SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — For the San Francisco 49ers, the path is simple: Win the final two games and they get back to the playoffs for the second time in five seasons under coach Kyle Shanahan.

Jimmy Garoppolo injured his right thumb in San Francisco's loss at Tennessee last week and his status for the 49ers' game this week is in doubt.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Elijah Mitchell has been one of the NFL's biggest surprises this season.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — The play so far this season from the San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks has been mostly what was expected.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Rookie Trey Lance's first career start for the San Francisco 49ers featured a bad interception, a couple of promising moments and a knee injury that could sideline him for a week or two.
