Jimmy Garoppolo injury: 49ers quarterback leaves for locker room vs. Chiefs

Jimmy Garoppolo injury: 49ers quarterback leaves for locker room vs. Chiefs

Then Garoppolo had to leave after his leg buckled before he took a big hit from Chiefs defensive back Steve Nelson on the sideline.

Nelson lowered his shoulder and really laid into Jimmy G, who was clearly a runner on this play.

Garoppolo took off on a running play and instead of taking the angle out of bounds against the Chiefs, he attempted to earn some more yards by cutting back into the field of play.

Garoppolo will undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm the severity of the injury.

Jimmy G's meteoric rise has been well-document, and we can only hope it isn't halted anytime soon.


Rather than go for it on fourth down at the Kansas City 25, Shanahan elected to kick a field goal - keeping it a two-possession game.

Garoppolo came into action having thrown for 467 yards and three touchdowns. "I haven't got a chance to see him yet, but I feel for him". Mahomes achieved the distinction in the 2nd quarter of the ongoing matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, where outgoing QB Alex Smith started his career. "I told him I'll be praying for him and I love him and he just told me to lead these guys". "He's a man out there, and he's a very good quarterback; and we're fortunate to have him".

Strong safety Jaquiski Tartt did not suit up for Sunday's game because of a shoulder injury, and Antone Exum started in his place. And in the second quarter, free safety Adrian Colbert left the game with a hip injury.

Soon after, Garoppolo left the game on a cart and did not return. Conley briefly left with a right ankle injury, though he returned to make his TD catch.
