Could be released without penalty

Latest Headline: Published 2023-05-28

Garoppolo's three-year, $72.75 million contract with the Raiders contains a clause that would allow Las Vegas to release him without penalty if he's unable to pass a physical due to his surgically repaired foot, Tashan Reed and Vic Tafur of The Athletic report.

Garoppolo fractured his left foot while playing with the 49ers in early December, then underwent surgery in March, shortly after he finalized his contract with Las Vegas. According to a waiver and release clause in the deal, Garoppolo acknowledged the risk of further injury while continuing to play upon his return from surgery, and he also waived any responsibility on the part of the Raiders, who can terminate his contract with no further obligation or financial ramifications. The waiver becomes null and void if Garoppolo passes a physical at any point during the 2023 season, however. While the terms of the deal give the Raiders an easy out to move on from Garoppolo if his recovery doesn't proceed as anticipated, the team won't have much in the way of appealing alternatives. The Raiders are left with 37-year-old journeyman Brian Hoyer, fourth-round rookie Aidan O'Connell and 2022 undrafted free agent Chase Garbers as the other signal-callers on the roster, and Carson Wentz, Matt Ryan, Teddy Bridgewater and Joe Flacco are the most experienced options among an uninspiring crop of quarterbacks on the free-agent market.

Recovering from March surgery

Latest Headline: Published 2023-05-25

Garoppolo had foot surgery in March, shortly after signing with the Raiders, Tashan Reed and Vic Tafur of The Athletic report.

Coach Josh McDaniels didn't provide a timeline or details, though he told reporters Garoppolo's absence from spring practices was expected. The Raiders apparently discovered that the QB needed surgery during a physical exam, after he'd avoided going under the knife in December when he suffered the left foot fracture. The 31-year-old never returned from the injury last season but might've been able to do so had the 49ers won one more game and reached the Super Bowl. His new team is confident Garoppolo will be ready for Week 1, and it helps that both he and backup quarterback Brian Hoyer have played in McDaniels' offenses before.

Not practicing yet

Latest Headline: Published 2023-05-25

Garoppolo (foot) hasn't been practicing and may be out until training camp, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

Coach Josh McDaniels didn't say if Garoppolo had offseason surgery but did suggest that the quarterback's absence from OTA practices isn't any surprise to his new team, per Tashan Reed of The Athletic. While he avoided surgery on a broken left foot after suffering the injury in December, the 31-year-old never returned to action during the Niners' deep playoff run before signing a three-year, $67.5 million contract with the Raiders in March. Brian Hoyer figures to get most of the first-team reps with Garoppolo not practicing, backed up by rookie fourth-round pick Aidan O'Connell and 2022 UDFA Chase Garbers.

Contract with Las Vegas official

Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-17

Garoppolo (foot) officially signed with the Raiders on Friday.

When the agreement was announced Monday, it was reported to be a three-year, $67.5 million contract with $34 million in guarantees, per Adam Schefter of ESPN. Garoppolo thus will be Las Vegas' No. 1 quarterback in the post-Derek Carr era for the Raiders. While Garoppolo currently is rehabbing from a broken left foot that he suffered Week 13 of last season, he'll be throwing to the likes of wide receivers Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers once the 2023 campaign kicks off in September.

Set to join Vegas

Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-13

The Raiders agreed Monday to a contract with Garoppolo (foot), Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Per Schefter, Garoppolo's looming deal with the Raiders is a three-year, $67.5 million pact that includes $34 million guaranteed. In his new locale, Garoppolo is in line take over Las Vegas' starting QB slot, which had been vacated by the departure of Derek Carr, who is now with the Saints. In the process, Garoppolo is reunited with head coach Josh McDaniels, who worked with the signal-caller earlier in his career while the two were both with the Patriots.

Run in Bay Area likely over

Latest Headline: Published 2023-02-01

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that he doesn't expect Garoppolo (foot) to be a member of the 49ers for the 2023 season, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

It's been a whirlwind year for Garoppolo, who was shopped last offseason with the 49ers set to move on to 2021 first-round pick Trey Lance under center. However, Garoppolo's health was in limbo due to his recovery from surgery on his right throwing shoulder, and he eventually remained with the team after interested organizations settled their respective quarterback situations. When Lance suffered a season-ending right ankle injury Week 2, Garoppolo was pressed into action and held on to the starting role until he suffered a broken left foot Week 13, which allowed for the emergence of seventh-round rookie Brock Purdy (elbow). While both Lance and Purdy enter this offseason with health concerns, San Francisco's brass is comfortable with the pair moving forward, meaning Garoppolo will be allowed to test free agency once March arrives.

Super Bowl return still possible

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-28

Garoppolo (foot) has already been ruled out for Sunday's NFC Championship Game versus the Eagles, but the quarterback left the possibility open of returning for the Super Bowl if the 49ers advance, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Garoppolo's rehabilitation from a broken foot has been progressing well -- despite his unavailability for Sunday's tilt against the Eagles -- with the quarterback's only limitation being his ability to sprint at full speed. The veteran signal-caller will need the 49ers to advance past Philadelphia on Sunday in addition to his foot fully healing before Feb. 12 for him to suit up again this season. If that scenario unfolds and Garoppolo is good to go for the Super Bowl, he would likely be the backup to Brock Purdy given the latter's success this postseason.

Not returning Sunday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-27

Garoppolo (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Philadelphia, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Garoppolo had a small chance to gain clearance for this contest after suffering a fracture in his left foot Week 13. However, he underwent an X-ray on Tuesday and proceeded to sit out all three practices ahead of Sunday's contest. The 49ers thus will need to advance to the Super Bowl for Garoppolo to have a chance to be active again this season. In the meantime, seventh-round rookie Brock Purdy will continue to lead San Francisco's offense, with Josh Johnson backing him up.

Not expected to practice this week

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-25

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said Wednesday that Garoppolo (foot) isn't expected to practice ahead of Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Eagles, Jennifer Lee Chan of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Garoppolo underwent an X-ray on Tuesday, and while the results of the test remain unclear, the veteran quarterback looks like he'll still need some more time to heal before being cleared for game action. Though reports earlier in the week suggested Garoppolo was making great strides and would have a chance to be the backup behind Brock Purdy against the Eagles, the former appears set to remain sidelined for at least one more week with his broken left foot. In the meantime, Josh Johnson should continue operating as the No. 2 quarterback behind Purdy, who will attempt to move past a lackluster performance against Dallas in the divisional round.

Set for more tests Tuesday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-23

San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo will have an X-ray on his injured foot Tuesday, Eric Williams of reports.

Garoppolo broke his left foot Week 13 and appears to be in the final stages of rehab, as he resumed work on a side field during practice in advance of the divisional-round matchup against Dallas. The veteran quarterback will undergo another test Tuesday to confirm his progress, but Shanahan added that he'd be very surprised if Garoppolo was cleared for Sunday's NFC Championship Game. Meanwhile, Brock Purdy will continue to lead the 49ers offense, while Josh Johnson operates as the backup, but if the 49ers defeat the Eagles, Garoppolo may be able to serve as the No. 2 quarterback in a potential Super Bowl matchup, per Matt Barrows of The Athletic.

Not returning Sunday

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-20

Garoppolo (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's divisional-round contest against the Cowboys, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Having said that, coach Kyle Shanahan told David Lombardi of The Athletic on Friday that Garoppolo was able to resume working out on the side at practice this week, while adding there's an "outside chance" the quarterback is active if the 49ers advance to the NFC Championship Game. Garoppolo has entered the late stages of his recovery from a broken left foot that he sustained Week 13 against the Dolphins, which has caused him to miss the last six games. In the meantime, San Francisco's offense will continue to be directed by Brock Purdy, with Josh Johnson backing up the rookie seventh-round pick.

Could be back late in playoffs

Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-06

San Francisco head coach Kyle Shanahan said Friday that Garoppolo (foot) remains on track to be available late in the playoffs, if the 49ers are still alive, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.

Based on Shanahan's comments, a return in the NFC Championship Game or the Super Bowl would seem to be a realistic outcome for Garoppolo, who has recently been cleared to resume putting some weight on the left foot he fractured Dec. 4. Because he was able to avoid surgery to address the injury, Garoppolo has a chance to play again in the postseason, though given the length of his layoff in addition to how well rookie Brock Purdy has performed in his stead, the 31-year-old veteran may not be guaranteed to get his job back once he's medically cleared. Even if that's the case, having a battle-tested quarterback like Garoppolo available off the bench in a high-pressure playoff setting would still be a welcome development for the Niners.
