Jimmy Garoppolo was moving along in his rehab from the torn ACL he suffered in Week 3 of the 2018 season.
So, toward the end of minicamp, head coach Kyle Shanahan wanted to get his quarterback a rep or two in 11-on-11s. Shanahan's instructions to his defensive line were to stand still with their hands up and to not touch the franchise quarterback.
"The animals that they are, why we love them, they couldn't help it," Shanahan told ESPN about his defensive line during the drill. "I saw it, so I stopped it. I wasn't going to mess with it."
After the minor heart attack, Shanahan was able to laugh it off.
"I liked it, after I got over it," Shanahan said.
Exhale, Niners fans.

Garoppolo has proclaimed himself "good to go" as training camp approaches, but hopefully, the 49ers' defensive line gets the memo during the next drill.
