49ers QB Trey Lance out for season with broken ankle; surgery to come

Trey Lance’s season has ended abruptly.

Lance broke his ankle during the San Francisco 49ers’ 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, coach Kyle Shanahan announced postgame. The second-year quarterback is scheduled to have surgery on Monday that will sideline him for the rest of the season.

“It’s always tough, especially when it’s a big one like that,” Shanahan said. “We were real happy about the win, but it was a little somber once you got in the locker room and you see him.”

Lance’s injury occurred when he was hit low after he took a read-option and ran the football between the tackles in the first quarter. Lance, 22, was writhing in pain on the grass before he was carted off the field by the 49ers’ medical staff. He did not return.

Lance was 2-of-3 passing for 30 yards. He also had three rushes for 13 yards.

Jimmy Garoppolo, whom Lance replaced as the team’s starting QB this season, subbed in for Lance. The veteran quarterback finished with 154 passing yards, one touchdown pass and one rushing TD.

“I thought (Jimmy Garoppolo) did a real good job coming off the bench and made some real key throws,” Shanahan said. “I’m real proud of Jimmy. How he came in and was ready for the moment and helped us get a win.”
