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.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said after Sunday's win over the Texans that QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start next weekend's regular-season finale if his thumb is back to 100%. But he also admitted that it'll be tough for Garoppolo to get to 100% by next Sunday. So it sure sounds like QB Trey Lance is the favorite to start vs. the Rams. The rookie disappointed with just 31 scoreless rushing yards today but delivered with 249 yards and 2 TDs passing.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) is inactive for today’s game vs. the Texans. Rookie QB Trey Lance will make his 2nd career start. See where he sits in the Week 17 QB Rankings.

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) is not expected to play vs. the Texans today but adds that the team is "optimistic" that he'll be back for the regular-season finale vs. the Rams. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Garoppolo is expected to undergo surgery on the thumb after the season. We'll see if QB Trey Lance changes the equation with his performance today -- and then monitor Garoppolo's progress this coming week.

Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Texans after missing practice all week. That clears the way for Trey Lance to make his 2nd career start ... and factor into plenty of fantasy football matchups.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. We continue to expect QB Trey Lance to start this weekend's game vs. the Texans, but we'll get another update on Jimmy G tomorrow.

49ers RB Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb) did not practice on Wednesday. The 'Niners are still holding out hope that he'll be able to play vs. the Texans this weekend, but we're tentatively expecting QB Trey Lance to get the nod.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has a torn UCL along with a fracture in his right thumb. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls the latter injury a "chipped bone" and adds that Garoppolo is "going to try to gut it out, somehow" vs. the Texans on Sunday. We'll see how this week goes, but for now, we're expecting QB Trey Lance to get the Week 17 start. Lance's rushing ability gives him fantasy upside -- but he'd be a downgrade for Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle.

Niners QB Jimmy Garoppolo sat out Monday's practice with a right thumb injury he's believed to have sustained early in Thursday night's game at Tennessee, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury. Garoppolo completed that game, so we'll see whether this issue affects his Week 17 status or if the team is just opening a long practice week in cautious fashion.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that it's thought to be "a more significant injury" than a right thumb sprain. We'll see how this week goes for him.

49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) is not listed on the final injury report and will return for Sunday's game against the Bears. QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but Lance could steal a handful of snaps.
