“Trey is moving extremely well”: John Lynch, 49ers encouraged by Lance’s progress

Nov 23, 2022 at 10:29 AM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance is two months removed from his surgery to repair the fibula fracture and ligament disruption in his right ankle, a season-ending injury sustained during Week 2.

Lance was on the sidelines with his teammates at Estadio Azteca in Mexico City, watching his 49ers defeat the Arizona Cardinals 38-10. The quarterback is expected to be ready for the 2023 season.


General manager John Lynch joined KNBR on Wednesday morning and provided an update on the second-year quarterback.

"It is true; he is out of his walking boot," Lynch told Markus Boucher and Marcus Thompson. "And sometimes you'll see guys with that particular injury, it's just a tough one, right away, the mobility, or lack thereof, after you've been in a boot, but Trey is moving really well."

Lance is currently on injured reserve. If the 49ers eventually activate defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw from injured reserve, that will be the seventh of the team's eight allowed activations this season. While head coach Kyle Shanahan previously shot down the idea of a return this season for Lance, fans seeing the injured quarterback walking around well can't help but speculate about an early return.

Could Lance be healthy enough to be activated during the playoffs, assuming the 49ers continue to win football games?

"I don't see that as a possibility," Lynch responded. "He did a number on his ankle. He'll be fine long-term, but that's a big ask to get back this year. We're just really encouraged by the way it's responding and by the way Trey has been working to try to make it as good as possible.

"Trey's doing a great job, going to every meeting, supporting his teammates. He's well-liked. He and [QB] Jimmy [Garoppolo] have a tremendous relationship. Jimmy, when he was the backup, did everything he could to make things as good as possible for Trey, and Trey is doing the same thing in turn.

"Those guys are doing great, Trey is moving extremely well, and we're encouraged by his rehab and the way it's going."

There was no shortage of topics to talk about from a 49ers perspective after Sunday's 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins, and we're going to dive right into them in this edition of 49ers Notebook. While much of Sunday's postgame discussion dealt with the season-ending foot injury to quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the performance of Garoppolo's replacement, Brock Purdy, there were a number of other interesting and entertaining moments we're going to get into here, including some pointed (but friendly) words defensive end Nick Bosa had for head coach Kyle Shanahan and a bit of smack talk from wide receiver Deebo Samuel to former 49ers running back Raheem Mostert.

Quarterback Brock Purdy is preparing for his first NFL start. The rookie entered Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins on the San Francisco 49ers' second offensive drive, after Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a broken foot. The Niners went on to win 33-17. Garoppolo's recovery is expected to take about seven to eight weeks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan admitted on Wednesday that he isn't optimistic about the veteran quarterback's chances of returning deep in the playoffs but isn't closing the door on the possibility. For now, Shanahan and Co. are focused on this weekend's opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and adapting things for the young inexperienced

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday.

How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.
