It sounds like 49ers QB Trey Lance has started throwing

Feb 24, 2023 at 6:03 PM--

Trey Lance suffered a season-ending ankle injury in September and underwent two surgeries. He expects to be full-go in time for organized team activities (OTAs) in May. However, that doesn't mean the third-year quarterback is waiting to start getting into football shape.

It sounds like Lance has started throwing again in the Bay Area. The quarterback took to social media to ask for "a few college receivers" for (presumably) a Bay Area throwing session, starting on Friday (h/t Grant Cohn of SI)

Lance planned to begin "fully throwing back on the field" by the end of February.

"Like truly taking drops, throwing," Lance said during the week leading to the Super Bowl. "But it's going to be a process. Ups and downs, and it has been, obviously, with the second procedure and everything like that. But I feel like I'm in a really great spot, and OTAs, I should be fully cleared."

Lance is the healthiest of the two 49ers quarterbacks currently under contract. Brock Purdy, who ended the 2022 season as the team's starter, sustained an ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) tear in his right elbow during the NFC Championship Game. He is expected to miss the entire offseason after undergoing surgery to repair the damage. The procedure was initially scheduled for this week but got postponed due to inflammation in the quarterback's arm.

San Francisco's two other quarterbacks, Jimmy Garoppolo and Josh Johnson, are slated to hit free agency.

49ers expect Brock Purdy to begin throwing this week

The San Francisco 49ers expect their second-year quarterback, Brock Purdy, to start throwing again this week. Purdy underwent surgery on March 10 to repair the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow, an injury sustained on January 29 in the NFC Championship Game. The expectations were always for the quarterback to start throwing again in early June. Purdy won't be doing anything excessive at first. He will likely be limited as this portion of his rehabilitation begins, and his workload will ramp up in the coming months. Purdy's return timeline remains up in the air. However, the team will know more once he starts throwing again. Head

Brock Purdy started throwing this week, and it sounds like the San Francisco 49ers are pleased with their second-year quarterback's progress. While Purdy isn't doing anything overly taxing, it is the first time he is throwing a football—albeit reportedly a lighter-weighted one. Purdy underwent surgery on March 10 to repair the tear of the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow, an injury suffered against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. His recovery is expected to last into late August or early September—barring any setbacks. "There are certain markers that you hit," general manager John Lynch said Wednesday morning on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "He was 12 weeks out, and that meant it was time to throw. He did so and

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy started throwing again last week, his first significant throwing session (with a football, at least) since the NFC Championship Game in January when he tore the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) in his right elbow. Purdy underwent surgery on March 10 to repair the damage and isn't expected to be cleared to hit the practice field for several months. The 49ers liked what they saw from his limited work last week. "He's just had one session thus far, but we're incredibly encouraged by that," general manager John Lynch said last week during an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio. "And Brock's a worker. If you give him a
