49ers QB Trey Lance’s arm fatigue “not a concern at all,” according to Kyle Shanahan

Over this offseason, several reports have floated around that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance experienced arm fatigue during portions of last season, as well as this offseason, which has left fans concerned about the quarterback's durability.

CBS Sports's Ryan Harris first originated the topic, speaking about Lance's arm fitness, before The Volume's Colin Cowherd and Mike Silver reiterated the idea, stating they've heard concerns from several sources about Lance's arm fatigue, going as far as saying that the quarterback needed several days off after throwing.



However, on Monday, during an appearance on The TK Show, head coach Kyle Shanahan disputed the claims, answering that Lance's arm fatigue hasn't been a concern at all.

"No, it's not a concern at all. Trey had some injuries last year when he broke his finger and stuff that he had to adjust some things to fight through and get through which made him have some weeks where he did have a sore arm and things like that. But, I haven't had a quarterback I've ever gone through in my career where there wasn't one time in that year where their arm wasn't bothering them. So, there's no like difference in other guys or arm fatigue or anything like that. He had a great OTAs. He's in as good of a place right now as I've been around and I just can't wait for him to start practice here in a couple days."

Earlier this offseason, Lance himself admitted that his broken finger hampered him throughout the entire season, and that he only felt 100% this offseason when he began training.

However, Lance was the top quarterback throughout the entire OTAs and minicamp period, and was on video practicing normally and making many throws during those open practices.

In fact, Lance completed 74% of his passes during the four open practice sessions in OTAs, and Shanahan can't wait for him to get his necessary reps in training camp.

This year's training camp could be a clear indicator on the topic, as the 49ers practice four days in a row (7/27-7/30), as well as two three-day spurts, at which point Lance's arm will be on display.

One of the biggest debates since the San Francisco 49ers' Week 2 win over the Seattle Seahawks has been head coach Kyle Shanahan's use of Trey Lance. Many feel that the excessive use of quarterback runs unnecessarily put the second-year player in harm's way. Lance ended up suffering a season-ending ankle injury in the first quarter. During an interview on 95.7 The Game, fullback Kyle Juszczyk defended his head coach. He doesn't understand the criticism directed in Shanahan's direction, and the growing lack of trust from a very vocal segment of the fanbase. "I think he deserves that trust, and he's built that reputation to have that trust," Juszczyk told Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto. "He's had so much success in the decisions that he has made here that I think he's

Social media dug up an old quote from Kyle Shanahan to create a narrative that the San Francisco 49ers head coach contradicted what he said in 2021 when asked to compare Trey Lance to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. "He's not Lamar Jackson," Shanahan said, via ESPN's Ed Werder. "Trey is a quarterback who has the ability to run. But to just line him up and run him, I mean, the game's too physical." Despite injuries at RB, Kyle Shanahan doesn't view rookie QB Trey Lance as solution to create rushing yards. "He's not Lamar Jackson,'' he told me. "Trey is a quarterback who has the ability to run.

Kyle Shanahan shut that speculation down on Wednesday. The head coach was asked if Lance might return sooner than the 49ers initially anticipated, as indicated by the article from the San Francisco Chronicle. "No. He'll be out until next year," Shanahan responded. A reporter asked if he meant next season, as "next year" could mean the playoffs. "Next season," Shanahan added. "Thank you.
