49ers HC Kyle Shanahan was rather unenthusiastic when asked whether QB Jimmy Garoppolo will remain his starter in Week 8. “I would guess so," Shanahan said. "We had two QBs hurting this week. Jimmy was able to come back and play. We'll see if Trey [Lance] can next week, we're still not sure yet, but I got a lot of things to figure out.” Garoppolo mustered just 181 passing yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs in Sunday night's loss to the Colts -- although, in his defense, the game was played in messy weather. Regardless, expect to see Lance back under center for San Francisco at some point this season. We'll see when rookie is ready to return from his knee injury.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) is off the final injury report and will start Sunday night's game against the Colts. QB Trey Lance has been ruled out with his knee injury, so he won't vulture any snaps from Garoppolo.

49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) was limited and is expected to be a full-go later this week, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Garoppolo remains in line to start Sunday night's game vs. the Colts.

49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) did not practice on Monday. QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) was out there and looked good according to media members in attendance. At this point, bank on Garoppolo starting this weekend's game against the Colts. That'd be good news for WR Deebo Samuel.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday that he expects QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) to be ready coming out of the Week 6 bye. “I mean, he’s doing good,” Shanahan said. “We’ll see when we get back [after the bye week]. I think he’ll be ready to go next week when we get back. That’s the plan. I know he’s doing a lot better now than he was last week.” Shanahan has consistently said that a healthy Garoppolo remains his starter. And, frankly, QB Trey Lance didn't play well enough in last week's loss to the Cardinals to change that.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that QB Trey Lance has a sprained left knee. Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports that Lance said he didn't know when the injury occurred and didn't feel it until he went to bed Sunday night. San Francisco has a Week 6 bye, but Barrows reports he's "questionable" for the Week 7 game against the Colts. With Jimmy Garropolo likely ready to return from his calf injury, we'd bet on the veteran reclaiming his job in Week 7. We'll see as the game draws closer.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cardinals. He’ll get a Week 6 bye to heal up. But QB Trey Lance gets his 1st career start this weekend. He’s been shaky as a passer in the preseason and the 2nd half of last week’s game. But his high-end rushing ability gives him QB1 upside.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) missed practice again on Thursday. It continues to look like QB Trey Lance will get his 1st career start vs. Arizona this weekend. We'll see if Garoppolo can get on the practice field tomorrow.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) did not practice on Wednesday. QB Trey Lance took the 1st-team reps. HC Kyle Shanahan still believes Garoppolo has a shot to play vs. the Cardinals this weekend, but Lance seems like the odds-on favorite to be under center for that one.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has been diagnosed with a calf contusion and has a chance to play vs. the Cardinals on Sunday, HC Kyle Shanahan said. "It wasn't as bad as we thought it might have been," Shanahan added. "Definitely better news today than the feeling we had last night." We'll keep an eye on Garoppolo's status this week. It's worth noting that the 'Niners have a Week 6 bye, so they could get Garoppolo extended rest if they hold him out this week.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo told reporters that he suffered a right calf injury in the 1st series of Sunday's loss to the Seahawks. "Tweaked a calf," Garoppolo said. "It hurt initially. I thought I could keep trying to go in. It just kept getting worse and worse, traveling down to the Achilles a little bit." Garoppolo doesn't believe he injured his Achilles but is set for an MRI on Monday. "I'm hopeful it'll just be a couple weeks or something like that," he added. It sounds like we should expect QB Trey Lance to start next weekend's game vs. the Cardinals. The 'Niners then get a Week 6 bye.

The 49ers opened the 2nd half of Sunday's game against the Seahawks with QB Trey Lance behind center. Jimmy Garoppolo reportedly has a calf injury and is questionable to return. Garoppolo was on the sideline, though, with an earpiece in. So it doesn't appear the Niners plan to try to get him back into the game -- barring injury to Lance, of course. We'll see where this goes.

Update: ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Garoppolo will have an MRI and told reporters that he hopes "it's just a couple of weeks or something."

49ers QB Trey Lance (finger) was limited in practice all week but isn't listed on the final injury report. We presume he'll be active for Sunday's opener against the Lions, although it's unclear exactly what kind of role he'll have behind starter Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance obviously isn't a Week 1 fantasy option; Garoppolo is only in play in 2-QB leagues.

49ers QB Trey Lance (finger) got in a limited practice on Wednesday. QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start this weekend's opener vs. Detroit, but it remains to be seen if Lance will be ready for a Taysom Hill-esque role behind Garoppolo.

49ers QB Trey Lance is "trending in the right direction" in his recovery from a small chip to 1 of the fingers on his right hand, GM John Lynch said Wednesday. The 'Niners are still hoping to get Lance back at practice on Monday -- although Lynch admitted that's "kind of the optimistic" timetable. This injury has likely killed any chance Lance had of winning the Week 1 starting job. But we're still expecting to see the rookie under center by the midway point of the season.

49ers QB Trey Lance has a small “chip” in his finger, per HC Kyle Shanahan. The rookie is expected to miss about 1 week. That puts him back in time for Week 1. Even if Jimmy Garoppolo starts, the preseason showed us that the Niners might give Lance a handful of snaps right away.

Niners HC Kyle Shanahan told reporters Sunday that there is no imminent plan to increase 1st-team reps or QB Trey Lance. “I don’t know,” Shanahan said, according to Pro Football Talk. “I haven’t really defined that for myself either. Just when I think it feels right, when he seems ready, when I think the team seems ready. I mean, we’ll continue to mix him in there. But I don’t plan on just doing that completely." Lance completed 5 of 14 passes in his preseason debut Saturday, including an 80-yard TD to WR Trent Sherfield on his 2nd throw. Shanahan said after the game that the rookie produced "some good and some bad" in his 1st action.

Niners GM John Lynch told ESPN's Adam Schefter Tuesday that QB Jimmy Garoppolo is "playing his best football since he's been here; it's something everyone's recognizing." The change from Garoppolo to Trey Lance -- who has been generating buzz lately -- is inevitable. But fantasy drafters should realize that Garoppolo remains the leader to open the season behind center in San Francisco.

49ers QB Trey Lance got reps with the 1st-team offense in team drills on Tuesday for the 1st time in training camp. The rookie has been out-playing QB Jimmy Garoppolo by all accounts -- and it looks like he's getting rewarded. While HC Kyle Shanahan has still said that Garoppolo is his starter, it might simply become impossible to keep Lance off the field. We'll see how preseason goes, but bet on seeing Lance under center for San Francisco early on this season, if not by Week 1. He's a high-upside fantasy pick.

According to 49ers beat writer Matt Barrows, “the notion that [Trey] Lance could overtake [Jimmy] Garoppolo early in the season, which seemed so farfetched on draft day and after OTAs, appears far more realistic today.” Lance’s aggressiveness and athleticism have stood out through 4 practices. Of course, that’s a tiny sample size. But the 20-year-old — with only 17 college starts — appears on track for early-season starts. We like Lance as a QB2 stash given his rushing ability and the weapons in San Francisco.
