Jimmy Garoppolo left the team’s Week 2 win over the New York Jets at halftime. He was replaced in the second half by backup Nick Mullens and is now considered “likely” to start against the Giants next week.
Mullens played in eight games for the 49ers in 2018 and one game last season. The 49ers were 3-5 in the 2018 season in the games in which Mullens played. The Giants defeated San Francisco, 27-23, on November 12 of that season.
As far as other injury news for the 49ers...
#49ers fear Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas tore ACL in left knees, coach Kyle Shanahan announces— Cam Inman (@CamInman) September 20, 2020
Bosa was going up against Jets tight end Trevon Wesco on a running play and his left leg gave out as he attempted to get off the block. He tried to sit up after falling to the field, but was soon carted off the to the locker room.
Bosa was selected to the Pro Bowl last season and represents a big loss to San Francisco moving forward.
Defensive tackle Solomon Thomas suffered a left knee injury and also had to be carted off the field during the game.
The injuries keep piling up for San Francisco, which started Sunday’s game without star tight end George Kittle (knee sprain), cornerback Richard Sherman (strained calf), receiver Deebo Samuel (foot) and defensive end Dee Ford (neck).
