49ers rookie Trey Lance to make first NFL start, says Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers hoped quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be able to take part in today's practice and test whether his right leg was strong enough to play on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. Garoppolo didn't, and he has now missed an entire week's worth of practice. After practice, head coach Kyle Shanahan said the 49ers are ruling Garoppolo "out" for the Week 5 matchup and that rookie Trey Lance would start in the veteran's place. With Garoppolo sidelined, Lance has received the majority of the practice reps this week. "The more reps you get, the better you're going to get," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR. "He does things exceptionally well. I think he's taken to our offense well. With every rep, he's going to get



Jimmie Ward reveals what impresses him about 49ers rookie Trey Lance

San Francisco 49ers safety Jimmie Ward has gone against several rookie quarterbacks over his career, and he's done it from several positions on defense. He knows the difference between going against a rookie and a seasoned veteran. Coaches tend to keep things simple for younger players trying to transition to the pro level. That means a lot of plays are designed to get the football out of their hands quickly. Often, the game plan also involves playing it safe. "I don't know too many [young] quarterbacks that will go for a deep ball on third-and-one and third-and-two," Ward said Wednesday on 95.7 The Game's Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. "Most likely, they're going to play it safe and try to run some kind of quick-game route to get the



Jimmie Ward on 49ers rookie Deommodore Lenoir: 'He's going to be a great player in this league'

Cornerback Deommodore Lenoir may end up being one of the best value picks from the San Francisco 49ers' most recent draft class. He was a fifth-round draft pick, and the Niners tend to find gold in that round. Linebacker Dre Greenlaw was a fifth-round draft pick in 2019. D.J. Reed may not be on the team anymore but is proving to be a good player for the Seattle Seahawks. He was a 49ers fifth-round pick in 2018. In 2017, San Francisco drafted some little-known tight end out of Iowa named George Kittle. He's not bad either. Could Lenoir be the team's next fifth-round gem? The rookie's teammate, safety Jimmie Ward, joined 95.7 The Game on Wednesday. The discussion eventually led to Lenoir and the young defensive back's early dividends. The



Why John Lynch is encouraged by 49ers rookie Trey Lance's progress

All eyes will be on which quarterback is at practice today for the San Francisco 49ers. Will it be the rookie, Trey Lance, who has taken most of the reps this week? Or will Jimmy Garoppolo return to the practice field after suffering a calf injury this past weekend against the Seattle Seahawks? Who is out there today should clear up the mystery of which quarterback will start on Sunday against the division-leading Arizona Cardinals. "I think today is critical," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "If [Garoppolo doesn't practice] today, then we go with Trey." Lance started the second
