Jimmy Garoppolo didn’t start the second half for the 49ers. Instead it was rookie Trey Lance in at quarterback. San Francisco announced Garoppolo was ‘questionable’ to return with a calf injury.

There was immediate speculation that Lance might’ve started the half because of the way Garoppolo finished the first half (4-11 for 33 yards in the second quarter). However, it appears it’s an injury for the oft-injured signal caller.

This is precisely why the 49ers wanted to upgrade their backup quarterback spot. What’ll be interesting to see is how this affects the team’s long-term plans. It looked like they were content starting Garoppolo all year, but if Lance plays well, it might be hard to bench him.
