Excused from mandatory minicamp

The 49ers have excused Garoppolo (shoulder) from this week's mandatory minicamp, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.

San Francisco's three-day mandatory minicamp will take place beginning Tuesday, but Garoppolo will be able to stay away from the team without incurring fines. The 30-year-old quarterback is recovering from right shoulder surgery and expected to resume throwing this month, but his rehab will continue away from the 49ers' facilities. By all accounts, 2021 first-round pick Trey Lance is primed for a chance at the starting role this season, and coach Kyle Shanahan said back in May that he expects Garoppolo to be traded this offseason.
