Thursday update: Garoppolo has been removed from the injury report and will start against the Packers despite lingering ailments to his thumb and shoulder.
Wednesday update: Garoppolo was upgraded to full on Wednesday and is on track to play in the 49ers Divisional Round game against the Packers.
Tuesday update: Garoppolo was actually limited at practice Tuesday as he deals with a thumb and shoulder injury, despite an earlier report suggesting he wasn’t practicing. The 49ers QB is expected to play, but there will be more clarity on his status in the coming days.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a sprained throwing shoulder in their Wild Card win over the Cowboys on Sunday, per Matt Barrows. Garoppolo already was dealing with a hand injury that he has played through the last two games.
Garoppolo completed 16-of-25 passes for 172 yards, zero touchdowns, and one interception against the Cowboys. It wasn’t pretty and there were errant passes that could be attributed to his hand or shoulder injury. But, it doesn’t sound like Garoppolo is going to miss any time, as head coach Kyle Shanahan said that he would be able to practice this week.
Fantasy football implications
The 49ers head to Green Bay to take on the No. 1 seed Packers this weekend. We probably shouldn’t count on Garoppolo in DFS or fantasy, especially as these injuries accumulate. The team will continue to try to win with short passes, defense and the run game.
