Nick Mullens gets first reps of first Week 10 practice

We are getting a little closer to some kind of announcement.

The San Francisco 49ers have not made an official announcement, but early evidence suggests Nick Mullens will be the starting quarterback this coming Monday against the New York Giants. The team returned to practice on Tuesday for the first time since Mullens’ debut on Thursday Night Football, and he got the first reps of practice, according to the 49ers beat writers.

Ian Rapoport and Jay Glazer both reported over the weekend that Mullens was expected to be the starter this week, but Kyle Shanahan said on Friday he was waiting until after the team’s four-day break before making any decision. One has to imagine Shanahan has had some kind of conversation with his two quarterbacks.

The 49ers will have locker room availability following practice, and it will be interesting to see if anybody spills the beans about the starting QB. Kyle Shanahan’s next press conference is likely going to be Thursday. The 49ers don’t have media availability on Wednesday, and then move into the normal three-day practice period Thursday through Saturday.
