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.
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.
