LINE MOVEMENT
To remain starting QB
QBSan Francisco 49ers
October 25, 2021
Garoppolo is expected to start Sunday's game at Chicago, Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The playing conditions in San Francisco were less than ideal this past Sunday against the Colts, with heavy rain and wind impacting much of the contest. Garoppolo didn't fare well at all, completing 16 of 27 passes for 181 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions while losing one of his two fumbles in the 30-18 loss. There was some uncertainty from coach Kyle Shanahan afterward about Garoppolo's health, but his balky right calf passed a checkup Monday morning, giving Shanahan confidence that Garoppolo will remain atop the depth chart, according to Matt Barrows of The Athletic. Backup Trey Lance (knee) is in line to return to practice Wednesday, so the 49ers may soon have their QB alignment from the first three and a half games of the season (Garoppolo the starter, Lance mixing in occasionally).
