Analysis: "You never know if you're going to play a little or a lot," said Garoppolo, who played two quarters and then went out for two more series in the second half. "When he put me back in, I was happy to get back out there with the guys." Unless Brady gets injured, these exhibition games are probably Garoppolo's only chance before he is eligible for free agency at the end of the season to show other teams he can play.
