49ers Fear QB Jimmy Garoppolo Suffered Torn ACL

49ers Fear QB Jimmy Garoppolo Suffered Torn ACL

With under six minutes to play and the 49ers driving, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo scrambled toward the sideline before trying to lower a shoulder on Chiefs corner Steve Nelson.

San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game that the team feared Garoppolo had a torn ACL.

"We'll find out tomorrow", Shanahan told reporters after San Francisco's 38-27 loss. I just did not feel that we played good in all three phases.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was carted from Sunday's game after suffering a left knee injury against the Chiefs. Garoppolo, who was near the sideline, saw his knee buckle as he braced for a hit from Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson.

Less if you include the worldwide breaks. 'Maybe we should have gone a bit more down the wings and put in more crosses into the box.

Garoppolo scrambled for a 13-yard gain on the fateful play, but it came on 3rd-and-goal from the 20-yard line, and he was almost 10 yards away from the end zone when he tried to plant his foot and cut back near the left sideline.

After gaining 13 yards, Garoppolo had the choice between stepping out of bounds or staying in and taking a hit from a defender. Garoppolo, who signed a five-year $137.5 million extension in February, expects his season is over, according to teammate C.J. Beathard.

For a quarterback, thinking selfishly is actually thinking about the team. He left two during the game due to injury, including Week 2 in 2016 while filling in for Brady in a victory over the Miami Dolphins. Cornerback Richard Sherman injured his calf and will be out a few weeks according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. A quarterback as agile and athletic as Garoppolo is a blessing, but as Sunday came and went, it's a curse, too.
