Tom Brady shares thoughts on Jimmy Garoppolo's knee injury

The San Francisco 49ers had high hopes for the 2018 season, but just three weeks into the season and their dreams of being a legit contender in the NFC appear to be over.

With Jimmy Garoppolo out for the season with a torn ACL, the 49ers are looking at all their options. The injury deals a serious blow to the 49ers (1-2), who had planned their rebuild around Garoppolo. Garoppolo signed a five-year, $137.5 million contract during the offseason.

Garoppolo suffered the injury while trying to make a play late in the fourth quarter of Sunday's game.

With Garoppolo on the shelf, San Francisco will hand quarterback duties to C.J. Beathard. Savage has a 57.5 percent completion rate with 2,000 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions.

Acquired by trade from the New England Patriots, Garoppolo led the 49ers for a 5-0 record as a starter during the 2017 season.

Beathard started five games as a rookie previous year, completing 54.9 percent of his passes with four touchdowns, six interceptions, 19 sacks, 6.4 yards per attempt and a 69.2 passer rating that was second lowest in the NFL. Beathard was sacked 19 times last season.
