The #49ers fear a serious knee injury for QB Jimmy Garoppolo, I’m told. That’s what it appeared, as well, a non-contact knee injury that saw him carted off.

Welp it looks like Jimmy Garoppolo season is done because “non-contact knee injury” is basically just a synonym for a torn ACL.
Worst part is that this injury looked entirely preventable. Jimmy G had already picked up the enough yards on this third down scramble to pick up the first and should have just stepped out of bounds instead of juking his way into a shredded ACL.

Sucks to see Jimmy go through this and while he hasn’t officially been diagnosed with a torn ACL, I would be shocked if there was any other outcome.
