Jimmy G will start in Week 5; Deebo listed as questionable originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
There is now clarity regarding quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. He was not listed on the 49ers' injury report on Friday, and will start against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium after missing the past 2 ½ games with a high right ankle sprain.
After not practicing the previous two weeks, Garoppolo took part in limited work on Wednesday and Thursday. He was a full-go at practice on Friday.
C.J. Beathard will be the No. 2 quarterback over Nick Mullens, Shanahan said.
Wide receiver Deebo Samuel missed his second consecutive day of practice Friday with an “illness.”
Although Samuel’s absence has nothing to do with the novel coronavirus – or he would have been placed on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list – there still is some uncertainty about the status of the 49ers’ top receiver.

The 49ers plan to place defensive end Ziggy Ansah (torn biceps) and defensive back K'Waun Williams on injured reserve on Saturday. Ansah is out for the season, while Williams is expected back in about a month from a knee sprain.
