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.

49ers backup QB Nate Sudfeld opens up on mentoring Trey Lance, says he can be a 'really great' NFL quarterback

Even though he didn't see any playing time as a third-string quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers last season, Nate Sudfeld wound up playing a more significant role than many realized when it came to the present and future fortunes of the franchise. The 28-year-old Sudfeld signed with the 49ers last spring after spending the previous four seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, but the odds of him seeing playing time were always long due to the fact he was behind Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance in the quarterback pecking order. But Sudfeld turned out to be a valuable addition to the 49ers' quarterback room because he became an important mentor to Trey Lance. Becoming a friend and mentor to the 49ers' future franchise quarterback isn't necessarily what Sudfeld

In June, new San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward declared that quarterback Trey Lance is "going to show the world this season." Ward has only been in the NFL for four seasons. However, he knows a thing or two about great quarterbacks. He spent those four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs, watching one of the best in the game—Patrick Mahomes. Of course, reporters wanted to ask Ward to compare Lance to Mahomes. The talented cornerback offered a humorous response. "Patrick, both of them going to be great quarterbacks," Ward answered. "They
