49ers-Lions Injury Report: Trey Lance limited but throws; Emmanuel Moseley, Javon Kinlaw don’t practice

Sep 8, 2021 at 3:34 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 1 contest against the Detroit Lions on Sunday at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.

The 49ers added another practice squad protection today. Cornerback Dontae Johnson joins quarterback Nate Sudfeld and wide receiver Travis Benjamin. None of the three can be signed by another team until after Sunday's game.

Quarterback Trey Lance's status for this weekend remains unclear. He suffered a chipped bone in the index finger of his throwing hand on August 29. Lance was limited during practice but could throw the football—something he has been unable to do since the injury.

It's progress.


"We'll see how practice goes today," Shanahan responded after being asked about the rookie's availability against the Lions. "We haven't been able to do anything live yet. I mean, he can do it on air, but that will be decided off of Wednesday, Thursday, Friday."


Shanahan said that wide receiver Jalen Hurd was a candidate for injured reserve. The third-year player has yet to play in a regular-season game during his NFL career and is returning from a torn ACL suffered before last season.

Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley's and defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw's statuses are worth keeping an eye on as the week progresses.

Below are Wednesday's practice participation reports for both the 49ers and Lions, which were provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

John Lynch evaluates 49ers rookie Trey Lance's first start, explains Trey Sermon's vanishing act

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



Joe Staley: Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but 49ers are more exciting with Trey Lance

By Marc Adams

Former San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle, Joe Staley, went on KNBR Radio on Monday to discuss the 49ers' loss to the Arizona Cardinals. As expected, the conversation went to the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, including who Staley believed would be under center in two weeks when the 49ers play the Indianapolis Colts. "I think he made his decision before the season even started," Staley said on the Papa & Lund show. "If Jimmy's healthy, he's going to be our quarterback this year. They want to use it as a red-shirt year, almost, for Trey this season. I was encouraged." That seemed to be the plan in the offseason, to have Lance sit and learn. Even after the game on Sunday, Kyle Shanahan continued to hold his ground that
