Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo delivered once again when his number got called. On November 26, the San Francisco 49ers finally used Garoppolo in a game. The 49ers traded for the multiple-time Super Bowl winner in October from the New England Patriots.

The San Francisco 49ers hosted the Seattle Seahawks Sunday and suffered another loss (24-13). However, there were some positives in the game, including the brief but impressive 49ers debut of Jimmy Garoppolo.

In the fourth quarter of the contest, with just over a minute remaining, 49ers starting quarterback C.J.

Beathard left. The rookie got hit which led to an injured left leg. With Beathard out, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan entered Garoppolo to the game to the delight of the crowd at the Levi's Stadium.

Garoppolo did not disappoint Shanahan, the 49ers, and the fans who stayed at Levi's Stadium. In a relief performance, the 26-year-old completed 2-of-2 pass attempts for 18 yards and a touchdown. Garoppolo connected with wide receiver Louis Murphy for the score. According to ESPN, it was the first touchdown the 49ers had in two meetings with the Seahawks this season.

Not enough?

Unfortunately for Jimmy Garoppolo, his exciting debut with the San Francisco 49ers may not have been enough for him to capture the starting job.

Following the loss, statements made by 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan suggest that Garoppolo remains a backup.

"It's a tough position to be in and you don't want anyone to get hurt, but Jimmy will have another week," Shanahan said according to ESPN. He stated that they are going to work with Garoppolo on Monday and Tuesday, then "see what happens at practice Wednesday." The 49ers coach added that Garoppolo's performance has no effect on the quarterback decision he must make ahead of their Week 13 matchup with the Chicago Bears.

Beathard's status

ESPN mentioned in its report that quarterback C.J. Beathard made it to his post-game press conference. However, Beathard limped on his way to the podium. The 24-year-old shared that he is set to undergo an MRI on November 27. The starting passer for the San Francisco 49ers admitted that he also hurt his hip.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is wishing that it is just a minor injury.

In seven appearances (five starts) for Shanahan and the 49ers this season, Beathard recorded 123 completions (224 attempts) for 1,430 yards and four touchdowns. Beathard tallied six interceptions in those games, and he got sacked 19 times.
