When is Jimmy Garoppolo ever going to be healthy?
Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo will not be joining his team for its offseason training activities.
According to Las Vegas coach Josh McDaniels, the franchise is being cautious with Garoppolo’s recovery process. He did not reveal any specific timeline for his return due following left foot surgery. It was reported that Garoppolo had surgery soon after he signed his three-year deal worth $67.5 million in March. McDaniels, however, assured reporters that there is no concern about Garoppolo’s availability for the start of the next season.
“We don’t play a game for 100 days,” McDaniels said, per The Athletic. “Everything that’s happened since we signed Jimmy [Garoppolo], we knew ahead of time. … Certainly had an awareness of all of it. Our preference is not to push it and rush anybody back at this point in time.”
Despite missing 31 regular season games since he was traded from the Patriots in ’17, Jimmy Garoppolo has completed 67.4% of his passes, throwing for 2,381 yards, 16 touchdowns, and four interceptions before his injury last season.
