According to @NFLTotalAccess, San Francisco 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo will have surgery in the next week to repair a torn capsule in his throwing shoulder, sources say.

“He won’t throw for 16 weeks, but should be ready for the season if all goes well. But what about a trade,” NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport wrote on Twitter.

According to the 49ers’ medical team, the torn capsule in Garoppolo’s throwing shoulder occurred in the wild card game against the Dallas Cowboys two months ago.  

Rapoport reported that the rehab will take approximately four months. Being out for those 16 weeks means that Jimmy G will be missing OTAs and minicamp. But by late June, it is believed he will be ready to play.

His absence is not a big problem for the Niners, since they drafted quarterback Trey Lance last year. He is expected to fill in for Garoppolo, while Jimmy G is expected be traded this offseason.

Garoppolo has been playing for the 49ers for five seasons, but he has said that they will part ways before the start of next season. Despite his injury, he is reportedly looking at the trade market and is still a candidate for other teams to consider.

While the surgery may not affect Garoppolo’s availability for the next season, it may impact his trade value somewhat. Calling him injury-prone is not very far off, as he already missed 25 regular season games in the past four seasons due to injuries.
