Update: Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo Breaks Foot Against Dolphins, Is Out For Year

SAN FRANCISCO — 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was knocked out of the game against Miami on Sunday in the first quarter with an ankle injury. It was reported Sunday night that Garoppolo broke his foot and will miss the remainder of the season.

Garoppolo was initially ruled questionable to return, but was announced as out in the second quarter. Garoppolo was hurt after two Dolphins linemen converged on him for a 10-yard sack. Garoppolo was able to walk off the field and sit on the bench, but then was taken to the injury tent for examination and did not return.

Garoppolo led the 49ers to a field goal on the open drive.
