49ers QB Trey Lance suffered a small chip in his finger vs. Raiders, says Shanahan

Aug 30, 2021 at 4:07 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters today via a conference call and provided an injury update on Trey Lance. On Sunday, the rookie quarterback sustained a "small chip" in his finger in the preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders.

"He ended up having a small chip on his finger, so he's going to be out about seven days," Shanahan said.

The coach opted not to reveal which finger suffered the injury.

"It wasn't bothering him much because he just thought it was jammed on that helmet," Shanahan continued. "And then when you get all the images on it — they showed it to me — it's a micro-chip of a bone that's off. He chipped it, which is a small-chip fracture, which is worse than a jam. That's why it's not going to just heal on its own without -- I mean, he can't take snaps and do all that stuff right now, so we've just got to rest it for seven days, they say, and that should be it. [Let] it heal, and hopefully, he'll be good next Monday when we get into practice."

Shanahan added that the 49ers will hold practices on Wednesday and Thursday before taking some time off. Obviously, Lance will sit those out. However, neither of those practices will be focused on game preparation for the team's season opener against the Detroit Lions. That will begin next week.

"I don't really honestly even remember what play it happened on," Lance said after the game. "But I think I jammed it on a helmet or something. But yeah, I'm not worried about it. I'll see how it feels tomorrow, for sure. I think we'll be able to tell a little bit more. But yeah, not too worried about it at all."

Shanahan added that tackle Shon Coleman suffered a triceps sprain and will be out "a while." He has yet to take a regular-season snap since being traded to the 49ers in 2018. Coleman landed on injured reserve in 2019 due to a dislocated ankle and fractured fibula. He opted out of last season due to concerns over COVID-19.

Wide receiver Travis Benjamin suffered a concussion against the Raiders and is in the concussion protocol.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters this afternoon and provided some injury updates from this weekend's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Quarterback Trey Lance suffered a left knee sprain during the game, but the injury is not expected to be a long-term issue. However, it could impact the rookie's availability for the game against the Indianapolis Colts after the bye week. Lance might miss one or two weeks. "We'll re-evaluate him at the end of the week to determine his status for next week," Shanahan said. "We really won't know whether he's got a chance versus Indy until next week, but he's got a chance. It's possibly one or two weeks. We'll have to wait and see." Neither Shanahan nor Lance knows when the injury

Trey Lance started his first NFL game this past weekend, replacing an injured Jimmy Garoppolo. The rookie quarterback's performance had its ups and downs. Despite the defeat and the San Francisco 49ers falling to 2-3 on the season, the outing was an excellent opportunity for Lance to learn and gain valuable experience. General manager John Lynch joined KNBR today. He offered an evaluation of Lance's first start and didn't feel the moment was too big for the 21-year-old. "I think that was the case from the very first play," Lynch said on the Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "You know, welcome to the NFL. J.J. Watt and Chandler Jones blow by our offensive line on the first play, and Trey's got enough athleticism and instinct to pull up and make an

Steve Young says 49ers' Trey Lance is 'awesomely raw'

Hall-of-Fame quarterback Steve Young appeared on KNBR Radio for his weekly show to discuss the San Francisco 49ers. He had plenty to say about 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance, and his starting debut last Sunday in Arizona. "Well, I mean he is awesomely raw," Young told KNBR's 'Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks' on Wednesday. "There is some stuff, but you know it is moving very quickly. Quarterbacking is about coming to a place where no matter how crazy it is, how intense the moment -- it's how quiet your mind is. When your mind is quiet and you own the data, and you own the moment, then your body, that's when the measure of you as an athlete comes out. "It's a wonderful place to get to, but until it does you're always trying to get to manage your brain being

San Francisco 49ers players aren't around their Santa Clara headquarters right now because the team is on its bye week. However, they will return next week to begin preparations for the Indianapolis Colts. The off time is a good opportunity to listen to analysts like Greg Cosell, who joined KNBR today and shared his thoughts on rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first start this past weekend, a 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. What did the respected long-time analyst think of the 21-year-old's starting debut? Lance ran the football 16 times for 89 yards, which was a bit unexpected considering head coach Kyle Shanahan had said that fans could expect the rookie looking more like a quarterback and less like a running back in the game,
