49ers coach Kyle Shanahan said team has not discussed bringing back Colin Kaepernick. Shanahan said that discussion took place last year but based on the style of offense he prefers, Kaepernick isn't right fit.

Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said 49ers will work out multiple quarterbacks tomorrow, including Tom Savage, T.J. Yates and Kellen Clemens. He said Matt Moore is another possibility. The plan right now is to elevate Nick Mullens from practice squad and another quarterback could then be added.

49ers' Sherman (calf) out 'a couple weeks'

A calf strain is expected to keep 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman out for "a couple weeks," coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed Monday afternoon.

Tom Brady shared empathy for injured QB Jimmy Garoppolo, saying on sports radio WEEI on Monday morning: "It's a tough injury. I feel bad for Jimmy ... it sucks. You hate to see someone go down, someone I really like and have been friends with since the day he got here."

With concern that Jimmy Garoppolo could be out for the season, the 49ers go from 60-1 to 200-1 to win the Super Bowl at Westgate.

49ers fear Garoppolo tore ACL in loss to Chiefs

The San Francisco 49ers fear quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo tore the ACL in his left knee late in Sunday's game, coach Kyle Shanahan said after his team's 38-27 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers fell way behind early, mounted a spirited second-half comeback and came up short. But none of that matters as much as the health of starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Garoppolo left with 5:35 to go after suffering a left knee injury. No less than the Niners' season hangs in the balance as they await further information on his status.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

Not that a slow start is ever a good thing but the 49ers are already in serious danger against the Chiefs, who are the last team you want to start slow against. It's 14-0 with over two minutes left in the first quarter. Missed tackles, dropped passes, silly penalties main culprits, in addition to the Chiefs' dynamic offense.

49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin is active today. He missed most of the first game against Minnesota and was inactive last week against Detroit with a deep thigh bruise. Good news for the Niners, who have missed his speed in the passing game.

With Jaquiski Tartt out with a shoulder injury today, the 49ers will start Antone Exum Jr. in his place. Exum will be making his fourth career start.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Marquise Goodwin is ACTIVE for the 49ers and is my WR28 this week. Love that matchup against the Chiefs.

With a banged up secondary and a returning to full strength linebacker corps, the 49ers released LB Terence Garvin and promoted DB Tyvis Powell from the practice squad to the active roster on Saturday. The Niners got LBs Reuben Foster (suspension) and Malcolm Smith (hamstring) back in the fold, making Garvin expendable.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

49ers injury report for Sunday: Out -- G Joshua Garnett (toe) Questionable -- WR Marquise Goodwin (thigh), S Jaquiski Tartt (shoulder). CB Richard Sherman (heel), CB Ahkello Witherspoon (ankle/hip) and OL Mike Person (foot) are not listed with a designation so should be good to go.
