49ers place Trey Lance on injured reserve, Tevin Coleman returns, other roster moves

Sep 21, 2022 at 12:36 PM--

The San Francisco 49ers have officially placed QB Trey Lance on injured reserve. On Monday, the quarterback underwent successful surgery on his ankle at Stanford Hospital, repairing a fibula fracture and ligament disruption. The injury occurred early during Sunday's 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

"Lance will start the rehab process, and head team physician Dr. Tim McAdams is confident that he will recover completely in time for a full return in the 2023 season," the 49ers said via a statement.

Lance appeared in only five quarters this season, completing 15 of his 31 pass attempts for 194 yards and an interception. He also had 16 carries for 67 rushing yards. San Francisco made Lance the No. 3 overall pick out of North Dakota State in 2021.

"I will be back better than ever," Lance told fans via a social media post. "This chapter is going to make the story even greater!"

Jimmy Garoppolo will serve as the 49ers' starting quarterback for the remainder of the season.

The 49ers announced several other roster moves, most of which were reported on Tuesday.

Promoted to the active roster:

Signed to the practice squad:
  • QB Kurt Benkert
  • RB Tevin Coleman

Released from the practice squad:
  • CB Kary Vincent Jr.

The only one of those moves not previously reported is the addition of Coleman, who had a previous stint with San Francisco.

The 49ers Communications staff provided the following rundown.

Mack originally signed to the team's practice squad on September 14, 2022.

Benkert originally entered the NFL after signing as an undrafted free agent with the Atlanta Falcons on May 1, 2018. Over the past four seasons with the Falcons (2018-2020) and the Green Bay Packers (2021), Benkert has appeared in one game and spent time between the two team's practice squads and active rosters.

A 27-year-old native of Baltimore, MD, Benkert attended the University of Virginia, where he appeared in 24 games for the Cavaliers and completed 534 of 925 passes for 5,759 yards and 46 touchdowns after transferring from East Carolina University.

Coleman (6-1, 210) was originally drafted by the Atlanta Falcons in the third round (72nd overall) of the 2015 NFL Draft. Over the past seven seasons with the Falcons (2015-18), 49ers (2019-20), and New York Jets (2021), he has appeared in 89 games (37 starts) and registered 777 carries for 3,393 yards and 24 touchdowns while adding 128 receptions for 1,273 yards and 12 touchdowns. Coleman has also appeared in eight postseason games (two starts) and recorded 86 carries for 388 yards and three touchdowns as well as 12 receptions for 108 yards and two touchdowns.

Last season, Coleman appeared in 11 games (5 starts) with the Jets, where he finished with 84 rushes for 356 yards to go along with 11 receptions for 49 yards.

A 29-year-old native of Oak Forest, IL, Coleman attended Indiana University, where he appeared in 33 games for the Hoosiers and registered 452 rushes for 3,219 yards and 28 touchdowns.

Vincent Jr. originally signed to the team's practice squad on September 14, 2022.

The San Francisco 49ers won...and lost on Sunday. The win came by beating the Seattle Seahawks, something the 49ers have not done much of over the last 10 years. The loss came when Trey Lance broke his ankle. He's believed to be lost for the season. It's been a rough first two weeks for 49ers fans. First there was the frustrating loss in Chicago, and now the injury to Lance. And to make matters worse, running back Ty Davis-Price sustained a high-ankle sprain that could sideline him for a few weeks. As you well know, Elijah Mitchell will already miss about two months with an MCL sprain. Injuries are beginning to mount. But fortunately for you, I'm fully healthy and ready to share this week's 49ers mailbag with you. Let's get to it. How many QBs

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

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.
