Jimmy Garoppolo’s future is in limbo, and it’s a pretty sad scene.

Earlier this week, the 49ers made it clear that Trey Lance was their QB of the future, and they were trying to trade Garoppolo before the start of the season. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan also implied that Jimmy could come and go as he pleases at the practice facility while the team tries to find another team to take him.

The 49ers aren’t simply keeping quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in bubble wrap by not letting him practice. They basically have excommunicated him from the rest of the team, without cutting him.

Coach Kyle Shanahan addressed Garoppolo’s day-to-day status with reporters on Wednesday. “We’re saying, go ahead you don’t have to be here,” Shanahan said. “Anything he wants to be at he can. I think Jimmy, like I said yesterday, Jimmy, [G.M.] John [Lynch], and I talked for a while. We understand every part of this situation and I think both sides know each side is doing as good as we can.”

“Anything he wants to be at he can. I think Jimmy, like I said yesterday, Jimmy, [G.M.] John [Lynch], and I talked for a while. We understand every part of this situation and I think both sides know each side is doing as good as we can.”

During Niners practice on Saturday, Jimmy G was seen on the field training by himself.

As for what’s next for Jimmy, it appears that the Giants are interested in his services.
