Jimmy Garoppolo Finishes With 0.0 QB Rating In Return From Knee Injury

Unfortunately, Garoppolo's preseason debut didn't go so well, as the 49ers starter finished the game with one of the most freakish lines I've ever seen: 1-of-6 for zero yards, with one interception and a 0.0 passer rating.

DENVER | Broncos receiver Emmanuel Sanders had a better return to action than 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in San Francisco's 24-15 preseason win at Denver on Monday night.

"Obviously [I'm] a little frustrated", Garoppolo said.

Sanders caught a 5-yard pass from Flacco on the Broncos' first offensive play and added a 19-yard run on a reverse in his first game since tearing his left Achilles tendon in practice last December. But it is what it is. He looked tentative in the preseason game against the Broncos, and was just slow in his decision making - clearly not trusting his reads. His third pass was tipped and cornerback De'Vante Bausby broke up his fourth attempt.

Interceptions were somewhat of a concern for Garoppolo in the eight games he started for the team after being acquired from the New England Patriots during the 2017 season. "It's something I haven't done in a year obviously, so got to knock the rust off and everything and thankfully we have a short week this week so we can bounce back quickly but it's the first step of getting back into it".

Garoppolo will likely get a pass after his performance Monday night, but he needs to show some improvement when the 49ers face Kansas City on Saturday.
