What difference can five days make.
Jimmy Garoppolo had a big night on Monday from his first ACL action since last September, but in Saturday night's 49th dress exercise, the 27-year-old put his age on his knee through 14 out of 20 pass pass for 188 yards and pass 20-yard pass in San Francisco 27-17 on the CEOs.
“You must ignore it and play football,” says Garoppolo with reporters. “I thought it was a good step coming back to K.C., where it all started. So, just do that. It is another step in the right direction. ”
Garoppolo went 1-to-6 with zero rod and interception on Monday against the Broncos, ending with a 0.0 person rating. He also has several acute days in operation, including a five-day interval.
“I don't think it is a big surprise when a man is out for a long time and especially coming out of ACL,” said coach 49, Kyle Shanahan. “But that's how football sometimes goes, especially in the season. Last week was not as bad as it was last week, but it certainly seemed alive. And today everyone on the same page was a little better, we moved the chains a few times, and you just have a rhythm and you start to forget things and playing football. ”
Garoppolo was back at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City where he suffered a knee injury during Week 3 last year. Before the game Garoppolo went to the spot when his 2018 season ended.
“A lot has happened in the year ago,” he said. “I thought it would be good to go back there to remember everything I have gone on.” T
