For the second week in a row, Nick Mullens will be the starting quarterback for the 49ers.

Jimmy Garoppolo will miss Sunday night’s game against the Eagles as he continues to recover from a Week Two ankle injury, the team has confirmed. Mullens, who played very well in Week Three, will again start in Garoppolo’s place.

Also out for the injury-plagued 49ers are running back Raheem Mostert, cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon, linebacker Dre Greenlaw and tight end Jordan Reed. The 49ers did get some good injury news, as tight end George Kittle and wide receiver Deebo Samuel are both back and expected to play.

Despite their long list of injuries, the 49ers are seven-point favorites against the Eagles.

  1. Garoppolo,Cousins and the likes are the new age overachievers in terms of renumeration based on talent

  2. Jimmy G is good but not great. With the appropriate weapons around him he is a good game manager. There isn’t that many QB’s who are game changers like a Mahomes, so they should be lucky with what they have. It could be worse, Haskins could be your QB.

  3. No need to hurry Garoppolo in. With very few starts, Nick Mullens is already playing at a starter level. When the tough part of the schedule begins in a few weeks, the 9ers will have two solid starting QB’s and an offense that will hold up its end for the defense.

  4. Didn’t the 49ers lose the super bowl last season, then why do they get such an easy schedule this season?

    The Eagles have been a playoff team for years genius and WON the Super Bowl 3 years ago.

  6. Based on the 2019 win-loss records, the Forty Niners have the4th toughest schedule this season.

    Oddly enough, the 3 toughest schedules are Dolphins, Jets, Patriots.

  7. Trap game for the 49ers, have to be careful with this one. Kittle and Deebo coming back is great news.

  8. We’ll trade ya Cousins for Wentz…straight up.
    Sincerely,
    A jaded, PO’ed, angry, bitter, hateful, spiteful, and sad Vikings Fan.

  9. You cannot rush a player you paying that much $ back on the stage. If this turns into something worse because they pushed him back on the field…. that is not where you want to be.

    If the 49ers win, fickle fans in Philly will turn on Wentz even more…

    Will we? I’m pretty realistic about this game. Eagles top 4 wrs are out. They only had 1 healthy wr at practice yesterday. Dallas goedert is out as well. Also a couple linemen and only have 3 healthy cornerbacks. It’s funny how the article said despite the niners long injury list, theyre still favorites. Funny how he didn’t mention that the eagles injury list is even longer.

  11. JimmyG is serviceable. I rather have him than Haskins today, but Haskins has more upside.
    Imagine paying top dollar for Rivers who’s only getting worse and was never a top10 QB in the first place.

  12. 49ers fans really thought they could run it back and win the SB with a mediocre QB made of glass
