Kansas City Chiefs NFL San Francisco 49ers

Patrick Mahomes Injured; San Francisco 49ers George Kittle Has Strong Words About Trey Lance!

Written by Chris Powers

The San Francisco 49ers got a strong injection of energy when they decided to draft Trey Lance in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft. For the most part, the reception of Lance has been great from teammates and fans alike. Lance is poised to bet he starting quarterback for the 2021 season, putting last years starter Jimmy Garoppolo in the back seat.

Veteran 49ers Tight End had some strong words about Lance and his contributions to the team after this past Monday’s OTA’s. See what he had to say below:

“I was really excited yesterday, he made an awesome throw on a play action,” Kittle said of Lance on Tuesday. “He found my rookie Josh Pederson on a far corner on a roll-out which is the last guy you would throw it to on the play. The fact that he found him on his first ever roll-out is pretty cool.  He looks better out there than a rookie quarterback,” Kittle said. “When he’s out there, he’s slinging it. Just seeing him out there, trying to figure it out,” Kittle said. “I like watching guys compete and if you can pick up this offense as a rookie and be able to analyze it and throw it to the right guy, and at the same time overcome coaching to make a play, it’s impressive. So I just can’t wait to see what these next OTA days give Trey and continue to allow him to move forward.

See what else Kittle had to say in this video of the The Rich Eisen Show:

In other NFL news, Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes underwent surgery a few months back to repair his severe case of “turf toe.” The question is, will Mahomes still be on the injured reserve at the start of the season, or will he be available to play in Week 1? Chiefs head coach Andy Reid commented on Mahomes and his recovery process.

“He’s been doing everything,” Reid said, via Matt McMullen of the team’s website. “We utilize this as more of a passing camp, and his toe has done really well.”
