Kyle Shanahan: Trey Lance got a first-team rep on a designed run only for him

Aug 3, 2021 at 2:20 PM--


On Monday, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said, "I haven't planned that at all," when asked if No. 3 overall pick Trey Lance would receive reps with the first-team offense. On Tuesday, Lance took his first snap with the first-team offensive line. This doesn't, however, appear to be a reason to freak out over whether [more]

Why Kyle Shanahan didn't give Trey Lance more playing time during 49ers-Jaguars

During Sunday's victory against the Jaguars, 49ers quarterback Trey Lance got his first live snaps since his first NFL start in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals, although most of them were handoffs. While the game seemed out of reach for much of the fourth quarter, head coach Kyle Shanahan elected not to put his rookie into the game to gain some of that "game-time" experience that Shanahan alluded to last week. Lance trotted out for the first time in over a month during the 49ers last offensive series, in which he handed the ball off twice, rushed once, and kneeled twice to end the game. When asked about whether Shanahan had any thoughts



49ers-Jaguars: Kyle Shanahan 'holding out hope' that Elijah Mitchell could play, discusses Jeff Wilson, Trey Sermon

San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Elijah Mitchell is officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is still hoping that the rookie could play, but the odds are against him. Mitchell suffered a finger fracture during Monday night's win over the Los Angeles Rams. The next day, he underwent a procedure to repair the damage. As a result, Mitchell has not practiced at all this week. The coach had hoped the team's leading rusher would get some work in during the three practices, but that never happened. "It's just how he feels with it," Shanahan explained. "And we thought it would be a little further along now. But obviously, it isn't. That's why he couldn't go today. We're holding out hope because



49ers coach Kyle Shanahan says Trey Sermon is improving but 'there is a pecking order'

Trey Sermon was a third-round pick in April's draft. However, the San Francisco 49ers' sixth-round pick, Elijah Mitchell, is the team's starting running back and leading rusher. Sermon had 10 carries during Sunday's 30-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Before that, his last carry came in Week 5 against the Arizona Cardinals. Sermon moved up the depth chart because Mitchell was inactive due to rib and finger injuries. Kyle Shanahan insists that Sermon is showing improvement. On Monday, one day after the team's Week 11 win, the 49ers coach spoke with reporters and discussed the developing rookie running back. "I think he's better now than when he was given the last opportunity," Shanahan said of Sermon. "I know I get these questions about Trey



'We needed our playmakers to make plays': Fred Warner shares details of 49ers' players-only meeting

The San Francisco 49ers defense knew it had to step up after an embarrassing performance in Week 9 against an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. No one was giving them a chance against a potent Los Angeles Rams offense, but the entire team stepped up, and the 49ers routed their division rival 31-10. Linebacker Fred Warner, defensive lineman Arik Armstead, and safety Jimmie Ward, the 49ers' team captains on defense, met the night before the primetime matchup to discuss what needed to change. Later, they addressed the rest of the defense. "Sunday night before the Monday game, [defensive coordinator] DeMeco [Ryans] had asked for us three captains on the defense, me, Jimmie, and Arik, to just speak to the defense," Warner told NBC Sports Bay Area. "And I asked
