49ers’ Garoppolo regains starting role vs. Dolphins in 2020 Week 5

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The San Francisco 49ers will get a boost to their offense this Sunday. The 49ers will have Jimmy Garoppolo back as the team’s starter.

Garoppolo has missed the 49ers last two games with an injury. He left the team’s Week 2 game against the New York Jets with a high ankle sprain.

He practiced with the team on Wednesday. Nick Mullens and C.J. Beathard filled in for Garoppolo while he was out with an injury.

On Sunday in a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, Beathard replaced Mullens late in the fourth quarter.

“He did a good job,” Head Coach Kyle Shanahan said of Garoppolo’s efforts in practice this week, according to ESPN’s Nick Wagoner. “Each day it got better, never felt too sore the next day, so we needed to hear that today and see him out there today and we feel good to go and he’ll be starting Sunday.”

Beathard is expected to serve as the team’s backup behind Garoppolo on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

Mullens was 1-1 in his two starts while Garoppolo was out of the lineup. He went 51 of 73 for 614 yards, while also throwing touchdown passes and three interceptions.

Garoppolo also has a 1-1 record, like Mullens. He went 33 of 49 for 390 yards, while throwing four touchdown passes.

Beathard in very limited action has gone 14 of 19 for 138 yards.
