He was officially ruled out for the rest of the game with about two and a half minutes left to play, and the Chiefs closed out their win. "I pray he's not hurt, nothing serious, but as a quarterback you should step out of bounds", Houston said after the game, which the Chiefs won 38-27. It was only an inch. That inch wouldn't have made a difference.
After gaining 13 yards, Garoppolo had the choice between stepping out of bounds or staying in and taking a hit from a defender. "You gotta be smart and think about your team".
"With Jimmy we're fearing ACL", Shanahan said. The 49ers are 1-2 this year. Feel for him personally.
49ers Fear Jimmy Garoppolo Suffered Torn ACL Against Chiefs
Garoppolo's left knee buckled just before the Chiefs' cornerback delivered a shoulder-to-shoulder blow, and that was the reason he went down so hard. Quarterbacks are the most valuable players on any team. Garoppolo, who signed a five-year $137.5 million extension in February, expects his season is over, according to teammate C.J. Beathard. Practice squad member Nick Mullen is the only other QB now on the Niners' roster.
"I feel awful for him", Brady said.
Garoppolo wasn't the only Niner to pick up an injury on Sunday. Cornerback Richard Sherman left the game with a calf injury, while his replacement Jaquiski Tartt also exited early with an apparent wrist injury. "They're going backward and we're going forward and it's all good".
Unlike Brady, who was throwing a pass when he was injured back in 2008, Garoppolo suffered his injury while trying to scramble.
