 minutes, completing just 7 of 17 passes for 77 yards and 2 INTs. QB C.J. Beathard replaced Garoppolo. We're assuming the 'Niners will go back to Garoppolo next week, but we'll see what HC Kyle Shanahan says.

The 49ers announced that QB Nick Mullens will start tonight's game against the Raiders. QB C.J. Beathard (wrist) will be active as the backup. Mullens went undrafted out of Southern Miss. He completed a mediocre 60% of his career passes in college and tossed 46 INTs in 44 games. Downgrade George Kittle to low-end TE1 status with Mullens under center. We'd try to avoid the rest of San Francisco's passing game.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan labeled QB C.J. Beathard a game-time decision for Thursday night's tilt with the Raiders. He's dealing with a wrist injury that's inhibiting his ability to grip the ball. It's obviously not something you want to be messing with in fantasy lineups. QB Nick Mullens will make his 1st career NFL start if Beathard can't go.

49ers QB C.J. Beathard is dealing with a wrist injury that's making it tough to hold the ball, HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. Shanny also suggested that Beathard is shaping up as a game-time decision for Thursday night's tilt with the Raiders. If Beathard can't go, San Francisco would be down to QB Nick Mullens, a former undrafted free agent out of Southern Miss.

An MRI on 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's left knee revealed a torn ACL. His 2018 campaign is over. If this is a clean ACL tear with no other ligament damage, Garoppolo has a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2019 season a little over 11 months from now. QB C.J. Beathard takes over for the rest of this year. He completed 55.3% of his passes and averaged 6.3 yards per attempt in 5 starts late last season. The 'Niners averaged just 14.8 points in those games. Garoppolo's absence will be felt by everyone in this offense.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said in the post-game press conference that the team "fears" a torn ACL for Jimmy Garoppolo. That'd be a season-ending injury for the $137 million QB. Garoppolo will undergo additional tests to confirm the initial diagnosis, and we should get another update tomorrow. The downgrade to backup QB C.J. Beathard is obviously significant, so this is a big blow to all of San Francisco's skill-position guys.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo exited with a left knee injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He was carted back to the locker room and "visibly upset," according to insider Matt Maiocco. We'll update Garoppolo's status as soon as we know more. QB C.J. Beathard has entered the game for San Francisco.

49ers QB C.J. Beathard has a knee contusion and a hip strain, HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday. Neither injury is considered serious. Shanny plans to announce his Week 13 starting QB on Wednesday. Neither Beathard nor Jimmy Garoppolo will be more than a lower-end QB2 in Chicago.

49ers QB C.J. Beathard suffered a lower-leg injury late in Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, HC Kyle Shanahan said afterward. QB Jimmy Garoppolo came on for a brief cameo, completing both of his passes for 18 yards and a score. We should learn more about Beathard's injury tomorrow.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan named QB C.J. Beathard his starter for Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He turned in his best performance of the season last time out, completing 76% of his passes for 288 yards and 2 TDs in a win over the Giants. That said, Beathard will hit the bench as soon as Shanahan thinks QB Jimmy Garoppolo is ready.

It doesn't come as a surprise, but 49ers HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed that QB C.J. Beathard will start Sunday's game against the Giants, with Jimmy Garoppolo as his backup. Beathard's a streaming option in a game that looks ugly from all sides. The situation might add a little risk that severe struggles lead the rookie to be pulled for Garoppolo mid game. We already saw Shanahan replace Brian Hoyer with Beathard in such a manor. We expect Garoppolo to step in as the starter at some point before this season's over.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed after Sunday's loss to the Redskins that QB C.J. Beathard will remain the team's starter going forward. The 3rd-round rookie sparked the offense in Washington, completing 19 of 36 passes for 245 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT. He also added a 14-yard run. Beathard can't be trusted in fantasy lineups of any type at this point but could certainly prove to be a long-term upgrade over QB Brian Hoyer. It's also worth noting that Beathard was college teammates with TE George Kittle. The duo hooked up of 3 of 7 attempts for 41 yards on Sunday.

The 49ers drafted Iowa QB C.J. Beathard in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL Draft. Bobby Beathard’s grandson started his final 2 college seasons, completing just 59.3% of his passes with 34 TDs vs. 15 INTs. C.J. draws high marks for his mechanics, football IQ and leadership ability. But he has borderline NFL skills and might be nothing more than a long-term backup. We’ll see what HC Kyle Shanahan can get out of him, but Beathard isn’t a threat for the 2017 starting job.
