Lance (finger) doesn't have a designation for Sunday's game at Detroit. David Lombardi of The Athletic reports.
Just two weeks removed from jamming his right hand and suffering a chip fracture in one of his fingers in the process in preseason Week 3, Lance will be available to the 49ers offense Sunday. But it remains to be seen in what capacity. Since then, the team has named veteran Jimmy Garoppolo the starting quarterback, which is no surprise considering his grasp of coach Kyle Shanahan's scheme. Exhibition season revealed that both Garoppolo and Lance can coexist in the offense, though, meaning the third overall pick of the 2021 draft may see his initial NFL action this weekend.
