49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) is not listed on the final injury report and will return for Sunday's game against the Bears. QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start, but Lance could steal a handful of snaps.
49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said after Sunday's win over the Texans that QB Jimmy Garoppolo will start next weekend's regular-season finale if his thumb is back to 100%. But he also admitted that it'll be tough for Garoppolo to get to 100% by next Sunday. So it sure sounds like QB Trey Lance is the favorite to start vs. the Rams. The rookie disappointed with just 31 scoreless rushing yards today but delivered with 249 yards and 2 TDs passing.
49ers QB Trey Lance (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. QB Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) was limited and is expected to be a full-go later this week, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Garoppolo remains in line to start Sunday night's game vs. the Colts.
Niners HC Kyle Shanahan said Monday that QB Trey Lance has a sprained left knee. Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports that Lance said he didn't know when the injury occurred and didn't feel it until he went to bed Sunday night. San Francisco has a Week 6 bye, but Barrows reports he's "questionable" for the Week 7 game against the Colts. With Jimmy Garropolo likely ready to return from his calf injury, we'd bet on the veteran reclaiming his job in Week 7. We'll see as the game draws closer.
49ers QB Trey Lance (finger) was limited in practice all week but isn't listed on the final injury report. We presume he'll be active for Sunday's opener against the Lions, although it's unclear exactly what kind of role he'll have behind starter Jimmy Garoppolo. Lance obviously isn't a Week 1 fantasy option; Garoppolo is only in play in 2-QB leagues.
