Jimmy Garoppolo suffered an injury to the ulnar cruciate ligament of his right thumb and also a fracture in the same thumb. Jimmy Garoppolo is currently unsure whether he will play against Houston Texans.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan stated that Jimmy Garoppolo was injured when he was sacked in the second quarter of the game. Although he insisted on finishing the game, Jimmy Garoppolo was intercepted two passes afterwards and made a mistake in the first half, failing to connect with unmarked full back Kyle Juszczyk.

Jimmy Garoppolo completed 26 passes in 35 passes, advanced 322 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions.

“We know that the thumb has an impact.” Kyle Shanahan said, “At the time we could feel that Jimmy Garoppolo was injured in the game, and Jimmy Garoppolo told us immediately after he came to the bench.”

If Jimmy Garoppolo can’t recover in time, Trey Lance is expected to start.

The San Francisco 49ers must activate Dee Ford to the roster before Wednesday afternoon to open the 21-day training window. But Dee Ford’s health does not meet the conditions, so the team decided to keep Dee Ford on the injury reserve list.

This is also likely to be Dee Ford’s last season with the San Francisco 49ers. Coach Kyle Shanahan said that the team will wait until the off season to make a decision, but Dee Ford may also plan to retire.

Dee Ford will not undergo more operations. What Dee Ford mainly needs now is recuperation. Kyle Shanahan said Dee Ford will return to Kansas City to recover.

Dee Ford was traded to the San Francisco 49ers by Kansas City Chiefs in the 2019 off-season, and then signed a five-year $85 million contract with the team. In the past three seasons, Dee Ford has only played 18 games for the San Francisco 49ers due to injuries.
