49ers’ Trey Lance doesn’t feel finger injury slowed him down, says ‘it’s all good now’

Sep 12, 2021 at 2:48 PM--

Trey Lance was 1-of-1 passing in his NFL debut on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. The San Francisco 49ers rookie's lone pass was a five-yard touchdown to wide receiver Trent Sherfield. The quarterback added three unremarkable carries for two total yards.

"It just felt great to be out there again," Lance told reporters after the game, "and it obviously feels good to be 1-0."

Lance had a setback following the 49ers' preseason finale against the Las Vegas Raiders. He suffered a chipped bone in the index finger of his throwing hand and missed about a week's worth of practice. Lance doesn't believe the injury was too detrimental to his development.

"I only missed a couple of practices," Lance said after the 49ers' 41-33 win. "Obviously, it sucks not to be able to practice but learned a lot and got to watch Jimmy [Garoppolo] and Nate [Sudfeld] operate at a really high level at practice in those few days. Practicing against our defense is [something] I don't like to miss.

"I don't like to miss any days, obviously, but I don't think [the injury] slowed me down at all. But for me, it was just I had to take time and find different ways to get reps. And our video guys do a great job with different ways to watch film, visual reality, and things like that."

The 49ers had indicated that Lance's finger swelled up after the injury. However, the quarterback feels that may have been slightly exaggerated and wasn't too concerned about his status.

"It really didn't swell up too bad," Lance said. "It was just like range-of-motion and just kind of getting that back. And obviously, there was some inflammation in my finger, but it's all good now, thankfully."

John Lynch on the chance of a 49ers reunion with Richard Sherman: "Right now, we feel good about where we are at"

Could there still be a reunion between the San Francisco 49ers and cornerback Richard Sherman this season? The team will never dismiss any possibility, but right now, it seems to be content with its current cornerback situation. Sherman's offseason incident does complicate things. In a conversation with USA Today's Doug Farrar, the five-time Pro Bowler and three-time first-team All-Pro said the situation is ongoing. Sherman was arrested in July and charged with five misdemeanors, including criminal trespass with a domestic violence designation, malicious mischief, a DUI, and resisting arrest. "It's one of those times in life you reach a bit of a crossroads," Sherman told Farrar. "It seemed

49ers RB Trey Sermon on his first NFL start: 'I feel like I did okay'

Rookie running back Trey Sermon gave himself a somewhat positive review for his performance in the 49ers' 30-28 loss to the Green Bay Packers Sunday night, which also served as his first NFL start and first extended regular season action since being selected in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft. The 49ers traded up in the 2021 NFL Draft to select Sermon, who seemed from the outside looking in to be second in the pecking order during the preseason behind starter Raheem Mostert. But the 49ers viewed things differently, which those on the outside discovered when Sermon was surprisingly left inactive as a healthy scratch in the 49ers' 41-33 Week 1 win over the Detroit Lions while Mostert, JaMycal Hasty, and fellow rookie Elijah Mitchell carried the load at running back.

What's the 49ers' plan for Trey Lance? John Lynch says it's under the 'Shanahat'

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;

49ers-Eagles: Kyle Shanahan says Brandon Aiyuk, Trey Sermon had a good week of practice

Earlier today, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan addressed the media speculation that wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk might be in his doghouse. "No. It's not a doghouse," Shanahan said on KNBR before explaining that the second-year receiver's reduced playing time had more to do with him returning from an earlier injury and the emergence of Trent Sherfield. Shanahan fully expects Aiyuk to earn more playing time as the season moves forward. "I want Aiyuk to get that spot back, but Trent Sherfield doesn't make that easy," the coach added. "He has played at a high level. It's not personal. It's just about guys earning spots." After
