49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) not expected to be ready for Week 16

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (ankle) was designated to return from injured reserve but is not expected to be active for Week 16's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

What It Means:

Garoppolo is healthy enough to return to practice, but Kyle Shanahan doesn't expect him to be ready to serve as C.J. Beathard's backup in Week 16. It's possible that Garoppolo could return for Week 17's game against the Seattle Seahawks, but Shanahan has previously expressed doubt over him playing at all for the rest of the season. San Francisco reportedly plans to sign a quarterback off another team's practice squad to serve as their emergency option against the Cardinals.

Beathard's Week 16 projection includes 119.5 passing yards, 0.7 touchdowns, 0.5 interceptions, and 7.2 FanDuel points.
