San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback was back in action on Sunday evening as the 49ers faced the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2 of the preseason. Here we’ll take a look at the workload for Lance and how he performed during his reps.
The 49ers struggled much of the first half, with Trey Lance dealing with some accuracy issues. He threw high on a couple attempts and behind on another. His one interception was a catchable pass, but he could have put it in a better spot.
However, all was forgiven by 49ers fans on the final drive of the second quarter. Lance came on the field at the 57 second mark after a Chargers field goal put LA up 10-2. After Wayne Gallman dropped a short pass, Lance found Trent Sherfield for nine yards and Gallman for 12 yards to move the sticks. He then found Sherfield down the right sideline on a well-designed play, and a perfectly-placed pass led to Sherfield picking up 41 yards. After an encroachment penalty, Lance found Mohamed Sanu in a cushion for a touchdown. He ran in the two-point conversion attempt but it came back on a holding penalty.
