Kyle Shanahan 49ers fear ACL injury for Jimmy Garoppolo

After the Chiefs tacked on a field goal early in the fourth to extend their lead, the 49ers came back with a grinding, 17-play drive that wiped out more than half the period. The 26-year-old pivot had the opportunity to step out of bounds, as he was near the sideline, but his leg appeared to get caught in the turf before Garoppolo took a hard hit from Chiefs cornerback Steven Nelson.

Inside linebacker Reuben Foster was among the 49ers who checked on Garoppolo, and Foster said the quarterback's expression was a clue to the expected severity of the injury. The hit was clean and Garoppolo was foolish not to go out of bounds to avoid it. On his next possession, Mahomes made one of his best plays of the season, breaking the pocket to his left before reversing field with a defender in pursuit and firing a 13-yard laser to TE Demetrius Harris in the back right corner of the end zone. "I pray he's not hurt, nothing serious, but as a quarterback you should step out of bounds", Houston said after the game, which the Chiefs won 38-27. "I was like, 'Hey, brother, we've got you. You've got to be smart, think about your team". It looked like a potentially serious injury to the player the 49ers traded for last year and gave one of the biggest contracts in National Football League history this year.
