Chrissy Mauck, of SF49ers.com, reports San Francisco 49ers TE Billy Bajema is finding the tight end position overpopulated for the 2006 season after a 2005 season where depth at the position was nearly extinct. Bajema was able to see action in 15 games last year and started seven games. The team will have TE Eric Johnson return this year, TE Vernon Davis was drafted in the first-round and the 49ers picked up intriguing prospects in TE Onye Ibekwe and TE Delanie Walker.

49ers QB Trey Lance expected to require surgery, likely ending his season, per report

Trey Lance went down late in the first quarter of the San Francisco 49ers' 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. It was an injury so concerning that the second-year quarterback couldn't make it off the field on his own. He tried to get up, but pressure on his right leg, and immediately went back down to the turf. There was a great deal of concern from his teammates for Lance as he was carted off the field and into the locker room for further tests. The 49ers later announced that Lance was ruled out due to an ankle injury. ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Lance's season may be over. The quarterback is expected to require surgery, likely ending his season. So it will probably be Jimmy Garoppolo's job moving

Social media dug up an old quote from Kyle Shanahan to create a narrative that the San Francisco 49ers head coach contradicted what he said in 2021 when asked to compare Trey Lance to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. "He's not Lamar Jackson," Shanahan said, via ESPN's Ed Werder. "Trey is a quarterback who has the ability to run. But to just line him up and run him, I mean, the game's too physical." Despite injuries at RB, Kyle Shanahan doesn't view rookie QB Trey Lance as solution to create rushing yards. "He's not Lamar Jackson,'' he told me. "Trey is a quarterback who has the ability to run. But to just

All signs point toward Brock Purdy being active on Sunday against the Denver Broncos. It will be the first time he has suited up for a regular-season NFL game after being inactive for Weeks 1 and 2. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk was the emergency quarterback against the Seattle Seahawks after starter Trey Lance went down with a season-ending ankle injury. San Francisco made Purdy the last selection in the 2022 NFL Draft—Mr. Irrelevant. However, the rookie quarterback has been pretty relevant for the 49ers this year. Coaches were pleased with what he showed in training camp and the preseason. So pleased that Purdy beat out Nate Sudfeld. "He steps into that huddle, and it's his huddle," general manager John Lynch said of Purdy after the 53-man roster was assembled.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the Denver Broncos on Sunday at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.

The tight end was a limited participant in practice for the second time this week and could be suited up in Denver this weekend. After practice, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was asked if it felt like old times having Kittle back at practice. "It's getting there," he responded. Defensive lineman Arik Armstead sustained a foot injury against Seattle. He missed his second consecutive practice. Offensive lineman Daniel Brunskill continues to miss
