Monday brought some bad news for the San Francisco 49ers.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that both quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and All-Pro tight end George Kittle will be sidelined for multiple weeks.
Garoppolo is dealing with a high ankle sprain that could have him miss at least six weeks, while Kittle’s regular season is in jeopardy with a broken bone in his foot that’s expected to keep him out eight weeks, per Schefter.
The QB suffered the ankle sprain in Week 2 and appeared to reaggravate it during Sunday’s 37-27 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
As for Kittle, he was jumping to haul in a pass from backup quarterback Nick Mullens. The play was made, but the tight end went to the sideline with 12:36 to play.
San Francisco sits fourth in the NFC West with a 4-4 record.
