The San Francisco 49ers will face the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round of the 2022 NFL season playoffs and if they advance they could have a special reinforcement.

Kyle Shanahan, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, stated during Friday’s press conference that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has a slight chance to return for the NFC Championship Game. The ex-Patriot could be in squad this week heading into the 49ers clash with Dallas.

“I would be surprised, but it depends on the result this week. I think he has some chances,” Shanahan said when asked about Garoppolo’s availability. “There would be a better chance (of Garoppolo playing in the Super Bowl).”

Jimmy G hasn't played since Week 13 when he suffered a broken foot against the Miami Dolphins. Before the injury, the 31-year-old QB had 2,437 yards with 16 touchdowns, four interceptions and led the team to a 7-3 record.

Hard decision

Choosing between Brock Purdy and Jimmy Garoppolo will be a difficult decision. Last year’s Mr. Irrelevant in the NFL draft became the first rookie to score four touchdowns in a postseason game.

Additionally, Purdy had the third-best first-time playoff performance among rookies with 322 passing yards. Only Russell Wilson, in 2013, with 375, and Sammy Baugh, in 1937, with 335 had more than the Iowa State alumni.
