The San Francisco 49ers just lost the star they hoped would help raise their fortunes. While the knee injury in Week 3 effectively costs $650,000 in total roster bonuses for the remainder of the 2018 season, he will still net $41.35 million for the year, according to Spotrac.

The Chiefs' defense responded by sacking Garoppolo on consecutive plays before flushing him from the pocket on the third-and-goal from the 20-yard line.

Garoppolo's left knee buckled just before the Chiefs' cornerback delivered a shoulder-to-shoulder blow, sending Garoppolo down.

The quarterback went down late in the fourth quarter after cutting back into the field instead of stepping out of bounds at the end of a quarterback scramble. Savage also started in seven of those games, as Houston relied on him to orchestrate the team's passing attack in lieu of Deshaun Watson, who suffered a season-ending injury in November. As the team explores its quarterback options, fans on Twitter made it known that they want to see the civil rights activist and face of Nike wear a 49ers jersey again. Among the ideas to salvage the year was to sign Colin Kaepernick, who was on the team from 2011-2016 and led the 49ers to the 2012 Super Bowl.

With Garoppolo on the shelf, San Francisco will hand quarterback duties to C.J. Beathard.
