49ers Confirm Jimmy Garoppolo Out For Season With Torn ACL

Following the game, Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that the team feared Garoppolo had torn ACL and today's MRI revealed the devastating news.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's season-ending knee injury last Sunday occurred less than three games into a massive contract extension that established him as one of the highest-paid players in National Football League history.

Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo spent three and a half seasons together in New England.

Accuser of Trump's Supreme Court pick seeks Federal Bureau of Investigation probe
President Trump told reporters Tuesday that the Federal Bureau of Investigation should not investigate the allegation. Her lawyers previously suggested that the committee's senators question their client, not an outside counsel.

Garoppolo was in his first full season with San Francisco, leading the 49ers to a 1-2 record to start the year.

Garoppolo was carted off the field during the fourth quarter of yesterday's 38-27 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs after his left knee buckled right before making contact with cornerback Steven Nelson. He completed 60 percent of his passes for 718 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions before getting hurt on Sunday. It just sucks. You hate to see people go down, and [Jimmy] is someone I really like and have been friends with since the day he got here.

The Niners were banking on quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo following up his fantastic close to the 2017 season with another big year.
