Goodwin shines after personal tragedy

After catching his first pass as a member of the 49ers, Marquise Goodwin shared that he and his wife Morgan’s infant son had passed away.

“Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am,” Goodwin posted on Instagram. “Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan. The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable.”

After Goodwin scored, he stayed on the ground in an emotional moment.

Later in the game, Goodwin sprung tight end Garrett Celek for a touchdown with a huge block on a pursuing member of the Giants defense.
