Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

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.
