Today, the San Francisco 49ers will hold their second of three practices as part of a three-day rookie minicamp. Twenty-three players are participating, including the team's eight members of its 2021 draft class, the five signed undrafted free agents, a few members of the team with a year of experience, and several players trying out to make the roster.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan wonders why people ask questions to which they already know the answers

By David Bonilla
Sep 9

Hey, Kyle Shanahan, are you ready to officially declare who your Week 1 starter is, even though we already know the answer to that question and have known it for a while? Can you just say it, please, so we can move it from unofficially official to officially official? That is what Shanahan had to deal with since the start of training camp when some wanted to manufacture (in their minds) a quarterback competition between veteran Jimmy Garoppolo and rookie Trey Lance. The question was repeatedly asked, despite Shanahan saying earlier in the offseason that the plan was to have Garoppolo start with Lance sitting and learning. The 49ers coach probably could have saved himself a lot of trouble by just declaring it again. After all, plans can change, especially in the

It's time to get some endorsement deals, right, Trey Lance? The San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback appeared in an online advertisement with a Hall of Fame wide receiver and NFL legend, the one-and-only Jerry Rice. The ad features Lance traveling to meet with the NFL's greatest receiver of all time and Bay Area icon, throwing some passes to Rice, and eating some Chipotle. "Just got to be ready when my name is called," Lance told Rice when asked how he is feeling about everything. Lance is slated to be the backup quarterback to veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. No one really knows how long that will remain the case, though, as the No. 3 overall pick is destined to be Garoppolo's successor. The ad, which you can watch below, focuses on

Trey Lance's progress 'encouraging,' rookie looking good to go for 49ers-Lions, says John Lynch

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR's Murph & Mac show this morning. He provided an update on his rookie quarterback, Trey Lance, who has been recovering from a chipped bone in his finger suffered on August 29 in the preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders. The 49ers are preparing for their Week 1 matchup against the Detroit Lions, and Lance has been limited in the team's last two practices. Lynch was asked if his rookie will be available on Sunday. "It looks like it," Lynch responded. "He's had two good days of practice, provided he goes out there today and doesn't have any setbacks, which, at this point, is just about not hitting his hand on anyone's helmet, the way he [initially injured the finger]. "He's

It looks like Deommodore Lenoir will be counted on by the San Francisco 49ers right out of the gate. The rookie cornerback is warming up with the first-team defense ahead of this morning's regular-season opener against the Detroit Lions. That is a good indication that Lenoir will be the starter opposite Jason Verrett when the defense takes the field. Rookie fifth-round pick CB Deommodore Lenoir is lining up with first-team defense during warmups. #49ers— Eric Branch (@Eric_Branch)
