Lance, Warner share heartwarming moment after ankle injury originally appeared on NBC Sports Bayarea
While pundits question Trey Lance's performance after just five quarters of action in the 2022 season, there's one thing they cannot doubt: how much Lance's teammates care about him
Shortly after the 22-year-old suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the first quarter of the 49ers' Week 2 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, All-Pro linebacker Fred Warner shared a few words with the quarterback.
"You're going to be good, brother," Warner told Lance. "We're good baby, we got your back.
"We got your back. It's all love baby."
As Lance was getting carted off, he told Warner to "finish this thing" and that he will be back.
"We're going to hit adversity; it's how we respond to it, you see how, you see what we doing," Warner said. "We always gonna see adversity at some point, whether it be midgame ... it's how you respond."
What's more, coach Kyle Shanahan has said that Lance will be a "part of everything" during his rehab.
While it remains to be seen how this injury will affect Lance in the long run, at least he knows his teammates are in his corner, regardless of what happens.
