49ers vs. Colts live score, updates, highlights from NFL ‘Sunday Night Football’ game


Jimmy Garappolo is back for Sunday Night Football’s primetime matchup against the Colts.

The veteran quarterback returned to the 49ers practice this week after suffering a calf injury in Week 4. Rookie Trey Lance took over during the 17-10 loss to the Cardinals but suffered a knee sprain that would prevent him from starting in the Week 7 matchup.

Before exiting the field during the 49ers’ 28-21 loss to the Seahawks, Garoppolo totaled 925 passing yards with five touchdowns. He took advantage of the bye week following Lance’s start to effectively prepare for the start against the Colts.

Carson Wentz will look to extend the Colts winning streak on the road. While he totals 1,545 passing yards with nine touchdowns and one interception, Wentz will rely on the rushing game against the first-ranked defense in the league. Running back Jonathan Taylor has the chance to continue his hot streak after totaling 145 yards and two touchdowns against the Texans. 

The forecast for Sunday’s primetime matchup may have an effect on both teams’ passing. According to the National Weather Service, the matchup will take place during harsh conditions. While the area is under wind advisory until 8:00 p.m. PT, showers are expected with possible thunderstorms throughout the evening. Depending on the severity of the wind, both quarterbacks may struggle to make their targets.
