In Week 17 last season, Savage was initially cleared to return to a game against the Tennessee Titans, but he was later diagnosed with a concussion and ruled out.

He completed his first pass to wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins and later rushed for 15 yards for a first down. Hopkins caught 11 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns.

Garoppolo passed for 334 yards and produced his first touchdown pass with the 49ers, a 6-yard strike to tight end Garrett Celek with 1:53 remaining in the third quarter. However, at the 2:32 mark of the second quarter, backup T.J. Yates replaced Savage behind center, with Savage seen on the sideline lobbying to return to the field yet again.

Savage was injured when he was driven to the ground on a hit by Elvis Dumervil with about nine minutes left in the second. He would be taken to the injury tent to be evaluated. But a team official kept grabbing Savage's jersey and finally his arm and pulled him away from the field. There was a a heated exchange between them before Savage was escorted to the locker room late in the second quarter. He found him from seven yards out for a score before the half, and he hit him for a 29-yard touchdown just after the break.

Garoppolo, who arrived in Santa Clara on October 31 after a trade with the New England Patriots, has the most yards passing for any 49ers quarterback making his first two starts since the National Football League merger in 1970. Yates also ran for 31 yards on three carries.
