ESPN's Adam Schefter reports 49ers QB Trey Lance suffered a "significant" right ankle injury in the Week 2 win over the Seahawks. Lance is expected to need surgery that will "likely" end his season. You can hang on to him on fantasy rosters until we get official confirmation that Lance's season is over, which figures to come tomorrow. San Francisco will turn back to QB Jimmy Garoppolo, which will mean a significant shift in the offense. The 49ers' pass rate will climb, and there will be more carries to go around since Garoppolo won't be taking many.

49ers QB Trey Lance injured his right leg in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. the Seahawks. He had to be carted off the field and is obviously done for the day. We'll pass along an update when we get one. QB Jimmy Garoppolo has entered for the 'Niners.

The 49ers remain "fully behind" QB Trey Lance, despite the decision to retain QB Jimmy Garoppolo, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Rapoport adds that the team simply couldn't pass up the opportunity to keep Garoppolo as a quality backup for just $6.5 million -- and that a midseason trade is still possible.

The 49ers and QB Jimmy Garoppolo are finalizing a new deal that will make him the "highest paid backup in the NFL," according to NFL Network. It's a surprising move after the 'Niners basically said all offseason that Garoppolo had no future with the team. San Francisco has committed to QB Trey Lance as the starter -- but Garoppolo's presence will make it easier to bench Lance if he struggles this year. We're not moving Lance in the QB rankings, but his fantasy floor is now a little low.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Garoppolo is getting $6.5 million guaranteed with "playtime bonuses that can boost it another nearly $9 million." So it's a backup-level deal with upside in case Garoppolo ends up playing more than expected.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has been cleared to practice after offseason shoulder surgery. "He has no restrictions and I’m watching him throw out here right now," GM John Lynch said. "He looks pretty good." With the 'Niners turning the offense over to QB Trey Lance this year, Garoppolo has been working separately from the rest of the team. We'll see if a trade materializes ahead of Week 1.

If there was any remaining doubt as to who will be the 49ers' starting QB this season, HC Kyle Shanahan put that to rest on Tuesday. "We have moved on to Trey Lance," Shanahan said. "This is Trey's team." QB Jimmy Garoppolo remains on the roster as he recovers from shoulder surgery, but the 'Niners are hoping to trade Garoppolo "as soon as we can," Shanahan added. Lance remains mostly an unknown as a passer. But he's in a favorable scheme with strong weapons. Throw in his high-end rushing upside and he's an attractive target at his QB13 ADP.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that 49ers (still) QB Jimmy Garoppolo recently had a checkup with Dr. Neal ElAttrache and is "progressing well." Rapport added that the Niners are "thrilled with where he is physically." Garoppolo has reportedly been throwing for about 4 weeks and is expected to gain full clearance to return from his right-shoulder injury in mid-August. We'll see whether this is enough to jumpstart the QB's trade market.

According to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, “the expectation within the league” remains that 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be traded by August 1. A recent report suggested that the Bucs made a play for Garoppolo, but his agent (Don Yee) shot that down. Unsurprisingly, Yee also claimed that his client is “progressing well and on schedule” from offseason shoulder surgery.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo "remains on schedule" in his rehab from March shoulder surgery and is expected to resume throwing in early July, ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports. HC Kyle Shanahan straight-up said a month ago that he expects Garoppolo to be traded once this shoulder issue is behind him. Carolina seems like his most likely landing spot.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan still believes QB Jimmy Garoppolo will be traded. "I expect at sometime, most likely, he’ll be traded but, who knows,” Shanahan said of the veteran passer. “That’s not a guarantee. It went on hold when it (surgery) happened. When he’s healthy we’ll see what happens.” Carolina and Seattle make the most sense as potential landing spots. But this has the potential to drag out for months.

NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reports that 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will have surgery in the coming days to repair a torn capsule in his right (throwing) shoulder. Garoppolo then won’t be able to throw for 16 weeks, “but should be ready for the season if all goes well.” That nearly 4-month window would make it late June or early July before Garoppolo can even resume throwing. It’s tough to imagine another team trading for him ahead of that, given the QB’s big contract and no guarantee that “all goes well.” Don’t bother with Garoppolo in early best-ball drafting. We’ll see how his situation develops

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will have surgery on his right thumb, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Garoppolo suffered a torn UCL and fracture in that thumb in Week 16. He missed just 1 game but admitted that the thumb was a problem for the rest of the regular season and the playoffs. Garoppolo's rehab is expected to take 4-6 weeks, per Rapoport, so it shouldn't impact his offseason too much. Rapoport also confirms that Garoppolo has likely played his last down for the 49ers with the Trey Lance era set to begin in 2022. We'll see where Garoppolo lands.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb, shoulder) is not listed on the final injury report for Saturday night's Divisional Round game vs. the Packers. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so the injuries aren't a major concern.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (shoulder, thumb) got in a limited practice on Tuesday. He stopped short afterward of guaranteeing that he'll start Saturday's game vs. the Packers, saying, "we'll feel it out throughout the week." We're expecting Garoppolo to be under center in Green Bay but will get another update on his status on Wednesday.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that QB Jimmy Garoppolo has a "slight" sprain to his right (throwing) shoulder. The injury reportedly occurred in the 2nd quarter of Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Garoppolo didn't miss any time in that one and is expected to practice on Wednesday, per Shanahan. We'll keep an eye on him.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) is active for today’s game vs. the Rams. He got in 3 limited practices this week and evidently threw well enough with that right thumb injury. Garoppolo is a risky fantasy bet today.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that there's a "strong lean" toward the 49ers starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo in Sunday's game against the Rams. We'll certainly watch to confirm that, but fantasy managers who were hoping to start Trey Lance need to make alternate plans.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) is expected to play vs. the Rams on Sunday, according to insider Matt Maiocco. It sounds like Maiocco is basing that off the fact that San Francisco did not elevate QB Nate Sudfeld from the practice squad, rather than information from a source. Still, fantasy owners should now be operating under the assumption that it'll be Garoppolo under center. He'd be a risky fantasy start playing through an injury to his throwing thumb.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game vs. the Rams. He got in 3 limited practices this week. "He had a good week,” HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday. “Feel good with where he's at right now.” Shanahan added that he’s already decided who will start at QB but wouldn’t reveal. We’ll look for an update on this situation on Sunday morning.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) was officially limited in Wednesday's practice. He admitted that the thumb was sore after throwing on Tuesday and that it still hurts to throw. That doesn't sound like a guy who's likely to play vs. the Rams this weekend, but we'll continue to keep a close eye on Garoppolo's progress.
