Jimmy Garoppolo carted off as 49ers fall to Chiefs

Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes Breaks Peyton's Record Of 13 TDs In First 3 Games

Chiefs' Patrick Mahomes Breaks Peyton's Record Of 13 TDs In First 3 Games

Before long, Garoppolo was wheeled to the locker room on the back of the cart, with the team anxious about a left knee injury.

The team fears Garoppolo tore his left anterior cruciate ligament. "We'll find out more tomorrow".

Garoppolo left the game late in the fourth quarter with the injury that happened as he scrambled for extra yardage near the sideline and took a hard but clean hit from Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson. "It was when we lost our starting running back, too", Shanahan added.

The Kansas City Chiefs quarterback has 13 touchdown passes, breaking the record of 12 for the first three games of a season set by Denver's Peyton Manning in 2013. They finally settled for a field goal on their final trip inside the 20, one on which they advanced no deeper than the Niners' 19-yard line. I just had to laugh and tell her that no it's not supposed to be that easy, but right now, Mahomes is playing the National Football League like a kid playing Madden on rookie level. Obviously, feel for him personally. "I knew that from the day we met, when we got drafted together".

Beathard said he spoke to Garoppolo briefly in the trainer's room, and what little of their exchange he was willing to repeat made it quite clear the 49ers' franchise quarterback - who signed a five-year, $137.5 million extension in February - expects his season to be over. I haven't had a chance to talk to him yet. CB Richard Sherman left with a calf injury, FS Adrian Colbert hurt his ankle and backup CB Tarvarius Moore left with a wrist injury.




Garoppolo completed 20-of-30 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns in the 38-27 loss Sunday.

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

Exactly how this impacts the remainder of San Francisco's season is yet to be determined, although it can't look good.

49ers: Play the Chargers in Los Angeles next Sunday.

The 49ers have a great opportunity to get their backs involved in the passing game and I believe that is going to be the true "X factor" for the team.
