Dak Prescott suffered a compound fracture and dislocation of his right ankle that required surgery Sunday night.

Garoppolo suffered an ankle injury in the first quarter of the 49ers' Sept. 20 win against the New York Jets.

"He did a good job," Kyle Shanahan said. "Each day it got better, never felt too sore the next day, so we needed to hear that today and see him out there today, and we feel good to go and he'll be starting Sunday."

C.J. Beathard will serve as Garoppolo's backup this week after replacing Nick Mullens in the closing minutes of last weekend's loss.

The Dallas Cowboys could lose Tyron Smith for the remainder of the 2020 season.

Smith's neck injury flared up in practice following the Cowboys' season opener, and he missed the next two games before returning for Sunday's loss to the Cleveland Browns. But he has suffered a setback.

Smith is seeking a second opinion to find the best way to resolve the issue.

"He's further back than he was this time last week -- would be the best way to describe it," Mike McCarthy said.

Nick Chubb Likely Out Six Weeks With MCL Injury

Oct 5, 2020 2:28 PM

Nick Chubb will miss several weeks after suffering an MCL injury in his right knee.

Doctors believe Chubb will likely miss approximately six weeks.

"What that ends up being, I don't know," Kevin Stefanski said, when asked if the six-week timetable was accurate. "I know Nick Chubb, and I wouldn't put a time frame on it yet.

"Knowing Nick, he's gonna work very hard in rehab. I know that's hard to see your teammate go down like that; but knowing Nick, he will work his butt off to get back."

Kareem Hunt is expected to take over as Cleveland's primary running back with Chubb out.
