Chiefs linebacker on Garoppolo's knee injury: 'That was his fault'

The 49ers (1-2) rallied behind running backs Matt Breida and Alfred Morris, who kept gouging the Chiefs' defensive front, and Jimmy Garoppolo, who threw for 251 yards and two scores.

In the immediate aftermath of Garoppolo sustaining a knee injury that was diagnosed as a torn ACL in his left knee (an MRI will be performed Monday to confirm the team's fears), Beathard entered Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Garoppolo easily could have ran out of bounds - the Niners went for it on fourth down anyway - but instead received a crushing blow from Kansas City safety Steven Nelson in addition to buckling his knee.

Stay tuned for further updates. It's only an inch. It featured all of his touchdowns, including a wild scramble that led to the first-year starter somehow finding Chris Conley in the back of the end zone to make it 21-7 in the second quarter.

"It's a tough injury". I just did not feel that we played good in all three phases. And Beathard will be expected to play at a high level and give the 49ers a chance to win, according to his coaches and teammates.

With Garoppolo feared lost for the season, it appears that C.J. Beathard will reassume the starting job he lost about a month after Garoppolo was acquired in a trade previous year from the Patriots.

Beathard was only other quarterback the 49ers had on the 53-man roster to start the season, so assuming Garoppolo's has a torn ACL an addition will need to be made. Everyone in here has a ton of respect for C.J., how he handles himself. "We had a lot of things schemed around him, same as we do with Jimmy".
