Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Justin Houston says Jimmy Garoppolo has no one to blame but himself if he suffered a season-ending knee injury as feared.
“That was his fault,” Houston told reporters. “I pray he’s not hurt, nothing serious, but as a quarterback you should step out of bounds. It was only an inch. That inch wouldn’t have made a difference. You got the yardage you need, you step out of bounds. You got to be smart.”
Garoppolo went down in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 38-27 loss to Kansas City when he attempted to cut back inside on a scramble to avoid Chiefs defenders. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback was carted off the field, and coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed the team fears he has a torn ACL.
