Passing stats for 49ers QBs Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance through five practices

Aug 3, 2021 at 10:13 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have gone through five practices in training camp. Today's will be the first padded session, so expect things to get a little more physical.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan insists there is no quarterback competition brewing in Santa Clara. Jimmy Garoppolo is still slated to be the starter come Week 1 against the Detroit Lions.

"What I told Jimmy right when we made the trade is, 'I don't know any rookie who can come and beat you out if you're playing at his best self,'" Shanahan told Peter King last week.

The 49ers drafted Trey Lance out of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick. The rookie is the quarterback of the future, but he is still finding his NFL footing and learning the offense. So far, he has looked good in training camp, but Shanahan insists that doesn't change the plan for the upcoming season.

"Jimmy's our starter because he's our best quarterback right now," Shanahan told NFL Network's Steve Mariucci this weekend. "And obviously, we think a lot of Trey, and that's why we invested what we did."

All eyes have been on the performances of Garoppolo and Lance, with most waiting to see if the rookie can somehow show enough flashes to warrant consideration for a competition between the two. For now, it has been Garoppolo working with the first-team offense and Lance working with the twos, as you would expect.

With that in mind, Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group has been keeping copious practice notes and logged the practice statistics for each quarterback. They are below.

Garoppolo: 39-of-62, 3 INT
Lance: 36-of-56, 1 INT

Two of Garoppolo's three interceptions came during Saturday's practice. The other came on Monday. Linebacker Fred Warner was the recipient of one on each day.

Lance's lone interception came on Monday, courtesy of linebacker Jonas Griffith.

The San Francisco 49ers escaped Ford Field with a 41-33 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 1. The offense put up 442 total yards in the effort. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed 17 of his 25 attempts for 314 passing yards and a touchdown in his 2021 regular-season debut. That's a 68.0 completion percentage. The No. 3 overall draft pick, Trey Lance, completed 100 percent of his pass attempts. Of course, he only made one attempt. That attempt went to wide receiver Trent Sherfield for a five-yard touchdown, though. Lance was in the game for four snaps. Garoppolo had 51 snaps. It wasn't the quarterback rotation that most anticipated going into the game. The rookie was expected to see the field more, something the Lions undoubtedly prepared for. That didn't

If the San Francisco 49ers had not drafted Trey Lance with the No. 3 overall pick, the Detroit Lions probably wouldn't be too worried about whoever was backing up Jimmy Garoppolo, assuming Garoppolo remained with the team. Instead, the Lions would be focused on stopping the veteran quarterback and him alone. There wouldn't be many thoughts about Nate Sudfeld or whoever sits behind him on the depth chart. The Niners did draft Lance, though. Then head coach Kyle Shanahan showed off an unorthodox game plan in the team's preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders, swapping between Garoppolo and Lance in the middle of drives. Maybe it was just to give Detroit Lions head coach Dan Campbell something to think about as he prepared for his Week 1 matchup against the 49ers. If that

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 1 contest against the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan. Trey Lance continues to look good throwing footballs during the portions of practice that are open to the media. The rookie quarterback is recovering from a chipped bone in his finger, an injury suffered on August 29 against the Las Vegas Raiders. For now, things appear to be trending in the direction of Lance being available on Sunday. He was limited today. No brace, no splinter, no problem it appears for QB Trey Lance ahead of Week 1.



49ers remain cautious about QB Trey Lance's Sunday status as he rebounds from injured finger

Trey Lance's finger appears to be healing fast enough for him to be ready to play against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, but the 49ers are still taking things one day at a time as they continue to assess his status. Lance has been working his way back to full practice participation after injuring his finger when his hand hit the helmet of a defensive player during the 49ers' preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders on August 29. He was seen throwing at practice Thursday without any visible problems after shedding the splint he was wearing days earlier, but the 49ers still listed him as limited during their Thursday injury
