Jimmy Garappolo is back for Sunday Night Football’s primetime showdown against the Colts.
The veteran quarterback returned to 49ers practice this week after sustaining a calf injury in Week 4. Rookie Trey Lance took over in the 17-10 loss to the Cardinals but sprained his knee. that prevented him from starting in the Week 7 matchup.
Before leaving the field in the 49ers’ 28-21 loss to the Seahawks, Garoppolo added 925 passing yards with five touchdowns. He used the bye week after Lance started to effectively prepare for the start against the Colts.

Carson Wentz will look to extend the Colts’ winning streak on the road. While he has 1,545 passing yards with nine touchdowns and one interception, Wentz will depend on the running game against the league’s top-ranked defense. Running back Jonathan Taylor has a chance to continue his hot streak after adding 145 yards and two touchdowns against the Texans.
The forecast for Sunday’s primetime showdown may have an effect on both teams’ passing. According to the National Metereological Service, the confrontation will take place in difficult conditions. Although the area is under a wind advisory until 8:00 pm Pacific time, showers with possible thunderstorms are expected throughout the night. Depending on the severity of the wind, both quarterbacks may have a difficult time reaching their goals.
