49ers announced they have placed QB Jimmy Garoppolo on the Injured Reserve List and promoted QB Nick Mullens to the active roster from the team’s practice squad.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 26, 2018
Garoppolo had 718 yards, five touchdowns and three interceptions before going down with the injury. The team has now lost their star quarterback to go along with their starting running back, Jerick McKinnon.
The franchise quarterback signed a five-year, $137.5 million extension with the team before the season began. Now, he'll have to wait till 2019 to make an impact in SF.
