worst half in his NFL career. They watched film and talked as usual, knowing there needs to be marked improvement going forward.” data-reactid=”26″ type=”text”>Shanahan said he didn’t need to have any special conversations with Garoppolo after the 28-year-old played the worst half in his NFL career. They watched film and talked as usual, knowing there needs to be marked improvement going forward.

The head coach understands a high ankle sprain takes a long time to heal, with its effects potentially lasting for an entire season. Improvements could be incremental, but Shanahan does expect Garoppolo to steadily progress.

Garoppolo had a good enough week of practice to start in Week 5, but he then seemed more affected by his ankle during the game. Shanahan said the 49ers did what they could to prepare Garoppolo for live reps, but there’s only so much they can do in practice.

“There’s not more that we can do except tackle because we go full speed Wednesday and Thursday, a couple of periods on Friday,” Shanahan said. “We don’t hold back. We do bootlegs, we do play action, we scramble, we sit in the pocket. So, we already do everything you can except tackle.”

“It makes it hard for you to play at your best, but by no means does that mean that you can’t play.” Shanahan said. “Lots of guys go out there and they have things that prohibit them from being their best, but if you can play, you still have to go out there and perform, and I’ll be the judge of that watching him throughout the week.”

Nothing gets easier for Garoppolo and his offense, who have their biggest task yet in facing All-Pro defensive tackle Aaron Donald on Sunday.

Garoppolo definitely will need the use of both of his ankles to avoid ending up on the Levi’s Stadium turf.
