49ers QB Trey Lance could miss time with knee sprain

Per Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan remains committed to starting veteran quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo over rookie and third overall draft pick Trey Lance once Garoppolo has recovered from the calf contusion that kept him out of Sunday's 17-10 loss to the unbeaten Arizona Cardinals that dropped the Niners to 2-3 on the season.

Shanahan may have no other choice than to go to Jimmy G following the bye week.

The coach told reporters Monday that Lance has a knee sprain and could miss the Week 7 showdown with the Indianapolis Colts on Oct. 24. Lance made his first professional start against Arizona filling in for the injured Garoppolo and completed 15-of-29 passes for 192 yards with no touchdowns, one interception, and a team-high 89 rushing yards.

"We'll re-evaluate him at the end of the week to determine his status for next week," Shanahan said of Lance, according to David Bonilla of 49ers WebZone. "We really won't know whether he's got a chance versus Indy until next week, but he's got a chance. It's possibly one or two weeks. We'll have to wait and see."

1. I just looked at the 49ers' depth chart on a couple of sites

No one is in place as a third-string QB. Looks like San Fran will have to sign a free agent. Colin Kaepernick is a loooong shot, but Cam Newton and RGIII are available.
