Garoppolo needed surgery in the spring, in the best case, he can build up to the training camp – Out with a lace!


Jimmy Garoppolo is not at the Raiders’ training, because as it turned out, he had to have surgery on his foot back in March, and they do not yet know when he will be able to start training, writes Vic Tafur. According to head coach Josh McDaniels, he may not be available until training camp.

There was a bit of a stir in March when the Raiders postponed Garoppolo’s introductory press conference a day later than planned, and now it turns out that it was necessary because of his injury. In the end, it was decided that they would also sign the controller. Jimmy G suffered an injury while playing for the 49ers back in December, then the team doctors argued against surgery, and the QB also tried to return to the Super Bowl if the team had made it that far, as the doctors predicted a two-month recovery time. However, even by March, Garoppolo’s foot was not healed, so he finally needed surgery, which was performed after signing for the Raiders.

Garoppolo has a long medical history, as since joining the 49ers in 2017, he missed 31 regular season games and had to miss the end of the season in three cases. The Raiders, however, and aware of his latest injury, gave him a three-year, $72.75 million contract. If he’s fully recovered by training camp, there’s no big deal, but if he drags out even more, it’ll be hard for him to get used to his new catchers and learn the system.

Garoppolo is currently backed by Brian Hoyer, Chase Garbers and fourth-round pick Aidan O’Connell.
