49ers’ Kyle Shanahan: QB Trey Lance won’t return this season

Sep 21, 2022 at 1:10 PM--


There has been some chatter that Trey Lance might return this season after foot and ankle surgeon Dr. Kenneth Jung told the San Francisco Chronicle that the quarterback could fully recover within 10 to 12 weeks.

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. That's what years mean to me."

The coach was asked how Lance was doing after Monday's surgery to repair the damage from his broken ankle.

"He's doing as good as you can," Shanahan shared. "Trey's great. A number of guys have all talked to him a bunch. He's trying to come to the game this week. I don't think he'll be able to until the swelling goes down and stuff like that, but he'll be back as part of us sooner than later."

Lynch reaffirmed that this morning on KNBR while adding that the team has been impressed with the quarterback's recovery. Unfortunately, it's just a bit much to expect Lance to return to the field this season. "He'll be fine long-term, but that's a big ask to get back this year," Lynch said. That didn't stop a reporter from asking Shanahan about the possibility ahead of today's practice. Could Lance return to serve as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup if the 49ers embarked on a deep playoff

49ers Notebook: Why not practice in Mexico City? Is Kyle Shanahan still tough on WRs? Adjusting to the altitude

On Saturday, the San Francisco 49ers finished up their last of three practices this week. They'll depart Colorado Springs, where they have spent the week to get acclimated to the altitude, for Mexico City on Sunday afternoon. The 49ers and Arizona Cardinals play on Monday night at Estadio Azteca, where the elevation is about 7,200 feet above sea level. The team had to practice indoors on artificial turf the last two days due to some snowfall this week. "It's not ideal, but it's not the end of the world," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after Saturday's practice. "We made it through it, and I'm happy we did it now. ... Everyone would rather be on nice, soft grass, but most of the places I've been at this time of year, there isn't soft grass. We're fortunate to have
