Earlier in the week, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that Jimmy Garoppolo had a slight shoulder sprain in his throwing arm. Thursday, it was a different story. Garoppolo participated fully in practice, and Shanahan said he “threw the ball great.”

Garoppolo’s thumb injury on his throwing hand seems to be the issue that’s bothering him most. He missed the team’s Week 17 matchup with the Texans due to the thumb issue.

Garoppolo’s postseason performance was down from his 257.4 passing yards per game this season. He ended the regular season with 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions through 15 games.
