The San Francisco 49ers believe they have lost starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the season. The team believes he suffered a torn ACL and MCL.

He suffered the injury late in the fourth quarter on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. He got popped by a Chiefs defensive player on a run play.

Instead of going out of bounds, Garoppolo attempted to get more yards. That’s when he was hit hard by cornerback Steven Nelson. The 49ers said he suffered a knee injury on the play.

“It sucks,” 49ers tight end George Kittle said. “Jimmy’s a great quarterback and the leader of our team. But it’s football and it’s just the nature of the game.”

He’s expected to undergo an MRI on Monday. That’s when the 49ers are expected to confirm the news.

C.J. Beathard is Garoppolo’s backup. The 49ers may go out and add an additional signal-caller.

“I have a lot of confidence in C.J.,” 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said. “He got a lot of playing time last year and led us to our first win. He came in today and made a hell of a throw on fourth down (a seven-yard touchdown pass to Kittle that was called back because of offensive pass interference). C.J. is a gamer. Everyone in here has a ton of respect for C.J. and how he handles himself.”

Garoppolo has gone 33 of 59 for 467 passing yards. He also has three touchdowns and three interceptions.

He also has five carries for ten yards.

In the off-season, the 49ers signed Garoppolo to a five-year extension worth $137.5 million in February.
