49ers fear Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL

  • Jimmy Garoppolo being carted off in game against Chiefs

The 49ers' game plan was essentially thrown out the window after Kansas City got off to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter, meaning Shanahan and Co. would have to play "come from behind" football - a situation they could ill afford to do.

The counter-argument is that Garoppolo is a competitor trying to make a play to help his team win.

Garoppolo won all five of his starts last season, leading to a $137.5 million contract this past offseason.

Kyle Shanahan was watching as Jimmy Garoppolo scrambled toward the 49ers sideline and, rather than safely duck out of bounds, stepped back to his right and took a wicked shot from Steven Nelson. He was then carted to the locker room.

The injury deals a serious blow to the 49ers (1-2), who had planned their rebuild around Garoppolo and now must turn again to C.J. Beathard at quarterback.

Tiger Woods can win the 2018 FedExCup title. Here's how
Woods enters the final day of the 2018 PGA Tour season in a stunning, completely unexpected position: the lead. Only two bogeys reminded fans Woods was human, the latter coming after a poor tee shot on the par-4 16th.

For a quarterback, thinking selfishly is actually thinking about the team.

Garoppolo appeared to sustain the injury prior to the collision.

Not too much good, a whole lot of bad and too much ugly from the San Francisco 49ers' 38-27 Week 3 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. CB Richard Sherman left with a calf injury, FS Adrian Colbert hurt his ankle and backup CB Tarvarius Moore left with a wrist injury. Mahomes was also held out of the end zone after intermission and fumbled for the second time this season (though he recovered it himself once again).

Still, the 49ers leaned on running backs Alfred Morris and Matt Breida and the strong arm of their quarterback to mount a comeback. You step out of bounds. The 49ers' only other QB is Nick Mullins, a member of the practice squad.
