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.

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.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to miss at least the next 6 weeks with what has been deemed a high-ankle injury. The QB could remain out even longer if his injury winds up requiring surgery, according to Schefter. Garoppolo obviously doesn't belong on any redraft fantasy football rosters during this span. QB Nick Mullens is in play for deeper leagues, including 2-QB and superflex formats. We'll see, though, whether he can hold the job. C.J. Beathard relieved Mullens in the Week 4 loss to Philadelphia and then Garoppolo in the following week's loss to the Dolphins.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) is out for Sunday night’s game against the Eagles. QB Nick Mullens gets another start and is on the radar in 2-QB and superflex leagues after chucking for 343 yards and a score last week.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo remained sidelined on Wednesday. That's not a good start in his quest to return for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles. QB Nick Mullens played well in Garoppolo's absence last week, completing 25 of 36 passes for 343 yards, 1 TD and 0 INTs.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan confirmed that QB Nick Mullens will start Sunday's game against the Giants. QB Jimmy Garoppolo's status for Week 4 and beyond remains uncertain with that high-ankle sprain. Mullens played well in 8 starts back in 2018, but he's just a lower-end QB2 for Week 3.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that QB Nick Mullens "most likely" will start against the Giants this weekend. QB Jimmy Garoppolo hasn't been ruled out with his high-ankle sprain just yet, but it sounds like he'll miss at least 1 game. Mullens was solid in 8 starts back in 2018, completing 64% of his passes, averaging 8.3 yards per attempt and averaging 285 yards and 1.6 TDs per game. He's just a QB2 in fantasy but should be able to keep this offense on schedule.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan says QB Jimmy Garoppolo's high-ankle sprain isn't serious, according to multiple reports. The team considers Garoppolo week to week, and he might have a shot to play the Giants this Sunday. We'll see how the week goes for Garoppolo. Nick Mullens would start if Garoppolo misses further time.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports. Garoppolo was able to play through the injury during the 1st half of the win over the Jets before sitting out the 2nd. Skill guys tend to miss multiple games with this injury, but perhaps the QB can return for Week 3. If not, San Francisco will turn to QB Nick Mullens, who completed 8 of 11 passes for 71 yards and a score in relief of Garoppolo today. In 8 starts back in 2018, Mullens averaged 285 yards and 1.6 TDs per game.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a right ankle injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets. He finished that half but will not play in the 2nd, the team announced. This might be a case of San Francisco playing it safe with a 21-3 lead. We'll look for updates on Garoppolo's status after the game. QB Nick Mullens is in for the 49ers.

49ers QB Nick Mullens will start Monday night's game against the Giants. Mullens played better than anyone could have expected in his debut last Thursday, completing 16 of 22 passes for 262 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. His 151.9 passer rating was the best in NFL history in a QB debut with 16+ pass attempts. The outing said just as much about Oakland's defense as Mullens' ability, though. He's just a low-end QB2 for Week 10.
