UPDATE: Jimmy Garoppolo Could Return This Season
NFL Week 13 - According to a report from ESPN's Adam Schefter, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo avoided any ligament damage in his foot and will avoid surgery. While Garoppolo is still expected to miss significant time, a smooth rehab would give him a chance to return in seven to eight weeks. The Divisional round of the NFL playoffs would mark seven weeks from the day Garoppolo was injured. It is still more likely Garoppolo is out for the season, but the 49ers receiving best-possible injury news now opens up the chance to return.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan announced that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a season-ending foot injury during Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner.
Garoppolo exited on the first drive of Sunday's game against the Dolphins. Garoppolo's DVOA ranked third among all quarterbacks in the league, and his 27.2% mark would be his best-ever mark for a season as a starter.
Garoppolo was replaced by Brock Purdy, who finished 25-for-37 for 210 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. San Francisco also rushed 34 times today, led by Christian McCaffrey with 17 attempts for 66 yards.
