Schefter: San Francisco's Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) reportedly does not need surgery, could return in 7-8 weeks

According to Adam Schefter, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo reportedly could return in seven-to-eight weeks.

What It Means:

Despite earlier reports stating Garoppolo's foot injury was season-ending, doctors determined San Francisco's quarterback would not need surgery while a return could occur if rehab goes well. Expect Brock Purdy to start under center while Garoppolo is sidelined.

Purdy's projection for Week 14's matchup versus a Tampa Bay Buccaneers' defense ranked 11th (15.9) in FanDuel points allowed per game to quarterbacks includes 19.3 completions for 0.9 touchdowns and 197.5 yards and 3.1 rushing attempts for 13.8 yards.
