Jimmy Garoppolo still has a right shoulder injury

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is healthy, unless he isn’t.

Garoppolo, who is practicing against with the team after being relegated to pariah status for the first month of training camp, officially appeared on the injury report every day this week as having a right shoulder injury.

He fully participated in practice, and he has no designation for Sunday’s game at Chicago. That means he’s good to go.

Coach Kyle Shanahan, who presumably is fully aware of the condition of every player on his team, feigned ignorance over Garoppolo’s injury.

“I have no clue, I didn’t even know that he was,” Shanahan said. “Maybe old lingering stuff, I’m not sure. Procedural stuff.”

It likely means Garoppolo is still receiving some sort of official treatment from the team, for the surgically-repaired shoulder. Regardless, he’s good to go and real to play if/when the 49ers need him.

The question continues to be whether they’ll only need him in the event of injury, or whether they’d consider benching non-captain Trey Lance, if he struggles.

  1. This story line is really getting old and lame. Enough already just go with Lance and be done with it.

  2. If Lance struggles this year is should happen after 4+ games, once teams have tape and tendency on him.
    If he struggles out the gate, doubtful, he is in for a short career.

  4. how horrible is it that sf is going to sit on this guy’s career till they make a profit?
    .
    they don’t want him, but they don’t want him in Seattle even more.

  5. its almost as if he was rehabbing from that same shoulder a week ago at the corner of practice by himself.
