49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a practice day he'll likely want to forget: He threw five straight interceptions. 

NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco reportshe threw interceptions to Richard Sherman, Ahkello Witherspoon, Jaquiski Tartt and Tarvarius Moore (twice).

He finally ended the streak with a touchdown pass to Jalen Hurd.

"He threw it to the wrong team five plays in a row," Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said. "I was a defensive coach today, so I was pumped. But no, the defense did great today and obviously he struggled.

"You hope to never have a day like that, but I don't think it's never not happened to anyone. When you do that, you hope you can practice long enough and give him a chance to play out of it and use it as an opportunity that hopefully you can do in a game. Hopefully you don't have five in the game, but you can play yourself out of two in a row or something like that."

Garoppolo is expected to make his first on-field appearance since he tore his ACL last year on Monday when the 49ers take on the Broncos in a preseason contest.
