Strategist Trey Lance wasn’t the only San Francisco 49ers player injured in the team’s 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan took part in a conference call with reporters this afternoon and provided injury updates, as he usually does the day after a game.

“[Tight end] Tyler Kroft had a sprained MCL,” Shanahan said. “He will be away for a few weeks. [Rookie running back] Ty Davis Price had a sprained ankle. He will also miss a few weeks.”

Shanahan added that they just learned of Davis-Price’s injury. The team will be waiting for their other rookie running back, Jordan Masonto intervene in the absence of Davis-Price.

“He needs [step up] now,” Shanahan said of Mason. “Last week was his first week of having a lot more, him and Ty, and I thought the two had stepped up in that area. I thought JP (Mason) had his best special teams game; does a very good job on special teams.

“ty [suffered the injury] early in the game. He didn’t know it, and neither did we, so we never knew he was injured. He didn’t, so he was able to play most of the game, so JP didn’t come in attack, but he will have to be ready this week now.”

The 49ers also have running back Marlon Mack on the practice squad. The team plans to bring in running backs for practices this week.

As for Lance, he underwent successful surgery to repair two ankle injuries: a fractured fibula and a ligament rupture.

“Lance will begin the rehabilitation process, and team chief medical officer Dr. Tim McAdams is confident he will make a full recovery in time for a full return in the 2023 season,” the 49ers announced via a statement.

Lance is confident he will overcome this setback.

“I’ll be back better than ever,” Lance wrote on social media after the surgery. “This chapter will make the story even bigger!”
