49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo ruled out with left foot injury

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Just eight plays into the San Francisco 49ers' opening drive Sunday, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo departed with a left foot injury.

With 11 minutes, 22 seconds left in the opening quarter, Miami Dolphins linebacker Jerome Baker and end Jaelan Phillips converged on Garoppolo for a sack. Garoppolo attempted to keep his momentum moving forward, and his left foot got caught under Phillips as he was taken down.

Garoppolo slowly hobbled to the sideline and eventually made his way into the blue medical tent before a cart came out to take him to the locker room for further evaluation.
