Report: Garoppolo expected to play vs. Packers, won't be at 100%
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to play in Saturday's divisional-round game against the Green Bay Packers despite thumb and shoulder injuries, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.
However, Garoppolo, who has a torn ligament and bone chip in his thumb, reportedly won't be 100% for the playoff matchup.
The veteran suffered the shoulder injury in the second quarter of Sunday's wild-card win over the Dallas Cowboys but managed to finish the game.
Garoppolo sat out Week 17 after injuring his thumb.
"Yeah, we'll feel it out throughout the week, but yeah, just feeling good right now," he said Tuesday when asked about his status.
Garoppolo returned to practice Wednesday and was seen throwing.
The 30-year-old is in his fifth season with the 49ers and looking to lead the team to its second Super Bowl appearance in three years.
