An MRI on 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo's left knee revealed a torn ACL. His 2018 campaign is over. If this is a clean ACL tear with no other ligament damage, Garoppolo has a good chance to be ready for the start of the 2019 season a little over 11 months from now. QB C.J. Beathard takes over for the rest of this year. He completed 55.3% of his passes and averaged 6.3 yards per attempt in 5 starts late last season. The 'Niners averaged just 14.8 points in those games. Garoppolo's absence will be felt by everyone in this offense.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said in the post-game press conference that the team "fears" a torn ACL for Jimmy Garoppolo. That'd be a season-ending injury for the $137 million QB. Garoppolo will undergo additional tests to confirm the initial diagnosis, and we should get another update tomorrow. The downgrade to backup QB C.J. Beathard is obviously significant, so this is a big blow to all of San Francisco's skill-position guys.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo exited with a left knee injury in the 4th quarter of Sunday's game against the Chiefs. He was carted back to the locker room and "visibly upset," according to insider Matt Maiocco. We'll update Garoppolo's status as soon as we know more. QB C.J. Beathard has entered the game for San Francisco.

The 49ers have agreed to a contract extension with QB Jimmy Garoppolo. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports it's worth $137.5 million, a record high for per-year salary. We'll let the Niners worry about whether the financials make sense. The extension is obviously good news for San Francisco skill players, and Garoppolo performed well for fantasy owners over 5 starts last year with shaky surrounding talent. He looks like a potential QB1 in his 1st full season as a fantasy starter ... but Garoppolo's high-profile finish to 2017 also makes him an excellent candidate to be overdrafted come summertime.

The 49ers confirmed Monday that QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start Sunday at Houston, according to ESPN. He enjoyed a solid debut at Chicago in Week 13, completing 26 of 37 passes (70.3%) for 293 yards with 0 TDs and an INT. The Texans matchup puts Garoppolo on the DFS radar for Week 14, but don't overrate him for season-long leagues.

Injury Predictor

Heading into his 5th pro season, Garoppolo finally gets a shot to start. He lost time to a right shoulder sprain early in 2016 before Tom Brady returned from suspension and the 2017 trade made Garoppolo the Niners' savior. The O-line needs to improve, but the Niners signed C Weston Richburg and drafted OT Mike McGlinchey in Round 1 in hopes of doing just that.
