San Francisco 49ers name Jimmy Garoppolo starting QB

Jimmy Garoppolo

Beathard, the rookie out of Iowa, has had the job for five games, but the 49ers announced Wednesday that Jimmy Garoppolo would start in the team's upcoming game against the Bears.

Tuesday's news came down via the 49ers' Twitter account: "49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan met with the team's quarterbacks today and informed them that Jimmy Garoppolo will start this Sunday in Chicago". In his three snaps, Garoppolo scrambled for four yards, completed an 8-yard pass to Aldrick Robinson to convert a fourth down and threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Louis Murphy on the final play of the game.

"I think we brought him here because we want him to being the quarterback of the future", Shanahan said when Garoppolo was introduced. Garoppolo would have likely commanded top dollar on the open market after impressing during his brief playing time in Brady's stead.

"He's gotten better", Shanahan said. He most notably threw 42-for-59 (71.2 percent) for 496 yards, four touchdowns, and no interceptions in two starts during the 2016 season, posting a 119 passer rating.

Time Inc announced in June past year that it would slim down its cycling portfolio to focus on the flagship title Cycling Weekly . Meredith, whose magazines include Better Homes and Gardens , Shape and Family Circle , acquired the company for $18.50 per share.

Beathard started the past five games after replacing Brian Hoyer, who began the season as San Francisco's starting quarterback.

The one-win San Francisco 49ers will be changing things up to try and get another "W" against the Chicago Bears.

Beathard was 22 of 38 for 201 yards and no touchdowns against the Seahawks. Garoppolo, 26, is in his fourth National Football League season.

Shanahan said Beathard has a knee contusion and a hip strain from a low hit by defensive end Michael Bennett during an incomplete pass on the final drive.
