49ers lose Jimmy Garoppolo to season-ending knee injury

It's a devastating blow to the 49ers and their young quarterback, who entered the 2018 season with major expectations.

Brady suffered his torn ACL is in the 2008 season opener against. wait for it. the Chiefs in Kansas City.

With Garoppolo on the shelf, San Francisco will hand quarterback duties to C.J. Beathard.

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. San Francisco won the final five games last year after Garoppolo took over as starter and the team rewarded him with a $137.5 million, five-year contract.

Garoppolo's first full season with the 49ers finishes with 718 passing yards, five touchdowns, and three interceptions.

San Francisco, which sits at 1-2 after Week 3, is 6-2 with Garoppolo under center since he came over from the New England Patriots last October - and 1-10 without him.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan has already stated to reporters that he is happy with the quarterbacks on his roster, but who's to say we can't speculate a trade brewing between the 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles for a certain Super Bowl 52 MVP? "This time around it'll be a little easier".
