Trey Lance anxious to see how 49ers respond to second ‘sloppy’ practice

Jul 29, 2022 at 3:10 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers offense hopes to clean things up after two consecutive underwhelming practices. The team kicked off training camp this week, holding three practices so far. You could interpret the last two sessions as good outings for the defense, but with all eyes on second-year quarterback Trey Lance, the narrative will constantly shift towards the offense.

Lance doesn't seem too concerned, though, even after his second straight day that included throwing an interception. He was 3-of-10 during Friday's team drills.

"There's always going to be ups and downs," Lance told Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports HQ after Friday's practice. "I'm kind of more worried, at this point, about how we respond. I thought it was a little bit sloppy today, for sure, on my end, but we're going to keep getting better. It's only Day 3, so we've got a lot of work to do."

Part of the problem might be some inconsistencies along the offensive line. The team's best offensive lineman, left tackle Trent Williams, has been away this week due to the birth of his child. He is back with the team. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey, who has been rehabbing from a significant injury throughout the offseason, will start participating in team drills on Saturday.

Between the two anchors is where the big transition is taking place. Center Alex Mack retired, and guard Laken Tomlinson left in free agency.

"It's been awesome," Lance said of his offensive line's work early in training camp. "Jake Brendel's done a great job at center. Dan Brunskill as well. We've got two or three rookies that have done a really good job, getting a lot of reps with the ones. A couple of guys in my class, Aaron Banks and Jaylon Moore, I can go up and down the line.

"But those guys have done a great job. It's hard without pads on these first few days, but I'm super excited to keep going and keep growing with these guys."

Kyle Shanahan, 49ers players give reactions to Trey Lance's injury

There were undoubtedly mixed emotions coming from the 49ers locker room after their 27-7 win over the Seahawks on Sunday. The 49ers played well in their one-sided win over the Seahawks, giving them the boost they needed after a highly disappointing loss to the Chicago Bears in Week 1. But the win came at a cost, as the team lost quarterback Trey Lance to what appears to be a season-ending ankle injury. Lance was on the minds of a number of 49ers after the game, as well as head coach Kyle Shanahan. His injury was tough to swallow considering where he is in his career and how much he prepared coming into his first season as the team's starter. Here's a roundup of what Shanahan and a number of other players said when asked about Lance's



Orlovsky says 49ers not a championship-caliber team with Jimmy Garoppolo, expresses concern for Trey Lance

The San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl odds saw a slight boost thanks to a Week 2 win and the switch at quarterback. Jimmy Garoppolo replaces starter Trey Lance, who suffered a broken ankle in the Niners' 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks and will undergo season-ending surgery today. Keeping Garoppolo on a restructured one-year deal now seems like the 49ers' best offseason move. Once seen as an unnecessary luxury, holding onto the veteran quarterback keeps the team competitive this season. One ESPN analyst, Dan Orlovsky, doesn't agree with oddsmakers, though. He doesn't believe the 49ers are better equipped to make a championship run with Garoppolo at the

The San Francisco 49ers announced that quarterback Trey Lance underwent successful surgery on Monday.

The team also provided more details on the injury itself. "Surgery was performed at Stanford Hospital and repaired two injuries to Lance's ankle, a fibula fracture, and ligament disruption," the 49ers announced. "Lance will start the rehab process, and head team physician



49ers' Kyle Shanahan clarifies his Lamar Jackson comments, explains plan for Trey Lance

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. But to just
