Garoppolo (shoulder) went through a throwing regimen on a side field at the same time as the 49ers practiced Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
EDGE Analysis
The roughly hour-long session included a variety of passes, including up to 50 yards in the air and numerous 25-yarders while rolling out to the left and right. GM John Lynch noted that Garoppolo is "doing a really job (of) building his stamina in his throwing program that was prescribed all along and working out really strongly and aggressively." After undergoing surgery on March 8 to address a torn capsule in his right throwing shoulder, Garoppolo reported to training camp last Tuesday and promptly passed a physical. At the same time, coach Kyle Shanahan announced the 49ers were moving on from Garoppolo to 2021 first-round pick Trey Lance under center, making the veteran QB available via trade.

Garoppolo passed his physical Tuesday, which means he has recovered from his shoulder injury, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
EDGE Analysis
Garoppolo is healthy again after undergoing shoulder surgery March 8. The quarterback passing his physical should allow the 49ers to ramp up trade talks involving Garoppolo, but San Francisco has already made it clear that the veteran signal caller isn't part of the team's future, as the 49ers plan to build around 2021 first-round pick Trey Lance under center.

Coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with Garoppolo (shoulder) on Tuesday and confirmed afterward that the 49ers have moved on to Trey Lance as their quarterback, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
EDGE Analysis
Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that Shanahan doesn't plan on Garoppolo practicing with the team this summer while the 49ers figure out details of a trade or release. Candidates for the 30-year-old's services include the Texans and Seahawks.

Coach Kyle Shanahan told Tim Kawakami on The TK Show on Monday that he expects Garoppolo (shoulder) to report to training camp Tuesday, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
EDGE Analysis
The entire 49ers roster is required to report to camp Tuesday, and Garoppolo will be among his current teammates, likely just for the typical physical and nothing else. Shanahan has made the transition from Garoppolo to second-year pro Trey Lance under center this offseason, which was helped by the fact Garoppolo spent most of it in recovery mode from March surgery to address his right throwing shoulder. Garoppolo resumed throwing in early July, and there's hope he'll receive medical clearance by mid-August. His representatives have been given permission to seek a trade, and per Matt Barrows of The Athletic interested teams include the Browns, Seahawks and Texans.

The 49ers have given Garoppolo's agents permission to seek a trade now that the veteran quarterback has been cleared to start practicing, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
EDGE Analysis
Garoppolo may need more time to build up his arm strength after offseason surgery on his right shoulder, but he's at least been deemed healthy enough to practice. With the 49ers ready to turn to Trey Lance under center, a trade makes the most sense for all parties, though Garoppolo's considerable salary is another complicating factor on top of the shoulder surgery. Matt Barrows of The Athletic recently mentioned Seattle, Cleveland and Houston as possible destinations for the 30-year-old quarterback.

The expectation is that Garoppolo (shoulder) will be cleared to practice by mid-August, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
Perhaps more important than being cleared to return to practice, Garoppolo would also be expected to pass a physical, which would result in an opportunity for a trade market. It has been previously reported by Matt Barrows of The Athletic that the Browns, Seahawks and Texans remain candidates who may look into acquiring the 30-year-old quarterback. If the 49ers are unable to find a deal they like, it will be interesting to see how they handle the starting situation between the veteran and last year's first-round pick, Trey Lance.

Garoppolo, who is on the mend from the shoulder surgery that he underwent in March, has reportedly resumed throwing, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
EDGE Analysis
While the fact that he's throwing again is a step in the right direction for Garoppolo as training camp approaches, it's unclear if he'll be able to fully practice by the end of the month. As the 30-year-old progresses in his recovery from surgery, look for the focus to soon shift on where he'll be playing in 2022. Though Garoppolo is still on the 49ers roster, he remains a candidate to be traded, with Trey Lance seemingly poised to handle starting duties this coming season. Per Barrows, the Browns, Seahawks and Texans are among the teams that could look into acquiring Garoppolo.

Garoppolo (shoulder) is expected to resume throwing in the coming weeks, Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
The 49ers have maintained the veteran quarterback is still on pace to participate in training camp after undergoing offseason shoulder surgery in early March, but Garoppolo has yet to participate in any offseason OTAs as he continues to rehab from the injury. Second-year quarterback Trey Lance has taken all the starting reps in Garoppolo's absence and figures to be the frontrunner for the starting job, especially if the 30-year-old continues to miss time.

The 49ers have excused Garoppolo (shoulder) from this week's mandatory minicamp, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
EDGE Analysis
San Francisco's three-day mandatory minicamp will take place beginning Tuesday, but Garoppolo will be able to stay away from the team without incurring fines. The 30-year-old quarterback is recovering from right shoulder surgery and expected to resume throwing this month, but his rehab will continue away from the 49ers' facilities. By all accounts, 2021 first-round pick Trey Lance is primed for a chance at the starting role this season, and coach Kyle Shanahan said back in May that he expects Garoppolo to be traded this offseason.

Garoppolo (shoulder) wasn't spotted during the 49ers' OTA on Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
EDGE Analysis
Garoppolo continues to rehab his shoulder after offseason surgery, so it isn't surprising to see him absent from OTAs. The quarterback has been adamant that he'll be ready for training camp, but health is only one of his concerns this offseason, as the 49ers appear ready to give 2021 first-round pick Trey Lance a chance at earning the starting gig. Head coach Kyle Shanahan also still expects Garoppolo to be traded this offseason, per Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee.
