Lance (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Colts, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Lance won't be available this week, but fellow quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has been cleared to return from a calf injury. Both guys figure to contribute to the team this year, but Lance's Week 5 start against the Cardinals didn't exactly bolster his case for more playing time. The ankle injury also doesn't help, though it'll likely heal within the next few weeks. That said, Lance didn't practice at all this week.
Lance (knee) isn't practicing Friday, Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) is on track to return and start, while Lance's continued absence suggests Nate Sudfeld will need to be called up from the practice squad before Sunday's game against the Colts. The rookie QB hasn't practiced since spraining his MCL in the Week 5 loss to Arizona.
Lance (knee) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, David Lombardi of The Athletic reports. Coming off a Week 6 bye, Lance hasn't taken the field in either of the 49ers' first two Week 7 practices. Unless he practices in some capacity Friday, Lance's sprained left knee looks as though it'll keep him sidelined for Sunday's game against the Colts. If that's the case, the 49ers would likely elevate Nate Sudfeld from the practice squad to serve as the backup to Jimmy Garoppolo (calf), who appears set to put an end to his one-game absence this weekend.
Lance (knee) won't participate in practice Wednesday, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports. In fact, Lance isn't expected to be available at all Sunday at Indianapolis, while Jimmy Garoppolo eases his way back into practice as a limited participant Wednesday, according to Nick Wagoner of ESPN.com. With Garoppolo slated to be under center Week 7 and Lance seemingly trending toward an absence, the 49ers are expected to roll with Nate Sudfeld as their backup quarterback.
Lance (knee) was not spotted at the start of Monday's practice, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Lance is dealing with a sprained left knee sustained Week 5, and even coming after a bye it doesn't appear that he's yet ready to resume on-field activities. Meanwhile, Jimmy Garoppolo (calf) is present Monday and could have a better shot at being available to start Week 7. The 49ers won't be compelled to offer official updates on either quarterback until Wednesday's first injury report of the week is released.
