49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo left Sunday’s loss to the Seahawks at halftime and head coach Kyle Shanahan shared some details about the decision to replace him after the game.

Shanahan said Garoppolo had his calf stepped on at some point in the first half and that he was able to play through the injury until halftime. He wasn’t able to push off the calf when warming up for the second half, however, and the 49ers decided to go with Trey Lance.

More will be known about Garoppolo’s status in the coming days and Shanahan didn’t offer any guesses about his Week Five availability at his press conference.

Left tackle Trent Williams also left the game in the fourth quarter. It was called an elbow injury during the game, but Shanahan said it is actually a shoulder injury and he is “concerned” about it because Williams could not return to action.

  1. This is not good news for the 49ers. I know the fan base wants to see Trey Lance but I question whether or not he’s ready. You have to keep in mind how few games he started in college, the smaller school he came from, and he basically sat out all of last season. It’s asking an awful lot to have him be your starter going forward. He might struggle until he starts figuring out how his skills fit in the NFL game. Hopefully he can count on his legs to win a few battles as he grows into it.

  2. Lance gets to go up against one of the best defenses in the league for his first career start. AZ is going to put a beating on Lance esp if Williams cannot go, things could get ugly quick for Lance and SF next Sunday.

    Depends on what Kyle Shanahan comes up with. This is going to be a test for both of them and the 49ers. The season is on the line

    Last time I checked Shannahan is a football coach he isn’t David Copperfield. He couldn’t beat a bad SEA team today, SF isn’t beating AZ with a rookie QB and a backup in at LT.
