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.

The San Francisco 49ers expect Brock Purdy to be ready to play between early September and early November. That's a significant range considering the 2023 NFL season begins in early September. Head coach Kyle Shanahan, speaking with reporters at the NFL owners' meetings in Arizona, said the team expects its 23-year-old quarterback's recovery from his March 10 surgery to be six to eight months. The 49ers will know more in June, when Purdy begins throwing again and starts ramping up his workload as part of his rehab. "It might be Week 1," Shanahan said. "I think I'm hearing, at the latest, Week 4. But that's just all estimations, and we'll see what

Would the 49ers trade Trey Lance? John Lynch responds

John Lynch made one thing very clear on Monday morning during the NFL owners' meetings in Arizona. The San Francisco 49ers like their current quarterback room, comprised of Brock Purdy, Trey Lance, and Sam Darnold. Lynch clarified one more thing: If Purdy were completely healthy and ready to play come Week 1, he would be the starter. Of course, there is so much uncertainty surrounding Purdy's health. On March 10, the quarterback underwent surgery to repair the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow he suffered in the NFC Championship Game. His recovery is expected to go into September. Although, Lynch and the 49ers are hopeful the second-year

Jed York on 49ers' decision to draft Trey Lance: "I wouldn't change anything"

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York spoke with reporters on Tuesday at the NFL owners' meetings in Arizona. He was asked about one of his quarterbacks, Trey Lance. In 2021, the team made a blockbuster move, trading significant draft capital to move up to the No. 3 overall pick, where they selected Lance. Two years later, Lance has started only four games and has been surpassed on the depth chart by last year's "Mr. Irrelevant," the No. 262 overall pick, Brock Purdy. Despite the cost of acquiring Lance, York doesn't regret the decision to trade up and still believes in Lance's potential. "I wouldn't change anything that we've made about the decision with Trey," York told reporters.
