49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo might get first start against Bears

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo might get first start against Bears

The team announced Tuesday that the recently acquired quarterback will start Sunday on the road against the Chicago Bears.

Garoppolo was expected to take over the starting job for the 49ers after the franchise traded for him four weeks ago.

Rookie C.J. Beathard hurt his hip and knee and was forced out of Sunday's loss to Seattle in the fourth quarter. He replaced Beathard for the final 1:07, ran for a 4-yard scramble on his first snap, converted a fourth-down pass to Aldrick Robinson (8 yards) before rolling left for a 10-yard touchdown strike to Louis Murphy.

"He's gotten better", Shanahan said. Garoppolo would have likely commanded top dollar on the open market after impressing during his brief playing time in Brady's stead. However, Beathard kept the job until now for the 1-10 49ers. In two starts with the Patriots, he threw four touchdowns, zero interceptions, and had a rating of 120.8. Hoyer was released when the Garoppolo trade became official and wound up switching spots, going to New England to serve as Brady's backup.




Beathard was 22 of 38 for 201 yards and no touchdowns against the Seahawks.

Both Kyle Shanahan and Garoppolo will speak to the media on Wednesday. The injury to Beathard makes Shanahan's decision somewhat easier.

"When you're making a long-term decision on someone for your organization, for you to pay him the amount of money that you do for quarterbacks, that's a big deal", Shanahan said.

If he does want to become a franchise quarterback, Garoppolo will have to prove his worth in the final five games of the 49ers season.
