49ers Garoppolo update: How he looks in exhibition debut

DENVER — Jimmy Garoppolo reappeared in a 49ers uniform Monday night, set to play for the first time since his left knee’s catastrophic injury 330 days earlier in Kansas City.

Garoppolo has made postive strides throughout his comeback and no ill effects from Oct. 3 surgery to replace his anterior cruciate ligament. General manager John Lynch recently described Garoppolo’s rehabilitation as “flawless,” and the next step for the franchise quarterback was getting into an exhibition to knock off rust and iron out wrinkles in the offense.

After not playing in the exhibition-opening win over the Dallas Cowboys, Garoppolo was to start against the host Broncos, who intercepted him just once during last week’s joint practices.
