49ers S Adrian Colbert underwent thumb surgery Tuesday morning.

Colbert suffered the injury Week 10 against the Giants. With Jaquiski Tartt and Jimmie Ward both out for the season, Colbert got the start against the Giants. The 49ers' bye week will give him extra time to recover, but he is questionable for Week 12.

49ers seventh-round S Adrian Colbert suffered a broken thumb in the Week 10 win over the Giants.

Since both starting safeties Jaquiski Tartt and Jimmie Ward went down with broken forearms, Colbert has been playing heavy snaps the past three weeks. He made his first start on Sunday and played all 66 snaps despite the injury in the first quarter. Word is Colbert could "be out a little while."

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said he has not decided who will start at quarterback following the bye week.

Outside observers have presumed Jimmy Garoppolo would get the nod following the bye week, but Shanahan says he has yet to make a plan. "I’m going to continue to work with Jimmy over the bye week, here and there," Shanahan said. "Then we’ll start the evaluation Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. But it’s not just about C.J [Beathard]. It’s not just about Jimmy. There’s a lot of things that go into it." Beathard did lead the 49ers to their first win of the season on Sunday, but the team did not trade for Garoppolo at the deadline just to watch him ride the bench the rest of the season. It would be surprising if Garoppolo is not under center Week 12 against the Seahawks.

Matt Breida rushed nine times for 55 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 10 win over the Giants, adding a three-yard reception.

The majority of Breida's yardage came on his 33-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, a winding affair where the G-Men didn't seem much interested in tackling. The touchdown was his first on the ground, while the carries were his second most of the season. Although coach Kyle Shanahan likes to mix Breida in, he's still miles behind starter Carlos Hyde. He won't be on the FLEX radar when the 49ers come off their bye against the Seahawks in Week 12.

49ers WR Louis Murphy started the team's Week 10 win over the Giants, catching 2-of-2 passes for 48 yards.

Murphy was inserted into the starting lineup six days after being signed off the street. The catches were his first since 2015. It's possible he'll no longer be off the roster when the 49ers come off bye in Week 12 against the Seahawks.
Nov 12 - 7:52 PM

Aldrick Robinson caught a 12-yard pass in the 49ers' Week 10 win over the Giants.

Robinson's second quarter reception was his lone target. He has three grabs for 30 yards in two games since Pierre Garcon's injury. There won't be fantasy value here down the stretch.
Nov 12 - 7:51 PM

Garrett Celek caught 4-of-6 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 10 win over the Giants.

Facing the league's worst tight end defense, Celek posted the third most yards of his career. The touchdown was just his eighth in 65 games. Celek caught a seed from C.J. Beathard in traffic, found the sideline, and eased by a business-decisioning Janoris Jenkins. It's possible George Kittle returns after the 49ers' Week 11 bye, which would kill Celek's streamer appeal.
Nov 12 - 7:48 PM

Marquise Goodwin scored an 83-yard touchdown in the 49ers' Week 10 win over the Giants.

Goodwin drew only one other target. He simply ran right by Janoris Jenkins on his second quarter score. Goodwin was overcome with emotion when he reached the end zone. The 49ers' de facto No. 1 receiver, Goodwin has three catches for 151 yards and a touchdown in two games since Pierre Garcon went down. Even without Richard Sherman, the Seahawks will be a tough Week 12 matchup when the 49ers come off bye.
Nov 12 - 7:37 PM

Carlos Hyde rushed 17 times for 98 yards in the 49ers' Week 10 win over the Giants, adding two receptions for six additional yards.

The 98 yards rushing were Hyde's second most of the season, though the two receptions were also his fewest in five games, and second fewest of the year. With the 49ers controlling the game, Matt Breida was worked in liberally, touching the ball 10 times and scoring a 33-yard touchdown. Although matchups haven't mattered much for Hyde because of how often he's catching the ball, the Seahawks will be a daunting Week 12 opponent when the 49ers come off bye.
Nov 12 - 7:29 PM

C.J. Beathard completed 19-of-25 passes for 288 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the 49ers' 31-21, Week 10 win over the Giants, adding two rushes for 18 yards and an additional score.

Beathard poured it on the most pathetic team in the league as the 49ers finally notched their first victory of 2017. Beathard was routinely throwing to players left completely wide open, including on his 83-yard touchdown to Marquise Goodwin. Goodwin simply ran right by Janoris Jenkins in Jenkins' first week back from suspension. Score No. 2 was a 47-yarder to Garrett Celek. Beathard delivered a seed to Celek in traffic, who found the edge and then evaded an embarrassing "tackle attempt" from, you guessed it, Jenkins. Beathard's pick, humorously, came on a screen, though it was more of a good play by Oliver Vernon than bad play by Beathard. The rookie quarterback now has rushing touchdowns in three of his past four games. With the 49ers heading on bye for Week 11, it's possible they return with Jimmy Garoppolo as their starting QB.
Nov 12 - 7:22 PM

49ers declared DL Solomon Thomas, DE Aaron Lynch, WR Trent Taylor, LB Elijah Lee, TE George Kittle, LB Pita Taumoepenu and OL Darrell Williams Jr. inactive for Week 10 against the Giants.

First-rounder Thomas remains week to week.
Nov 12 - 3:00 PM

49ers LT Joe Staley (eye) wasn't listed on the team's final injury report for Week 10 against the Giants.

He'll be back to protect C.J. Beathard's blind side following a one-week absence. His return pushes Trent Brown back to right tackle with Eric Magnuson heading to the bench.
Nov 10 - 4:49 PM

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed C.J. Beathard will start Week 10 against the Giants.

The 49ers didn't rule out a move to Jimmy Garoppolo this week, but will stay with Beathard for at least one more game. Beathard hasn't shown much over his last four appearances, averaging just 236 yards with a 2:4 TD/INT ratio. Garoppolo is likely to take over for Beathard after San Francisco's Week 11 bye.

49ers LT Joe Staley (eye) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.

Staley is back practicing after missing last week's game with a fractured orbital bone. He was seen wearing a tinted visor at Wednesday's session. Trent Brown spelled Staley at left tackle in Sunday's loss to Arizona.
Nov 8 - 6:41 PM

Coach Kyle Shanahan left open the possibility for Jimmy Garoppolo to start Week 10 against the Giants.

Shanahan said he is currently committed to C.J. Beathard under center, but he reserves the right to change his mind after seeing how the two quarterbacks practice this week. Shanahan is 0-9 and still looking for his first win as a coach. Week 10 presents a chance with the hapless Giants coming to town. If Garoppolo knows the offense better and can be competent, he could get the nod. Unfortunately, he wouldn't be a fantasy play in this offense devoid of skill.
