Jimmy Garoppolo out for season with torn ACL

It's a devastating blow to the 49ers and their young quarterback, who entered the 2018 season with major expectations.

Now the 49ers will have to go back to life before Garoppolo for the rest of the season. The Niners struggled with Beathard last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes. Garoppolo got hurt in the fourth quarter of a 38-27 loss Sunday when he was scrambling toward the sideline and chose to cut up field instead of going out of bounds.

Garoppolo, who signed a $157 million contract in the offseason, left in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game versus the Kansas City Chiefs after he made a scramble to the sidelines and got tackled while trying to gain more yards.




According to The MMQB, the 49ers fear Garoppolo tore his ACL.

Garoppolo had gone 20-of-30 for 251 yards for two touchdown and no interceptions before leaving the game. The team had acquired him in a trade with the New England Patriots during the middle of last season for a second round pick. After playing Sunday without fellow starter Ahkello Witherspoon and appearing entirely out of sorts during a noncompetitive first half, Robert Saleh's "D" visits a unsafe Bolts' WR corps including Comeback Player of the Year Keenan Allen and ascending Mike Williams, the seventh overall pick last year, coming off his first two-TD game.
