Jimmy Garoppolo throws INT in second pass back from injury

Broncos training camp Live updates from first joint practice with 49ers

Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders (10) of the Denver Broncos runs the ball for a gain during the first quarter of the game on Monday, Aug. 19 at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.

Garoppolo completed only one of his six passing attempts for no yards and an interception -- for a quarterback passer rating of 0.0.

Mullens, 24, and Beathard, 25, are competing to back up starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo, who made his first appearance on the gridiron on Monday night's matchup with the Denver Broncos in preseason since tearing his ACL in Week 3 of the 2018 season.

Truth be told, this might be a more ideal world than we thought, as the 49ers are using this time to get numerous players off of their respective injury lists.

Garoppolo didn't perform well, but there's more to his outing than just the numbers. But it is what it is.

A person familiar with the situation says Denver Broncos rookie quarterback Drew Lock will miss the rest of the preseason with a sprained right thumb.

Per NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco, Shanahan said, "I believe in both of those guys".

"It felt good to be back on the football field making plays and exciting the crowd", Sanders said.

"It's something I haven't done in a year obviously", Garoppolo told reporters after the game.

Acquired by the 49ers from the New England Patriots in 2017, San Francisco bet the farm on Garoppolo with a five-year contract worth $137 million.
