There was no additional damage discovered when Garoppolo had ACL surgery in October and the hope is that he'll be ready to fully participate by the open of training camp

Summary

Last season, the 49ers struggled without Garoppolo after his early-season ACL tear, but managed to stay mostly afloat. Working down onto the second and third string, the team surprisingly finished 12th league-wide in net passing yardage. Coach Kyle Shanahan brings a creative offense to the table, one that can maximize a quarterback's strengths, and it's now Garoppolo's turn to take advantage over a full season. Undrafted backup Nick Mullens managed to top 275 yards in 4 of the team's last 5 games, and Garoppolo brings more talent to the table. That's not to mention the big offensive upgrades that have been installed since Garoppolo last took a snap. Tight end George Kittle has emerged as a superstar, while dynamic young wideouts Dante Pettis, Deebo Samuel, and Jalen Hurd offer a ton of explosiveness both inside and outside the formation. Garoppolo is still in recovery, but Shanahan fully expects him under center for Week 1. Part of a clustered bunch of QB2 names, Garoppolo is a better (and cheaper) stab at QB1 production than many of his peers. (May 11)

49ers | Jimmy Garoppolo on track for training camp (Tue Jun 11, 04:46 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) continues to participate in individual and seven-on-seven drills and appears as though he will be ready for the start of training camp, according to ESPN's Nick Wagoner.

Our View: Garoppolo made it three games in 2018 before going down with this knee injury. He has been limited in practice but is trending in the right direction. This seems like a make-or-break season for Garoppolo and the 49ers. He's got to stay healthy and play the franchise quarterback he was supposed to be when the team traded for him.
