San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Trey Lance Sends Clear Message Following Season-Ending Injury

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance

Trey Lance will not take another snap in the National Football League this season. The San Francisco 49ers suffered a season-ending ankle injury in Week 2 on Sunday. A devastating result for the youngster out of North Dakota State. 

Jimmy Garoppolo, in the meantime, will now once again run the show in San Francisco. However, Lance is committed to coming back better than ever.

This Monday afternoon, Lance posted a post-surgery update on Twitter. He is confidence he will be "back better than ever" next season. 

"Truly appreciate all of the messages and prayers," said Lance. "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!"

Trey Lance's journey has no shortage of road blocks. He hasn't played much football at all these past few years. Hopefully he can survive the 2023 season. 

Garoppolo, meanwhile, was more than prepared to take over for Lance in Week 2. He led the 49ers to a 27-7 victory against the Seattle Seahawks. 

The Niners take on the Denver Broncos this Sunday.
