his teammates from a hotel just days after undergoing reconstructive knee surgery when he saw quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's knee buckle.McKinnon knew immediately what Garoppolo was enduring 49ers Adrian Colbert Jersey , having torn his own anterior cruciate ligament just three weeks earlier."When you have an injury like this, a season-ending injury, there's emotion that comes with it at first," McKinnon said Wednesday. "When I saw the play that ended his season, I already knew what he was going through. For me and him to have somebody to go through that experience with and not be alone and push each other along the way will definitely help."McKinnon reached out to Garoppolo as soon as the game in Kansas City ended on Sept. 23. McKinnon told him what his experience was like after getting hurt in practice on Sept. 1 and how he dealt with the pain and stiffness following surgery.Garoppolo had his surgery Wednesday to repair his left knee. Coach Kyle Shanahan said he didn't know whether any additional damage needed to be repaired or whether Garoppolo would be recovered in time for the offseason program next spring.But he will have a partner in rehabilitation in McKinnon."Jimmy's a warrior Cheap Mike McGlinchey Jersey ," McKinnon said. "I'm pretty sure that he has the same mindset I had in the whole situation and recovery process. The only thing we can do is push each other through these next nine months."Garoppolo and McKinnon were being counted on to lead San Francisco's offense after Garoppolo signed a five-year, $137.5 million contract in the offseason and McKinnon joined the Niners as a free agent with a four-year, $30 million deal.But McKinnon got hurt a week before the season opener and Garoppolo went down in Week 3, when he tried to plant and cut up field instead of running out of bounds late in a loss to the Chiefs.Those injuries dealt a major blow to the 49ers (1-3), who are now going with C.J. Beathard at quarterback and Matt Breida at running back. San Francisco hosts Arizona on Sunday."It's a huge challenge Cheap Fred Warner Jersey ," Shanahan said. "It's the biggest challenge I think in our game. It's a challenge that a lot of people deal with, that I've had to deal with in my career before. ... Chalk a lot of that up to just luck."Breida has rushed for 316 yards and is averaging 7.6 yards per carry so far this season.Beathard lost four of five starts as a rookie last year before Garoppolo took over and had the second-lowest passer rating of any qualifying quarterback. He looked better in his first start this year, throwing for a career-high 298 yards and two TDs in a loss at the Chargers."I think just getting the ball out quicker and making reads quicker is definitely a big part of it," he said. "A lot of that has to do with the offense just slowing down for me. I'm able to go through progressions quicker and stuff like that. But, there's a lot of things in the offseason 49ers Brock Coyle Jersey , just little things that you want to critique so you can get better at."NOTES: The Niners were without three starting offensive linemen at practice with LT Joe Staley, C Weston Richburg and RT Mike McGlinchey all sidelined. Shanahan wasn't certain if any would be able to return this week. ... CB Richard Sherman and WR Marquise Goodwin also did not practice and WE Dante Pettis is out this week with a knee injury. ... WR Victor Bolden Jr. returned to practice after a four-game suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances. The 49ers don't need to make a roster move to activate Bolden until next Monday. The 49ers announced on Sunday morning that they will be releasing linebacker Reuben Foster after he was arrested on a domestic violence charge at the team’s hotel in Tampa this weekend.Foster is accused of hitting Elissa Ennis, who is the same woman who recanted the accusation of domestic violence that led to Foster’s arrest in the offseason. There was at least one other incident between the two in October of this year.The San Francisco Chronicle reports that a report of domestic violence was made to Santa Clara police, but Foster was not arrested. The 49ers told the Chronicle that they were unaware of any October incident or report.According to Tampa police, Foster “slapped her phone out of her hand http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-k_waun-williams-jersey , pushed her in the chest area, and slapped her with an open hand on the left side of her face” during the incident that led to his arrest. Foster was released from jail after posting a $2,000 bond.
