That’s the word from 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, who said today that there is no possibility that Mullens could start if Garoppolo is healthy.
“That scenario does not exist,” Shanahan said. “When Jimmy’s healthy, he’ll be playing.”
Garoppolo wasn’t healthy today, as he missed practice with the ankle injury that kept him out of Sunday’s game. It’s unclear at the moment whether Garoppolo or Mullens will start on Sunday night against the Eagles. But it is clear that if Garoppolo gets cleared to return from his ankle injury, it’s his job.
