Jimmy Garoppolo out for a year and 49ers Super Bowl hopes hit

The San Francisco 49ers’ push for a Super Bowl has taken a serious hit.

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has broken his left foot and will miss the rest of the season, coach Kyle Shanahan said after a 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.

The 49ers turned to third-string quarterback Brock Purdy to lead their offense and relied on the best defense in the NFL to piss off Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and win their fifth straight game. But it was very expensive.

“Just hearing it is quite overwhelming. We know what Jimmy went through and how hard he worked,” Shanahan told reporters after the game.

“It was such a special win, but mixed emotions hearing about Jimmy.”

Garoppolo was injured and taken down during the first quarter. The streak was not pleasant considering what the 49ers hope to accomplish this season.
