49ers’ Trey Lance suffered knee sprain vs. Cardinals; Marcell Harris fractured thumb

Oct 11, 2021 at 3:40 PM--

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters this afternoon and provided some injury updates from this weekend's game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Quarterback Trey Lance suffered a left knee sprain during the game, but the injury is not expected to be a long-term issue. However, it could impact the rookie's availability for the game against the Indianapolis Colts after the bye week. Lance might miss one or two weeks.

"We'll re-evaluate him at the end of the week to determine his status for next week," Shanahan said. "We really won't know whether he's got a chance versus Indy until next week, but he's got a chance. It's possibly one or two weeks. We'll have to wait and see."

Neither Shanahan nor Lance knows when the injury occurred. The quarterback already had an MRI on his knee, which ruled out the possibility of a long-term setback.

"He said he didn't remember doing it any time and didn't feel it until he was in bed last night," Shanahan said. "... He'll have to stay here in the bye week, get treatment and everything, so we should have a good idea by the end of next week whether he's got a chance for Indy or not. But if he doesn't, they told me it should be a one- to two-week thing, but possibly just one."

That leaves practice-squad player Nate Sudfeld as the 49ers' lone healthy quarterback.

Added Shanahan: "I was messing with Trey there, and Jimmy, that now Jimmy's got some company. So, they'll be here, both of them, the whole week so they have the best chance to be ready for Monday when we all get back."

Linebacker Marcell Harris also sustained an injury at some point during Sunday's game.

"Marcell Harris had a right-thumb fracture somewhere in the game; not sure where," Shanahan said. "He's going to have surgery tomorrow. He'll be good to go after the bye week, but we'll have more details after the surgery."

Help after the bye

The good news is that Shanahan and the 49ers hope to get some reinforcements soon.

"When we come back from the bye week, we're hoping to have Jimmy, we're hoping to have K'Waun [Williams], and we think we've got a possible chance at [JaMycal] Hasty," Shanahan said. "[Dre] Greenlaw, outside change. It will probably be another week or two after that. That's about it. ... No updates on [Jalen] Hurd. Jeff Wilson, the same deal. We're hoping for late November on Jeff Wilson."

Shanahan did not have an update on safety Tarvarius Moore (PUP, Achilles).

Why Kyle Shanahan didn't give Trey Lance more playing time during 49ers-Jaguars

During Sunday's victory against the Jaguars, 49ers quarterback Trey Lance got his first live snaps since his first NFL start in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals, although most of them were handoffs. While the game seemed out of reach for much of the fourth quarter, head coach Kyle Shanahan elected not to put his rookie into the game to gain some of that "game-time" experience that Shanahan alluded to last week. Lance trotted out for the first time in over a month during the 49ers last offensive series, in which he handed the ball off twice, rushed once, and kneeled twice to end the game. When asked about whether Shanahan had any thoughts

49ers-Jaguars: Kyle Shanahan 'holding out hope' that Elijah Mitchell could play, discusses Jeff Wilson, Trey Sermon

San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Elijah Mitchell is officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is still hoping that the rookie could play, but the odds are against him. Mitchell suffered a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. The next day, he underwent a procedure to repair the damage. As a result, Mitchell has not practiced at all this week. The coach had hoped the team's leading rusher would get some work in during the three practices, but that never happened. "It's just how he feels with it," Shanahan explained. "And we thought it would be a little further along now. But obviously, it isn't. That's why he couldn't go today. We're holding out hope because
