Sweat is apparently becoming a major issue for the San Francisco 49ers.

According to NBC Sports, center Alex Mack sweating too much is causing exchange issues with starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Mack has started tucking a towel into the back of his uniform to “attempt to curb the sweat that has made the ball too slippery for” Jimmy G to grab.

This is honestly incredibly gross. Mack is sweating so much in his pants that it’s making the ball too wet to handle.

If that doesn’t make your stomach feel a bit uneasy, I don’t know what will.

Imagine having to explain all your fumbles during a press conference and saying with a straight face it’s because a guy’s sweating too much.

It’s one of the grossest non-injury stories I’ve ever read about the NFL.

Best of luck to Jimmy G this season! It sounds like he’s going to need it when it comes to dealing with exchanges with Mack.
