Garoppolo leaves 49ers game against Chiefs on cart with apparent knee injury

Patrick Mahomes tossed three more touchdowns - to three different receivers - and the Kansas City Chiefs held off the San Francisco 49ers, 38-27, to improve to 3-0.

The injury deals a serious blow to the 49ers (1-2), who had planned their rebuild around Garoppolo and now must turn again to C.J. Beathard at quarterback.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in the game against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on September 23rd, 2018.

Chiefs: LB Dee Ford left with a groin injury in the fourth quarter.

The two individual touchdown passes that culminated in the National Football League record were 12 yards in length, the first and second to Demetrius Harris and Sammy Watkins respectively, and a third pass was caught for 4 yards by Chris Conley within the red zone. Cornerback Richard Sherman left the game with a calf injury, while his replacement Jaquiski Tartt also exited early with an apparent wrist injury.




The 49ers' fears have been confirmed. "I feel for him, personally".

Still, the 49ers leaned on running backs Alfred Morris and Matt Breida and the strong arm of their quarterback to mount a comeback. The 49ers loss topped off its third consecutive losing streak in Kansas City.

"I think that was his fault", said Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston, who was trailing the play.

Garoppolo suffered the knee injury in the final quarter against Kansas City after scrambling down the sideline in hopes of gathering extra yardage. And when we show up Wednesday it's time to go. They make one more trip to the Midwest for a regular-season game this year, October 15 at Green Bay for Monday Night Football. "It's what you have to do", he added. "We're not the first team this has happened to".

49ers: Play the Chargers in Los Angeles next Sunday.
