San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo could miss the rest of the period in the wake of enduring another, more terrible lower leg sprain against the Seattle Seahawks throughout the end of the week. All-Pro tight end George Kittle likewise could miss the rest of the period with a foot fracture, which implies San Francisco’s odds of making the end of the season games are slim.
Regardless of the season playoff odds, Garoppolo actually is gathering different sentiments from medical experts prior to choosing whether to go through a lower leg medical procedure, which would end his season, as per head coach Kyle Shanahan.
Garoppolo is required to be set on injured reserve, which means he’ll miss San Francisco’s next three games against the Green Bay Packers, New Orleans Saints, and Los Angeles Rams. With a 4-4 record, those games could decide if the 49ers make the end of the season games … furthermore, things aren’t searching up for Shanahan’s team.
“When you have those high ankle sprains, you reinjure them a lot,” Shanahan said, according to ESPN’s Nick Wagoner. “But it was different the way that he did it, so it’s basically doing it all over again in a different way. … Whatever’s best for him, long term, is obviously what we’ll decide on. But if he does need the surgery, then it’ll be all year; if not, then hoping six weeks, get a chance to get back at the end.”
Reinforcement quarterback Nick Mullens is set to begin on Thursday against Green Bay, and it won’t be simple for him to bring down Aaron Rodgers and the 5-2 Packers.
On the off chance that San Francisco loses its next three games, dropping to 4-7 on the campaign, it would make sense for Garoppolo to settle on surgery instead of continuing to play with the chance of harming himself much more.
