QB: Jimmy Garoppolo

Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) remained sidelined on Thursday.

Coach Kyle Shanahan has tried to claim there is a chance Garoppolo still starts this week, but it is looking extremely unlikely. It remains quite possible Jimmy G misses more than one game, and that he has made his final start for the 49ers. Garoppolo will probably be formally ruled out for Week 5 on Friday.
