Garoppolo done for season with torn ACL

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo who tore his ACL while making a cut late in a loss at Kansas City Sunday will need season-ending surgery on his injured left knee

Garoppolo will miss the remainder of the 2018 season.

The 49ers officially lost starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the season. Following the game, Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that the team feared Garoppolo had torn ACL and today's MRI revealed the devastating news.

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. He is set to earn an average of $27.5 million per season over the contract's full five-year term, ranking fourth in National Football League history.

Garoppolo got hurt in the fourth quarter of a 38-27 loss Sunday when he was scrambling toward the sideline and chose to cut up field instead of going out of bounds.

Messi and Ronaldo to decide world's best young player
But there will be a relatively little-known Australian, Riley McGree , among them as he eyes the coveted goal of the year award. The former Tottenham midfielder's hopes of breaking the 10-year Messi/Ronaldo duopoly are based on two pillars.

Brady, of course, tore his ACL in the very first game of the 2008 season when he was hit in the knee by a Kansas City Chiefs defender.

The 49ers quarterback was 20/30 for 251 yards and two touchdown passes, along with 23 rushing yards.

The Niners were banking on quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo following up his fantastic close to the 2017 season with another big year. While he hasn't been quite as efficient as he was late past year after being acquired at the trade deadline from New England for a second-round pick, the Niners offense has been far more potent than it was before he took over as quarterback. "It really helps having gone through it and having that experience". Beathard was sacked 19 times last season.
