MRI confirms 49ers' Garoppolo tears ACL

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will need season-ending surgery on his injured left knee.

The 49ers said Monday that an MRI confirmed the team's fears that Garoppolo tore his ACL while making a cut late in a loss at Kansas City. The injury deals a serious blow to the 49ers (1-2), who had planned their rebuild around Garoppolo.

Now San Francisco must go through the season with C.J. Beathard at quarterback. The Niners struggled with Beathard and Brian Hoyer last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes. San Francisco won the final five games last year after Garoppolo took over as starter and the team rewarded him with a $137.5 million, five-year contract.

Packers DL Wilkerson out for season

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The Green Bay Packers lost at Washington on Sunday, and Mike Daniels lost one of his "buddies" when fellow defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson sustained a season-ending ankle injury.

"You never want to see anybody go down. You don't want to see your worst enemy go down out there," Daniels said Monday. "When you see one of your buddies go down, that makes it even worse. Mo and I are pretty close. He sits right next to me on the plane. I'm like, fudge. It's just all bad."

The Pittsburgh Steelers are off to a rough start -- on and off the field -- and it doesn't figure to get any easier when they visit the suddenly potent Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night.

Pittsburgh first-team All-Pro running back Le'Veon Bell is holding out and first-team All-Pro wide receiver Antonio Brown didn't report for work Monday, and implied on Twitter that he wanted to be traded. But the Steelers' biggest problem could be Tampa Bay quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.
