San Francisco 49ers QB Trey Lance out for season with broken ankle that needs surgery

Trey Lance’s season has ended abruptly. Lance broke his ankle during the San Francisco 49ers' 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, coach Kyle

Shanahan announced postgame. The second-year quarterback is scheduled to have surgery on Monday that will sideline him for the rest of the season.  "I'm real

happy about the win, but it's a little sobering once you get into the locker room and see (Trey Lance)," Shanahan said. "I'm hurting for him." From NFL plays to college

sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day. Lance's injury occurred when he was hit low after he took a read-option and ran the football

between the tackles in the first quarter. Lance, 22, was writhing in pain on the grass before he was carted off the field by the 49ers’ medical staff. He did not return.

starting QB this season, subbed in for Lance. The veteran quarterback finished with 154 passing yards, one touchdown pass and one rushing TD.  "I thought (Jimmy

Garoppolo) did a real good job coming off the bench and made some real key throws," Shanahan said. "I'm real proud of Jimmy. How he came in and was ready for the moment and helped

us get a win."
