San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot

which will require season-ending surgery, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Jaelan Phillips and Jerome Baker, both sacked Garoppolo, resulting in the injury.

As Phillips fell, Garoppolo's left foot became uncomfortably tangled underneath him.

After making only four passes, Jimmy G hobbled off the field, was taken to the locker room for evaluation, and left the game.

After going from being a starter on the bench to a potential hero for a talented team that is now 8-4 on the season.

Garoppolo, a free agent at the end of the season, is facing a difficult break.

After it seemed at various points this offseason that Garoppolo could be traded or cut.

he had taken Trey Lance's place after the latter sustained a season-ending ankle injury in Week 2.

Shanahan said "I mean, just hearing it, it was pretty crushing,We know what Jimmy has been through, how hard he's worked at this."
