They announced Monday that Garoppolo sustained a torn left ACL in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs.

Anthony Crawford Photos: Full Story Of Wendy Martinez Murder Suspect
Tragically, Ms Martinez had just gotten engaged last week, according to her family, with a storybook proposal and a emerald ring. Authorities said they received tips from the community after a surveillance image was released to help identify the suspect.


Garoppolo's ousting is the 49ers second loss after top running back Jerick McKinnon, who endured a season-ending knee injury last month. Beathard was sacked 19 times last season. His loss is a crushing blow for the Niners, who just signed the 26-year-old to the richest contract in National Football League history this offseason and now must turn to backup quarterback C.J. Beathard to salvage their season. He is set to earn an average of $27.5 million per season over the contract's full five-year term, ranking fourth in National Football League history.

Savage spent the summer with the New Orleans Saints in a bid to win the backup quarterback gig, but didn't inspire confidence in the Saints' coaches. This season, he has led the team to a 1-2 record with five touchdowns and three interceptions. But the point is that Savage has started games in the National Football League so teams value that experience, somehow.
