Jimmy Garropolo Left With An Apparent Knee Injury Against The Chiefs

Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes Breaks Peyton's Record Of 13 TDs In First 3 Games

If there's any quarterback in the National Football League who knows what kind of rehab Jimmy Garoppolo is about to go through, it's Tom Brady.

San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game that the team feared Garoppolo had a torn ACL. "I haven't had a chance to see him yet, but I feel for him".

It is unclear at this point if the 49ers will look to sign a veteran quarterback to replace Garoppolo, of if they'll roll with C.J. Beathard, who started five games last season. The 26-year-old signal-caller saw his left knee buckle before taking a heavy hit from Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson. To add insult to injury, Garoppolo took a vicious hit immediately after the apparent knee injury.

The 49ers went from 60-1 to 200-1 to win the Super Bowl, and 30-1 to 100-1 to win the NFC, at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook.

Garoppolo started the 49ers' first three games, throwing for 718 yards and five touchdowns this season.

It was still 38-24 when the 49ers produced a grinding, 17-play drive that wiped out more than half the fourth quarter. Now, they've lost two of their most important offensive pieces, to say nothing of a series of injuries on defense Sunday that left them with a piecemeal backfield. The Chiefs answered with sacks by Allen Bailey and Justin Houston on consecutive plays, then flushed Garoppolo from the pocket on third-and-goal from the 20-yard line. "We'll all be men about it".
