An MRI on Monday confirmed the San Francisco 49ers' fears: Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo tore his ACL and his season is over, the team announced
Minutes after the 49ers' 38-27 defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said the team feared that Garoppolo suffered an ACL injury.
Garoppolo's injury occurred with about 5:35 left in Sunday's game. On third-and-goal from Kansas City's 20, Garoppolo felt pressure from Chiefs defensive end Justin Houston on his right side. Garoppolo evaded Houston and scrambled down the left sideline.
According to 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan, the plan is to move forward with Beathard as the starter. Good luck with that.
