">NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo, head coach Kyle Shanahan says Garoppolo will be limited in tonight's practice for San Francisco.

Garoppolo threw for 172 yards, zero touchdowns and one interception during Sunday's win over the Cowboys. Through 15 starts in the regular season, he logged 3,810 yards, 20 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.

San Francisco stars Fred Warner (ankle) and Nick Bosa (concussion) were also injured during this past weekend's game. Like Garoppolo, Warner will be limited for this evening's workout. Bosa remains out for today's practice and is listed as questionable for the Niners' divisional round matchup.

Battered by a long NFL season, the 49ers will look to work their way past the No. 1-seed Green Bay Packers on Saturday night.
