Garoppolo leaves 49ers game against Chiefs on cart with apparent knee injury

49ers injury report Richard Sherman limps off field with help at halftime

Jimmy Garoppolo did indeed tear his ACL in San Francisco's Week 3 loss to the Chiefs. Feel for him personally.

That's when the San Francisco quarterback headed for the sideline, made a decision to stay in play rather step out of bounds, and ultimately put the rest of the 49ers' season in question.

On 3rd-and-goal at Kansas City's 30-yard line, Garoppolo scrambled for 13 yards before stepping awkwardly - his knee appeared to buckle - and absorbing a hit from Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson.

An MRI confirmed Garoppolo tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee on Sunday, the team announced Monday.

Garoppolo signed a five-year deal worth up to $137.5 million last offseason.

For a quarterback, thinking selfishly is actually thinking about the team. 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. He left two during the game due to injury, including Week 2 in 2016 while filling in for Brady in a victory over the Miami Dolphins. 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.

Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston had no problem giving his take. "He's a man out there, and he's a very good quarterback; and we're fortunate to have him".

We're not going to speculate to the severity of the injury.

49ers: The defensive backfield was in tatters by the fourth quarter.
