Surgery was not needed to repair the injury. Lance added that he is “in excellent health condition” when participating in the OTA.
Trey Lance is expected to join the 49ers in 2022.
Lance has spent most of his rookie season sitting at Garoppolo, but that won’t be the case in 2022. Garoppolo is expected to be traded, paving the way for Lance to become the undisputed starter for the 49ers.
In March, Garoppolo underwent surgery on his shoulder, which delayed the move. Despite this operation, Shanahan still expects Garoppolo to be sold before the start of the season.
It’s unclear if Lance will be assisting All-Pro wide receiver Deebo Samuel in 2022. Samuel reportedly requested a trade during the off-season. The 49ers don’t want to meet Samuel’s demands.
If, for whatever reason, Samuel does not return to the team, Lance will still be able to rely on tight end George Kittle as his primary weapon. Trey Lance with the 49ers.
