Trey Lance: I will be back better than ever

Trey Lance tweeted a photo from his hospital bed. He was smiling and holding up a peace sign.

The 49ers quarterback’s lower right leg was in a cast, though.

Lance will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery Monday at Stanford Hospital to repair a fibula fracture and ligament disruption, the team announced.

Lance quoted Romans 8:18 — “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” — and predicted bigger and better things in his future.

“Truly appreciate all of the messages and prayers,” Lance wrote. “Surgery was a success and I am ready to attack this rehab process. We will never understand why, but I trust that it’s all a part of His plan. I will be back better than ever. This chapter is going to make the story even greater!”

  1. Hope the young man makes a full recovery.. Being back better than ever is not really saying much tho as he has been pretty sub par so far…

  2. Better than what so far ?? The 49 ers looked much more comfortable with Jimmy under center, Or was it just me ??

  3. For those that have already decided that Trey Lance will never be a great QB….you might be right.

    But consider what people were saying about Josh Allen after his first season as a starter. He had a record of 5-6 and had more interceptions than touchdowns. Now keep in mind that Lance has only started 3 games.

    I remember that people on these boards were saying that Allen was terrible and the Bills made a huge mistake drefting him.

  4. Stinks for him but very likely they’ll have mentally moved on from him before he makes it back. If he looks fantastic they’d still give him the job, sure, but anything less than that and they’ll be quite ready to put somebody else in there.

  5. Jimmy has complete control over his future now.

    If he does well this season and they make a deep playoff run again, he’ll get a 3 year deal to stay with the 49ers.

    If the team goes 8-9 or something, Jimmy will have to move on to a new team, and SF will bring in a veteran like Andy Dalton or something to battle Trey Lance in camp for the job.

  6. On the bright side, he only needs to win one more game during his entire NFL career to double his current win total.

  7. During the post-game presser Kyle Shanahan looked relieved and borderline giddy he won’t have to answer Trey Lance questions for the rest of the season.

  8. BUST Huge draft day mistake. Rumor was they had originally moved up for MAC but someone became HIGH on Lance.

  9. It’s not his fault Lynch/Shanahan traded up to pick him. I said he was going to bust like Zach Wilson and Justin Fields.

    Fields does a lot of bootlegging and can’t go through progressions and he’s in his second year.

    He’s busting.
