Trey Lance‘s season is finished after only two games. He played 16 snaps Sunday, fracturing his right ankle on a running play.
The 49ers quarterback underwent surgery Monday morning, the team announced.
“Surgery was performed at Stanford Hospital and repaired two injuries to Lance’s ankle, a fibula fracture and ligament disruption,” the 49ers said in a statement. “Lance will start the rehab process, and head team physician Dr. Tim McAdams is confident that he will recover completely in time for a full return in the 2023 season.”
Lance finishes his first season as a starter with a 1-1 record, a 48.4 completion percentage, 194 yards, no touchdowns, an interception and a 55.0 passer rating. He also ran for 67 yards on 16 carries.
Jimmy Garoppolo regains the starting job after returning to the team on a restructured contract before the start of the season.
