He is expected to miss the remainder of the season.

The San Francisco 49ers got a wrench thrown in their season when their starting quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, went down with a serious knee injury that effectively ruled him out for the rest of the 2018 National Football League campaign.

Second-year quarterback C.J. Beathard sat second on the 49ers' quarterback depth chart entering Sunday, starting five games for San Francisco in 2017.

Minutes after the news of Garoppolo's injury was confirmed, Matt Maiocco revealed that the 49ers will work out former Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage.

White House: Rosenstein, Trump Talked; Will Meet Again Later in Week
It was not immediately clear whether he would be sacked, or would resign first, the reports said . Mr Rosenstein was due to attend a meeting in the White House on Monday.


The Niners struggled with Beathard and Brian Hoyer last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes. Garoppolo signed a five-year, $137.5 million contract during the offseason.

Savage's run as a starter was unimpressive at best, winning just 2 of 7 contests while completing 57.5-percent of his throws with a 5:7 touchdown:interception ratio.

Brady, of course, tore his ACL in the very first game of the 2008 season when he was hit in the knee by a Kansas City Chiefs defender.

Savage last played in an National Football League regular-season game previous year, when he showed up on the field for eight games for the Houston Texans.
