Trey Lance: I will be back better than ever

Did San Francisco back into an upgrade in the form of Jimmy Garoppolo after the injury to Trey Lance? Michael Holley and Michael Smith both agree that the 49ers are a stronger contender with Garoppolo under center.

Trey Lance tweeted a photo from his hospital bed. He was smiling and holding up a peace sign.

The 49ers quarterback’s lower right leg was in a cast, though.

Lance will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery Monday at Stanford Hospital to repair a fibula fracture and ligament disruption, the team announced.

Lance quoted Romans 8:18 -- “I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” -- and predicted bigger and better things in his future.

“Truly appreciate all of the messages and prayers,” Lance wrote. “Surgery was a success and I am ready to attack this rehab process. We will never understand why, but I trust that it’s all a part of His plan. I will be back better than ever. This chapter is going to make the story even greater!”
