John Lynch: Trey Lance 'really just asserted himself' this offseason, seizing 49ers' starting job

Trey Lance spent last season as the backup quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, sitting and learning behind veteran Jimmy Garoppolo. However, things are different this year. Lance has taken the reins from Garoppolo as the team's starting quarterback.

"We got into the offseason, and the thought really was this is going to become Trey's team," general manager John Lynch recently told The Athletic. "We go through OTAs and all of that, and he really just asserted himself. Those decisions are Kyle's. We obviously



DeMeco Ryans on why Javon Kinlaw could be key to 49ers defense's success

Last week, San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans identified three things defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw needed to work on in preparation for his third NFL season: technique, technique, technique.

A day after fans learned that Jimmie Ward had been named to the NFL Top 100 Players for the first time, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that the safety is dealing with a significant hamstring injury. The setback has put his availability for the team's Week 1 showdown with the Chicago Bears in doubt. "Yesterday, Jimmie Ward pulled his hamstring," Shanahan said. "A little worse than the other guys so he's going to be [out] some time." Shanahan notes that the 49ers have several options to fill in for Ward, should he miss time.
