On the 49ers podcast with David:
#1 On Monday during practice the San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance had a splint on his right index finger and just some six days before the week 1 opener at Ford Field in Detroit this Sun Sep 12th Lance still can’t practice and throw a football.
#2 Lance did some drop back drills but did not throw a football. Last week he did drop back drills without a football but on Monday he did drop back holding a football but not throwing it.
#3 The 49ers will be starting Jimmy Garoppolo as Garoppolo and Lance are the only quarterbacks on the roster so with Lance’s fractured finger injury the Niners have promoted quarterback Nate Sudfeld from the practice squad roster.
