What the Team Had to Say
49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan Gives Injury Updates
"(For) Jimmy Garoppolo, a high ankle sprain is what we have now. Nick Bosa is most likely an ACL. We have to confirm that tomorrow, but most likely. Solomon Thomas, from what I'm told, is a little bit in the same boat as Bosa, but he has a better chance of it not being that from what I'm told, but we'll wait to see. Raheem Mostert, I don't think it was that. He has some knee issues from the game on that turf."
49ers Quarterback Nick Mullens on How He Felt He Performed in Place of Jimmy Garoppolo
"I thought I did a decent job of operating the game. You come in with a what, three-possession lead? So, your job is just to manage the game, move the chains and create a rhythm. Obviously, we got into some second-and-long, third-and-long situations. Great run by Jerick McKinnon to save that drive. But overall, just lead the offense and stay on schedule, move the chains and preserve the victory."
"I just saw a red blur go down the right side. Once Raheem gets into the open field it's pretty much curtains. He's the closest thing in the NFL to seeing Chris Johnson, since Chris Johnson. We know as an O-line that all we have to do is get him to the second level and he'll take care of the rest. He's a heck of a player. Glad to have him on the team. I think he does a lot for us."
