49ers Marquise Goodwin loses son hours before Sunday's game

Just hours before the game, Goodwin and his wife Morgan lost their infant son due to complications after he had to be delivered prematurely.

In an Instagram post, Goodwin said that he and his wife had lost their prematurely born child that very morning. "The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelieveable".

While 49ers players celebrated their first victory of the season, Goodwin left early to be with family, according to local media.

Goodwin posted the news online shortly after the game in which he scored a go-ahead 83-yard touchdown.

As you can see in the video below on the touchdown play, Goodwin caught the deep pass from Beathard and avoided the tackle of Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins, blowing a kiss to the sky before crossing the goal line.

There was every reason 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin should have been rejoicing in the San Francisco lockerroom after Sunday's win.

The sporting world witnessed the San Francisco 49ers winning their first game of the season on Sunday.

I appreciate everyone who kept us in their prayers and constantly checked in on us.

Goodwin is one of the fastest players in the National Football League, a great sprinter and member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team; he was one of three men's long jumpers representing the country.

Thanking those who had reached out to the family, Goodwin-Snow said her pregnancy had been "an fantastic experience and it was also a tragic experience".
