San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a right shoulder sprain during Sunday's win against the Dallas Cowboys, head coach Kyle Shanahan announced Monday, according to The Athletic.

Shanahan expects Garoppolo to practice this week before San Francisco visits the Green Bay Packers in the divisional round Saturday.

Garoppolo suffered the injury in the second quarter versus Dallas. The 30-year-old, who didn't miss any offensive snaps in the game, finished the contest with 172 yards and no touchdowns against one interception on 16-of-25 passing.

He missed two games during the regular season due to calf and thumb injuries. Rookie Trey Lance, the third overall pick in the 2021 draft, replaced him in those contests, going 1-1 as a starter.

Shanahan also said there's a good chance star linebacker Fred Warner will be available to face the Packers. Warner couldn't finish the game against the Cowboys due to a low ankle sprain.
