The field marshal of the San Francisco 49ers, Trey Lancewill miss the rest of the season in the NFL after breaking his right ankle on Sunday.
Lance went down after running the ball on the second drive of a 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. A car pulled out onto the field and Lance’s leg was put into an air cast before he was taken away. The 49ers immediately announced that he would not return.
Lance’s teammates and several Seahawks players paid him respect before he walked off the field and was replaced by the former starter. Jimmy Garoppolowho threw a touchdown pass on his first complete drive and passed for 154 yards.
the coach of San Francisco, Kyle Shanahan, announced Lance’s forecast immediately after the game.
Lance took over the starting job this season from Garoppolo after being selected third overall in the 2021 draft. San Francisco traded three first-round picks to move up nine spots for Lance, making a big investment in him.
Lance spent his rookie season mostly on the bench watching Garoppolo as the Niners made it all the way to the NFC title game before losing to the Rams.
San Francisco he planned to trade Garoppolo this offseason, but was unable to do so after he underwent shoulder surgery in March.
Garoppolo remained on the roster, but did not practice with the team at all during training camp, pitching on his own in a side field, before agreeing to return as a backup on a reduced contract.
