While the knee injury in Week 3 effectively costs $650,000 in total roster bonuses for the remainder of the 2018 season, he will still net $41.35 million for the year, according to Spotrac.

Second-year quarterback C.J. Beathard sat second on the 49ers' quarterback depth chart entering Sunday, starting five games for San Francisco in 2017.

Now the 49ers will have to go back to life before Garoppolo for the rest of the season. The Niners struggled with Beathard last season before the midseason addition of Garoppolo changed their fortunes. He is set to earn an average of $27.5 million per season over the contract's full five-year term, ranking fourth in National Football League history.

The spirit, the cooperation, the empathy, the communication, all of that has improved and good results bring confidence. Souness has no doubts that he would prefer Liverpool's James Milner to Pogba in his side on current form.

Garoppolo injured his left knee while trying to pick up extra yardage late in San Francisco's loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

In the offseason, Savage joined the New Orleans Saints in training camp but was released by the team after they acquitted Teddy Bridgewater via a trade with the New York Jets. This season, he has led the team to a 1-2 record with five touchdowns and three interceptions. He's played in 13 games with nine starts. It's not my first time in the regular season.
