49ers’ Jimmy Garoppolo says Brandon Aiyuk will be ready when his number is called


When the San Francisco 49ers beat the Detroit Lions last Sunday, there were a few surprises, including wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk only playing 25 snaps in the game, having no passes come his way.

“You know, it’s one of those things that, our offense, you see it every season; it’s a week-by-week offense,” Garoppolo said Tuesday morning on KNBR’s Murph & Mac show. “One guy, this week is his number. Next week, it’s the other guy. It’s just one of those things that you can’t get too caught up in it. We’re only one week into this thing, and [Aiyuk], he had a hell of a training camp too. It didn’t go unnoticed from the quarterbacking, that’s for sure.
