Jimmy Garoppolo (thumb, shoulder) does not have an injury designation for Saturday's Divisional Round game against the Packers. "Threw the ball great," coach Kyle Shanahan said of Garoppolo's practice week. "He looked as good as he did the week before." Shanny said Garoppolo's thumb remains a bigger issue than his shoulder. Garoppolo's thumb has not been as big of an issue since he started taking pain-killing injections, though his typically shaky accuracy has not exactly gotten better. Shanahan's primary objective for his quarterback on Saturday will be ensuring he does not give the game away with bad turnovers.

Aaron Rodgers was named a first-team All-Pro for the 2021 season. Rodgers received 34-of-50 votes at quarterback with Tom Brady earning the second-team spot with 16 votes. Given the same 50 voters will decide the MVP for the 2021 season, Rodgers has a good shot to earn his fourth MVP to go along with this fourth All-Pro selection.
