49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo said Tuesday during Men’s Wearhouse’s annual Suit Drive that his rehab from an ACL tear has gone “really well” and he’s hoping to be a “full go” for training camp.
“I really do,” Garoppolo said, via Pro Football Talk. “The rehab process has gone really well. Knock on wood. We haven’t had any setbacks. OTAs went about as well as I could have hoped for and now for training camp hopefully we’ll be full go with team drills and all that stuff. We’re moving in the right direction. We’ve just got to keep going day by day and keep stacking them together. It’s a long process, but we’ve come this far, so why stop now, right?”
Garoppolo added that he’s hoping to avoid being placed on the physically unable to perform list.
“I’m sure hoping so,” Garoppolo said. “The training staff, the coaches, we’ve kind of put together a plan and everything like that. We’ll kind of assess the situation as we get closer to it.”
According to Garoppolo, he currently has no restrictions and is cleared for all drills.
“I’m good to go. Finally,” he said.
Garoppolo, 27, is a former second-round pick of the Patriots back in 2014. The Patriots traded him to the 49ers in 2017 at the trade deadline in return for a 2018 second-round pick.
Garoppolo was in line to be an unrestricted free agent when the 49ers signed him to a five-year, $137.5 million contract during the 2018 offseason.
In 2018, Garoppolo appeared in three games for the 49ers and completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 718 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions. He also rushed for 33 yards.
