"I feel for him". I know how disappointed he is.
Garoppolo left the game late in the fourth quarter with the injury.
There was only 5:17 left, but rather than go for it on fourth-and-goal at the Kansas City 25, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan elected to kick a field goal - keeping it a two-possession game. But it ended in a odd sequence that began with Garoppolo taking the shot from Nelson along the sideline, rather than stepping out of bounds and avoiding the hit.
He completed 20 of 30 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns before leaving the 38-27 loss. "I pray he's not hurt, it's nothing serious, but as a quarterback you should step out of bounds". I haven't had a chance to talk to him yet.
49ers LB Reuben Foster had a rough return from a two-game suspension for violating the league's personal conduct and substance abuse policy. The team's top deep threat will play against the Kansas City Chiefs after missing last week's home opener. "He's a man out there, and he's a very good quarterback; and we're fortunate to have him".

Joe Gomez was rested for the clash, with Matip trusted to start after recovering from his own injury issues. The result extended Liverpool's 100 per cent start to the campaign to seven matches in all competitions.
Traded by the Patriots midway through the 2017 season, Garoppolo started the final five games of the 2017 season for San Francisco, throwing for 1,560 yards and seven touchdowns as the Niners went a ideal 5-0.
Also of note, Malcolm Smith (hamstring) is active and will be making his long-awaited 49ers debut on Sunday.
Unfortunately for San Francisco, its defense will be without strong safety Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder).
