49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo practices for second consecutive day

“I’m trying to get it back to my old motion where it’s fluid and everything like that, but it will just take some time,” Garoppolo said on Wednesday. “It’s a process, but we’re working in the right direction.””

49ers Notebook: Trey Lance’s impressive feat; Shanahan on QB practice reps, and why he ignores ‘The Chart’; Bosa predicts eventual DeMeco Ryans departure

Shanahan: “I always compare to blackjack. If I’m playing blackjack, I will always double down on eleven, but it’s because I’m going to play for an hour and eventually the odds will come out that way, supposedly. If you go for it every time on 4th-and-1, eventually you should get it more than you have. But I don’t look at it that way. Who’s the three-technique? Who’s blocking him? What’s the weather? Who’s the quarterback on the other side? Can we kick a field goal? All that type of stuff. Do I feel the momentum? Whatever my gut is. There’s so many things that go into it.”

Deebo isn’t looking to squash beef with Rams star Donald

“I don’t know the guy,” Samuel said. “Obviously, he don’t know who I am, which he should. I don’t know, I just don’t walk up to people and be like, ‘Hey, how you doing? I’m Deebo.’ I’m not that type of guy or whatever.”

49ers practice report: Trent Williams remains out with Rams looming

“Perhaps the veteran is getting a couple days off to ensure his readiness for Sunday. Williams doesn’t necessarily need the days of practice to be effective on the field. However, his two consecutive absences aren’t encouraging and Friday should give more insight into his availability in the biggest game of the year.”

Lombardi: Trey Lance? Jimmy Garoppolo? Both? The 49ers have been building QB option power — now they’re using it (paywall)

“The subtext is obvious. The 49ers actively want the Rams to at least thinkthat Garoppolo is capable of playing in Sunday’s pivotal showdown at SoFi Stadium. That way, the Rams will at least be compelled to prepare for both Garoppolo and rookie quarterback Trey Lance, who started the 49ers’ most recent win over Houston.”
