49ers coach Kyle Shanahan thinks Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) could be ready for OTAs.
"I’m hoping he’ll get into OTAs and do some non-contact stuff," Shanahan said. "It’s always a little bit better when you’re dealing with a quarterback as opposed to other positions because you can get them in 7-on-7 drills, which helps those guys get involved a lot faster." Garoppolo tore his ACL in Week 3. He'll be eight months removed from surgery for the start of OTAs. The 49ers will move Garoppolo slowly, but barring setbacks, he should have a chance at getting in some limited offseason reps. Oct 5 - 8:11 PM

Jimmy Garoppolo underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL on Wednesday.

Garoppolo tore his left ACL late in the Niners' Week 3 loss to Kansas City. He'll miss the rest of the year but should be back for the start of next season. With Garoppolo out of commission, quarterback duties in San Francisco will fall to 2017 third-rounder C.J. Beathard.
Oct 3 - 5:40 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports an MRI has confirmed Jimmy Garoppolo's initial diagnosis of a torn left ACL.

Garoppolo is also believed to have MCL damage, but that's yet to be confirmed. That would threaten to delay his surgery. It's the worst news the 49ers could have gotten this season. Garoppolo's play was a little shakier than it was in 2017, but he was still performing at a high level with obvious room for improvement. His loss essentially pauses the 49ers' rebuild. 2018 is going to have a hard time not feeling like a wasted year in San Francisco. 2017 third-rounder C.J. Beathard will finish the year under center. When he's next in the huddle, Garoppolo will be 27 years old with just 10 career starts.
Sep 24 - 3:09 PM

49ers GM John Lynch told NBC Sports' Peter King "all indications" suggest Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL.

It is the same thing coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "Our [medical] guys say they’ve been wrong before and so they need to do the MRI, obviously," Lynch added, but it would be a shock if Garoppolo is dealing with anything less than a season-ending injury. C.J. Beathard should be the 49ers' starter the rest of the way.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said the team is "fearing" an ACL tear for Jimmy Garoppolo.

Garoppolo took a big hit along the sidelines late in the fourth quarter of San Francisco's Week 3 loss. It originally seemed like he could be dealing with a concussion, but he ended up being carted to the locker room with his left leg extended straight in front of him. If it is actually an ACL, Garoppolo will be the second offensive star the 49ers lose to an ACL tear after Jerick McKinnon suffered the same injury in the preseason. Brutal.

Jimmy Garoppolo was carted to the locker room with a knee injury late in the fourth quarter Week 3 against the Chiefs.

Garoppolo decided to stay in bounds at the end of a fourth-quarter run and ended up taking a big hit on the sideline. Trainers appeared to be examining his left leg -- not his head -- on the sidelines, and that leg was extended straight out in front of him on the cart. Garoppolo had an up-and-down game before exiting, but he led the 49ers back in the second half. He finished the day with 251 yards and two scores.
Sep 23 - 4:09 PM

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 18-of-26 passes for 206 yards and two touchdowns while contributing four yards on three carries Sunday in the 49ers’ Week 2 win over the Lions.

Jimmy G also took six sacks for a loss of 50 yards. Garoppolo dialed up a sideline pass to a wide-open Kendrick Bourne for his first touchdown of the day early in the second quarter. He added to his touchdown tally with another score in the third quarter, this time connecting with tight end Garrett Celek for 11 yards. Garoppolo narrowly avoided disaster in the fourth as a Tracy Walker interception was negated by a holding call on Quandre Diggs. That interception would have set the Lions up with first-and-goal and a chance to take the lead with just over two minutes remaining. As his six sacks would attest to, Garoppolo often held on to the ball too long, though all in all, Sunday was a much better performance than his last one against the Vikings in Week 1. Now 8-1 as an NFL starting quarterback, Handsome Jimmy will head to KC next week for a shootout with Patrick Mahomes and the 2-0 Chiefs.
Sep 16 - 8:01 PM

Jimmy Garoppolo completed just 15-of-33 passes for 261 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the 49ers' 24-16, Week 1 loss to the Vikings.

This marks Garoppolo's first career loss after opening 7-0 as a starter. Garoppolo tried to lead a comeback with the Vikings up by 18 deep into the third quarter, but the red-zone offense left a lot to be desired Sunday. Garoppolo missed a wide-open George Kittle on a would-be four-yard touchdown and earlier overshot Kittle on a deep ball after he beat Harrison Smith. Garoppolo also had a possible 80-yard TD dropped by Kittle. His touchdown was a beautiful 22-yard hookup with rookie Dante Pettis after Garoppolo spun out of a sack. He missed too many throws in this one, however, though it was a very tough road date with one of the league's best defenses. The Niners will host the Lions in their home opener next Sunday. Garoppolo will be a back-end QB1.
Sep 9 - 4:15 PM

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 9-of-19 passes for 135 yards in the 49ers' third preseason game.

It was an uneventful afternoon tilt against the Colts. Garoppolo is now 22-of-37 (59.5%) for 305 yards (8.2 YPA) with one touchdown. It's been a trying offseason for the 49ers' offense by all accounts, as Garoppolo has been unable to get in sync with anyone not named Marquise Goodwin. We still like Garoppolo as a back-end QB1. However, Week 1 at Minnesota will be tough.
Aug 25 - 7:01 PM

Jimmy Garoppolo is due $42.6 million in the first year of his five-year, $137.5 million contract.

The 49ers have over $60 million in available cap space, so it makes sense for them to front-load Garoppolo's contract. Garoppolo will then earn $18.6 million in 2019 before taking home another $25.2 million in 2020. It's a huge financial commitment for a player who's made just seven career starts, but if Garoppolo plays the way he did last season, he'll be worth the money.
Feb 9 - 1:49 PM

49ers signed QB Jimmy Garoppolo to a five-year, $137.5 million contract.

In terms of average-annual value — $27.5 million — it makes Garoppolo the highest-paid player in NFL history. That's at least until Kirk Cousins hits free agency. Going on 27, Garoppolo has made only seven career starts, but he has won all of them. He was a wonder in his six 2017 49ers appearances, completing 67.4 percent of his 178 passes while averaging 8.8 yards per attempt. This, with Marquise Goodwin as his No. 1 receiver. Garoppolo's signature is his lightning-quick release. It allows him to attempt throws other quarterbacks would not dream of. The money is eye-popping for someone with so little regular season experience, but Garoppolo should validate the 49ers' trust in 2018.
Feb 8 - 1:31 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that contract talks between the 49ers and impending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo have "gained significant momentum."

Rapoport cautions that there is "still work to be done" over the next several days, but all signs point to Garoppolo avoiding the $23.555 million franchise tag. After three and a half years of holding Tom Brady's clipboard in New England, Garoppolo finally got a chance to start following his midseason trade to San Francisco, leading the Niners to a perfect 5-0 record down the stretch. The 26-year-old's new deal should be worth at least $20 million annually.
Feb 4 - 8:11 AM

49ers GM John Lynch confirmed he wants to extend free agent Jimmy Garoppolo.

"We believe we found the right guy. Now the challenge is getting Jimmy signed. We’re working hard toward that. It makes too much sense for it not to happen. Just a matter of getting it done." The 49ers are committed to Garoppolo and look prepared to give him top-15 quarterback money ($20M-plus annually). Garoppolo will be franchised if a deal isn't reached before early March.
Jan 24 - 6:22 PM

NBC Bay Area's Matt Maiocco believes there's "confidence on both sides" a deal will be reached with free agent Jimmy Garoppolo.

The 49ers planned to franchise Garoppolo, but he's put himself in position for a multi-year extension after going undefeated in five starts down the stretch. Despite interest on both sides, Garoppolo's contract could be complicated by his limited body of work. If the 49ers can't reach a deal, Garoppolo will make $25 million under the tag in 2018.
Jan 13 - 4:05 PM

Jimmy Garroppolo completed 20-of-33 passes for 292 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Rams.

Garoppolo completely re-energized an organization and a fanbase with five wins in five starts after the 49ers went 3-24 over the past two seasons prior to him starting. Over that span, Garoppolo led the NFL in passing yards (1,542) while averaging a gaudy 8.8 yards per pass attempt. Although Garoppolo’s contract is up at the end of the season and he has put himself in a position not to take a compromised deal, he will undoubtedly be a member of the 49ers in 2018. The club can retain him through the franchise tag at minimum, but a true offseason extension is the highest probable outcome for both sides with the 49ers having so much cap room at their disposal. Paired with a full offseason in Kyle Shanahan’s offense, Garoppolo will be a popular choice to be the favorite wait on quarterback selection in fantasy circles entering 2018.
