49ers Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo Suffers Season-Ending Injury, His Ex Calls it ‘Karma’
Garoppolo was carted off the field after injuring his knee in a running play against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. You can see his leg buckle in the video below:

Alexandra King’s response to Garoppolo’s devastating injury and the 49ers’ 27-38 loss was ice cold. The same woman who called the 26-year-old NFL star her “Valentine” back in February reportedly posted the word “Karma” and a smiley face emoji to her Instagram Story. Harsh!
NFL insider Ian Rapoport initially tweeted that 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan feared Garoppolo suffered a “season-ending” ACL tear. An MRI on Monday appeared to confirm the injury.
#49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo has, in fact, torn his ACL, the team is announcing. The MRI confirmed what coach Kyle Shanahan feared yesterday. He’s out for the season.

While King clearly has little sympathy Garoppolo, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady certainly does.
“I feel terrible for him,” Brady said during an interview on WEEI’s Kirck and Callahan radio show. “It’s a tough injury. I feel bad for Jimmy, and it’s football. Things happen like that. I’ve been through an ACL. It just sucks.”
Garoppolo helped win two Super Bowls alongside the superstar Patriots signal caller. He was traded to the 49ers in 2017 and signed a record-breaking $137.5 million contract with the team last February.
“You hate to see people go down, and (Jimmy) is someone I really like and have been friends with since the day he got here,” Brady added. “It just sucks to have to go through that.”
It was rumored that King was none to pleased with Garoppolo after his well-publicized date with adult star Kara Mia.
In any event, we hope the injured QB gets well soon. And while her revenge ‘gram wasn’t the nicest thing to say, at least King has a few that are definitely less mean-spirited:
