During Sunday's game between the Houston Texans and the San Francisco 49ers, Texans quarterback Tom Savage was the victim of an enormous hit that many fans watching believe caused a concussion. He went to the locker room with two minutes remaining in the half and was replaced by.

"Disgusted that the @HoustonTexans allowed Tom Savage to return to the game after 2 plays after showing these horrifying #concussion signs (is that a seizure?) after a head impact", Chris Nowinski, co-founder of the Boston University's CTE Center, tweeted.

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.

Savage was hit by 49ers defensive end while throwing an incomplete pass on third down. Houston opened the scoring on Ka'imi Fairbairn's 55-yard field goal.
