General manager John Lynch told SiriusXM NFL Radio on Tuesday that Garoppolo is at the 49ers’ facility throwing again just a few months after his surgery.

The GM of the #49ers, @JohnLynch49ers updated us on the health and recovery of Jimmy Garoppolo and Jerick McKinnon…

It doesn’t sound like Garoppolo was dropping back or moving around a ton, but the fact he’s back on the field participating in any football activities is a positive sign. He was off crutches before the end of the season, and back on the sideline for the final few weeks of the season. That indicates doctors felt he had enough range of motion to get out of the way if a play came near him on the sideline. He was also spotted on a side field doing workouts during practice late in the year]]> 5416704 Tue, 22 Jan 2019 15:54:01 EDT Niners Wire
<![CDATA[Jimmy Garoppolo throwing to Jerick McKinnon as both rehab ACL tears]]> Jerick McKinnon and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, so they found themselves in dire straits when both players were lost for the season before September was over. McKinnon tore his ACL a little more than a week ahead of the team’s first regular season game [more]]]> 5416627 Tue, 22 Jan 2019 13:45:01 EDT <![CDATA[Catching passes from Jimmy G]]> McKinnon (knee) caught passes from Jimmy Garoppolo (knee) recently, SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

Both players are working back from ACL tears, with McKinnon suffering his injury Sept. 1 and Garoppolo suffering his Sept. 23. The 26-year-old running back seems to be on schedule in his recovery, but he still figures to be absent or limited throughout the offseason program and into OTAs/minicamp. Once he returns to full participation in practice, McKinnnon will face stiff competition for playing time from Matt Breida, who averaged 5.3 yards on 153 carries despite battling through an ankle injury for most of the 2018 campaign. For what it's worth, there hasn't been any report of Breida requiring offseason surgery.

But McKinnon sustained a torn ACL a week before the opener, and Garoppolo was lost for the season in Week 3 with an ACL tear of his own.]]> 5409223 Fri, 11 Jan 2019 10:00:02 EDT CSN Bay Area <![CDATA[49ers roster review: Running back depth shines]]> Jerick McKinnon, the team’s highest-priority offseason target, tore his ACL days before the start of the season. San Francisco’s running game stayed afloat though thanks to some tremendous work by the players on the back end of the depth chart.

A banged up group of 49ers running backs still churned out the 13th-most yards in the league, and averaged 4.5 yards-per-carry – tied for the 12th-best mark.

Let’s review the performance of what emerged as one of the strongest parts of the 49ers’ depth chart]]> 5408970 Thu, 10 Jan 2019 21:48:01 EDT Niners Wire
