With their starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo injured and on the sidelines, the San Francisco 49ers lost to the Seattle Seahawks 28-21 on Sunday.

Garoppolo was 6-for-6 for 70 yards and a touchdown before he had to be sidelined for the second half after he injured his right calf during an opening drive.

“I felt something go in the calf,” Garappolo said post-game. “In between series I could feel it tightening up. Felt like I could gut it out. I tried to for the first half. It’s just tough, man. I’ve been in this situation too many times. It’s getting real old.”

Rookie QB Trey Lance replaced Garoppolo to start the second half and played for the remainder of the game. He completed 9 of 18 for 157 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions and had seven rushes for 41 yards.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has no choice but to trust Lance for the upcoming weeks.

“We’ve been playing with rookie running backs since the second play of the first game and we’ve got a rookie quarterback right now,” Shanahan said. “Hopefully, Jimmy is better, and not as bad as we think, but Trey is here for a reason. You want to give him time, you want him to be fully ready, but you don’t always have that luxury.”

Garoppolo is set to have an MRI on his right calf Monday morning. The 29-year-old believes he did not injure his Achilles.

“It feels like just the calf right now,” Garoppolo said. “I’m hopeful it will just be a couple of weeks or something like that.”
