It just sucks. You hate to see people go down, and (Jimmy) is someone I really like and have been friends with since the day he got here.
"We fear an ACL", Shanahan said afterward.
FILE: Trainers attend to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (10) who was injured after a tackle by Kansas City Chiefs defensive back during the second half of a game in Kansas City, MO. Garoppolo, who was near the sideline, saw his knee buckle as he braced for a hit from Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson.
"That's our time in the game", Reid said. "They're going backward and we're going forward and it's all good". Beathard operating as the starter. "I feel for him, personally".
Beathard is in line to start next week when the 49ers play the Chargers in Los Angeles, and Nick Mullens could get a call-up from the practice squad to serve as the backup.
49ers LB Reuben Foster had a rough return from a two-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct and substance abuse policy.
The young quarterback underwent an MRI on his knee this morning. SS Jaquiski Taylor was already inactive with a shoulder injury. It was Garoppolo's 11-yard pass to Marquis Goodwin early in the third quarter that started the comeback, and Morris scored on a short touchdown run later in the quarter to make it 35-24.
During his weekly interview with WEEI in Boston, Brady was asked about Garoppolo's injury, and from the sound of it, the 41-year-old definitely empathizes with his former teammate.
