John Lynch provides Trey Lance injury update, says 49ers in talks with Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Sep 1, 2021 at 2:20 PM--

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with reporters via a conference call today and provided an injury update on Trey Lance. The rookie quarterback suffered a small fracture—described as a chip—in a finger on his throwing hand. Head coach Kyle Shanahan initially said that Lance was expected to miss about seven days, which would put his timeline for a return at next week.

"I think it's trending in the right direction," Lynch told the media. "Some of the swelling is coming down, and Monday is kind of the optimistic look at it. I can promise you this: We'll do right by Trey and have him in a good place before he's back out there.

"But we certainly would love to have him available on Monday. ... I can promise this with Trey as well: He does everything he can to get well, and he's working hard at that right now."

Lance is at practice today with a wrap around his injured hand. However, his participation is very limited.

Lynch also said that the 49ers are in conversations with safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix about the possibility of the veteran joining the team's practice squad.

"Ha Ha came in late but really, I think, showed himself in a great fashion," Lynch said. "I'll tell you, he's a popular player in this locker room. So, we're still in conversations with Ha Ha about joining our practice squad, and we'll see where that goes."

San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance is still waiting. Since he was selected as the number three overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, he has been waiting for his time. Lance played four snaps in Week One in Detroit. Last week in Philadelphia, he did not play any snaps. So what is the plan for Lance to play? How long must he wait? How long must fans wait? If you ask 49ers general manager John Lynch, only head coach Kyle Shanahan knows. "It's an organic thing. I talk to Kyle, but it's all under that Shanahat. It's given the flow of the game, if we use him, how we use him," Lynch told KNBR's Radio's "Murph and Mac" on Friday. "I don't think it's impulsive. He puts so much work in it and is so great at play calling. It's given the style of the defense;

When San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on KNBR this afternoon, he was immediately asked if his team had put out an ad for running backs yet. Shanahan laughed and responded, "We thought about it. It got pretty dire there for a little bit." The 49ers lost several running backs during Sunday's win over the Philadelphia Eagles. Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon, and JaMycal Hasty all left the game with injuries. Mitchell returned, but only after the other two were sidelined. The team was already without Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson. Hasty is expected to land on injured reserve. Mitchell is dealing with a knee injury and has not practiced this week. Sermon is in the concussion protocol and has been limited during practices. The way things

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR this morning and provided an update on the team's running back situation ahead of Sunday's primetime matchup against the Green Bay Packers. Rookie Elijah Mitchell hasn't practiced yet this week after sustaining a shoulder injury against the Philadelphia Eagles, lowering his chances of playing this weekend. "Elijah Mitchell, the rookie who's been really good for us, our sixth-round pick, he got his shoulder [hurt] trying to get it in the goal line on one of those runs," Lynch said on the Murph & Mac show. "He's a tough kid. I can't tell you how tough he is. You see it in his running style and the same in terms of his want to get back on the field. But we've got to make sure he's alright, so I think that

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before today's practice at The Greenbrier in West Virginia. He provided several injury updates as the team prepares for its Week 2 contest against the Philadelphia Eagles. Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw (knee) and cornerback Emmanuel Moseley (knee) will be among the injured players who will not practice today. Both were inactive for Week 1 against the Detroit Lions. Shanahan was asked if Kinlaw's injury is something that might have to be managed throughout the season. "We're not sure. That's why we're trying to take it slow with him," Shanahan answered. "And when we have, it's gotten better. So, you've got to see how that continues to react. I think we'll be easy with him today.
