Marquise Goodwin Explains Decision To Play After Infant Son's Death

Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin right is comforted by 49ers teammate Eric Reid during Sunday’s national anthem

The 49ers coach was ready to let his speedy receiver take time with his wife after she prematurely gave birth Sunday to their son, whom Goodwin said died of complications. At all. I really didn't even practice that week, I was just going through a lot.

"We do have a lot of people that are following us through our journey", he said.

"Shows more of her character than mine", Goodwin said, according to Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group.

"To be able to score a touchdown and ultimately help my team get a win was just a great moment in my life and a moment I'll remember forever because I could've easily not been at the game and that never would've happened and nobody would've ever known about this story and we wouldn't be able to help ourselves and help others people along the way", Goodwin said.

Goodwin later announced his family's loss on social media. "I said, 'Baby, just go out there and do your thing, '" she recalled.

Goodwin had a huge impact on the 49ers' first victory over the season, a 31-21 win over the Giants at Levi's Stadium.

San Francisco 49ers' Marquise Goodwin (11) makes a catch which he would run in for a touchdown against New York Giants' Janoris Jenkins (20) in the second quarter of their National Football League game n Santa Clara, Calif. on Sunday, Nov. 12, 2017.

The San Francisco 49ers player honored his wife on Tuesday with a sweet Instagram post, just two days after the couple sat emotionally in a hospital and kissed their baby boy goodbye.

"(She) encouraged me", he said, "raised my spirits.

"The only reason I made it through the game is because of my faith in God", he said". "That's what's so cool about the situation is my wife, how supportive and encouraging she is". "Seeing him score the touchdown and watching him get emotional after the game".

The 49ers wide receiver hadn't practiced during the week, had hardly slept, had missed team meetings. "'I'll be okay.'" And he stunned both of them - and 49ers fans, most of whom knew nothing about the pregnancy or miscarriage - with his 83-yard touchdown. Goodwin also had an 18-yard run and delivered the block that sprang tight end Garrett Celek on his 47-yard touchdown. "I feel I was placed in this world to be a mother, and I want to be a mother".

Quarterback C.J. Beathard did not learn until after the game about Goodwin's personal tragedy. He alluded to his belief when asked if he had message for others who are in the midst of similar situations.

After the game, Goodwin quickly exited the locker room to be by his family's side. "The reward will last longer than the pain".
