A finger injury affected Trey Lance's rookie season and, according to the 49ers, forced him to throw the ball differently.

The San Francisco 49ers still have Jimmy Garoppolo on their roster, but Trey Lance will take over at quarterback in 2022. For two reasons, we didn’t get a good look at the No. 3 overall pick in 2021: he only played in six games with two starts, and he was also injured.

I kind of dealt with my finger throughout the season, so for me, it was kind of getting that back, and getting healthy, and feeling back to myself,” Lance said, via 49erswebzone.com. “Like, towards the end of the season, I wasn’t the best version of myself overall. It was a long season, a long pre-draft process, of me not being in school. Everyone says it’s going to be, but you don’t really realize it until it happens.

Lance informed reporters this week that he had been battling with a right index finger issue all year, which made throwing the football tough in his rookie season. Last year’s preseason finale versus the Las Vegas Raiders resulted in the injury for the North Dakota State product. It was once thought to be a small problem, a “microchip” of a bone that required rest. However, it turns out that

“And I think the finger, for me, was the biggest thing just as far as throwing the ball. I kind of had to learn to throw the ball differently without kind of using my pointer finger, I guess because of just where it was at throughout the year. But now, I feel like I’m in a great spot, health-wise, and throwing the ball well, and feeling really good.”In 2021, Lance threw for 603 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. He also rushed for 168 yards and another score. Lance won one of his two starts, a Week 17 matchup against the Houston Texans in which he completed 16 of 23 passes for 249 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. It turns out Lance’s finger just needed more time away from holding and throwing footballs, and the QB maintains he’s now healthy and ready to carry the torch for San Francisco.
