Marquise Goodwin Says 'Never Stop Believing' After Death of Infant Son

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Only hours after his baby boy's death, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin arrived at the team hotel to check in before Sunday's game against the New York Giants. Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4am. "I want a lot of children, so this hurts".

"We cried. It was a hard thing to take in", Morgan Goodwin - Marquise's wife - told People in an emotional interview. I think it speaks more about her character than mine because here she is, she could be holding me back, she could make me feel guilty about having to go and play football, which is just a game in the grand scheme of things and what we dealt with was a real-life situation, a death. "Please Pray for the Goodwin family.????" "I asked her if she would like me to stay with her and she insisted that I go play in the game because she felt like my team needed me".

In fact, in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Giants, Goodwin prayed on the field over injured NY defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul. He threw a key block to spring tight end Garrett Celek for a 47-yard touchdown and caught an 83-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

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

Goodwin added he and his wife have been touched by the outpouring of support ever since he made the news public in an Instagram post on Sunday. However, God had other plans for us.

The 49ers are depending on mostly inexperienced and unproven receivers to round out the group with Garçon out and rookie Trent Taylor recovering from a cracked rib. Undrafted free agent Kendrick Bourne played almost half the snaps against NY and caught five passes for 81 yards over the past two games - and a few converted third downs. "And I know my wife and I will be better after this situation". "I mentally and physically was not prepared to play in that game at all I wasn't in it.

He showed a lot to us, the tough guy that he is", Beathard said Monday on The 49ers Insider Podcast with NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco. Goodwin's 500 yards receiving is already a career high and there are six games remaining after the coming bye week.

Goodwin, who turns 27 on Sunday, offered advice on his call to others facing personal tragedies: "Never stop believing". "The reward will last longer than the pain".

"I just wanna thank those who've genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself throughout this pregnancy".
