Jimmy Garoppolo wasn’t the only factor the 49ers lost their 4th straight video game on Sunday night, however his 3 turnovers — consisting of 2 late interceptions — assisted seal the offer. Now, he may be out as the group’s beginning quarterback. Asked after San Francisco’s 30-18 loss to the Colts if Garoppolo will stay under center for Week 8 versus the Bears, coach Kyle Shanahan was noncommittal.

“Well, that … I would guess so,” he stated. “You know, I’m gonna watch this tape and see if guys are healthy, first of all, and know where our guys are at. It was good for Jimmy to get healthy enough to play in this game tonight.”

Pressed to clarify the 49ers’ technique at QB this coming week, Shanahan showed a switch back to novice Trey Lance is certainly in the cards, so long as Lance — who missed out on Sunday’s video game with a knee injury — is healthy.

“I got a whole team to worry about, I’m not just thinking about the quarterback situation right now,” Shanahan informed press reporters. “I’m gonna evaluate everything, see where our team’s at, see who gives us the best chance to beat Chicago and see what our options are … We had two quarterbacks who were hurting this week. Jimmy was able to come back and play. We’ll see if Trey can next week. Still not sure yet.”

Lance, the group’s valued addition and greatest financial investment of the 2021 offseason, got his very first NFL start in location of Garoppolo in Week 5, when the latter was sidelined with a calf injury. While he discovered success on the ground, he coped the air in a 17-10 loss to the Cardinals, which preceded the 49ers’ bye. Garoppolo, on the other hand, has actually produced blended lead to his 5 starts.

Following the loss, Garoppolo showed he’s not completely recuperated from his ideal calf injury that kept him out versus Arizona: “It held up, I’ll say. I definitely felt it at times. But it sort of is what it is. I think all the guys out there, we’re all playing with something right now.”
