Jimmy Garoppolo Injury Updates | Shark Bites

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 was pulled in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Seahawks. He appeared to tweak his knee or ankle taking a sack on his final snap and headed back to the locker room with trainers. Garoppolo was horrible before exiting, throwing for 84 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT against a leaky Seattle defense. We'll see if Garoppolo is healthy enough to start Thursday night's game vs. the Packers -- and if San Francisco sticks with him.

Update: The 49ers announced Garoppolo with an ankle injury.

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 WR Deebo Samuel suffered a Jones Fracture in his foot during a throwing session with teammates on Tuesday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Samuel is undergoing surgery on Thursday and is expected to be sidelined for 12-16 weeks, per Rapoport. That timeline would have Samuel out until sometime between early September and early October. And Jones Fractures are tricky. We often see the injury aggravated or cause compensatory issues. Samuel just sunk down our WR rankings. His injury creates even more opportunity for 1st-round rookie WR Brandon Aiyuk.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has taken part in individual and 7-on-7 drills in OTAs this week but been held out of full-team work. HC Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo won't be fully cleared from last September's torn ACL until training camp. Garoppolo seems happy with his progress, though, noting that he's lifting more and no longer experience swelling in that surgically repaired knee. He'll be over 11 months removed from the injury when the 2019 season kicks off.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said in the post-game press conference that the team "fears" a torn ACL for Jimmy Garoppolo. That'd be a season-ending injury for the $137 million QB. Garoppolo will undergo additional tests to confirm the initial diagnosis, and we should get another update tomorrow. The downgrade to backup QB C.J. Beathard is obviously significant, so this is a big blow to all of San Francisco's skill-position guys.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo exited with a left knee injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He was carted back to the locker room and "visibly upset," according to insider Matt Maiocco. We'll update Garoppolo's status as soon as we know more. QB C.J. Beathard has entered the game for San Francisco.

Patriots HC Bill Belichick suggested that QB Jimmy Garoppolo could be a game-time decision for Thursday night's meeting with the Texans. “Could be, sure,” Belichick said. “It would depend on the situation. It would depend on a lot of things. It’s possible. Sure.” Garoppolo's injury is to his throwing shoulder, so it's tough to imagine his playing and being effective 4 days after getting hurt. This is probably a case of the Patriots being the Patriots. We're still expecting QB Jacoby Brissett to start on Thursday, but we'll continue to monitor the situation.

Patriots QB Jimmy Garoppolo left Sunday’s game in the 2nd quarter with a right shoulder injury. Rookie Jacoby Brissett took over under center. Garoppolo is officially questionable to return.

Update: Garoppolo has been ruled out.
