When the news came Monday that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had suffered a torn ACL, it took players, fans, and analysts by storm. Garoppolo had entered the season with lofty expectations and although he had an up-and-down start, the injury obviously impacts the 49ers this season in a massive way.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter first revealed the news, citing that Garoppolo would indeed miss the remainder of the 2018 NFL season.
Following this, multiple people took to social media in order to voice their support (and a bit of frustration) for the 26-year-old quarterback. The first who spoke up was running back Jerick McKinnon, Garoppolo’s teammate, who suffered a torn ACL of his own during the offseason.
