Jimmy Garoppolo Making Progress In Return From ACL 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed May 22, 2019 3:59 pm

Jimmy Garoppolo participated in individual and 7-on-7 drills with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday, but skipped team drills. Garoppolo suffered a torn ACL on Sept. 23.

Garoppolo will not be cleared for full team work until training camp in part because the team doesn\'t want to risk having defenders around Garoppolo\'s legs during offseason work.

\"I think he\'s handling it as well as he can,\" Kyle Shanahan said. \"He\'s getting used to it. It\'s just a long process when you recover from an ACL, and he gets as much work as he can get in. I know he\'d love to be out there for every rep, but he knows that he can\'t, so he\'s trying to make the most of his 7-on-7 and do as much work in every other aspect as he can.\"
