SANTA CLARA -- Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was ruled out of the 49ers’ game Sunday against the Miami Dolphins in the first quarter with a foot injury.

Garoppolo was taken from the sideline to the Levi's Stadium locker room in a cart, and the 49ers initially listed him as questionable to return to action with an ankle injury before reclassifying it as a foot injury.

Garoppolo was sacked for a 10-yard loss at the end of the 49ers’ first drive of the game. Dolphins defensive linemen Jerome Baker and Jaelan Phillips teamed up to hit Garoppolo, who got up slowly and went to the blue medical tent for further observation.

When the 49ers’ offense returned to the field, rookie Brock Purdy took over as the team’s quarterback. The 49ers did not have a third quarterback in uniform for Sunday’s game.

Purdy filled in admirably on the first drive, leading the 49ers down the field and throwing a go-ahead 3-yard touchdown pass to fullback Kyle Juszczyk.

Juszczyk is the emergency quarterback in case something happens to Purdy on Sunday.

Jacob Eason is the only other quarterback with the 49ers, but he's on the practice squad and not active to play.
