San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance was spotted throwing a football for the first time in seven months, but he didn’t throw it to any of his teammates.
Instead, Lance decided to join a throwing session hosted by Patrick Mahomes for his own receivers, as the Chiefs QB invited his group of receivers to Texas for a passing session on TCU’s campus.
When the reigning NFL MVP invites you to a throwing session, you don’t turn him down, which is probably why Chiefs receivers Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Skyy Moore, Justyn Ross, Jerrion Ealy and Ihmir Smith-Marsette decided to show up, according to information from Chiefs Wire.
During the NFL off-season, players are not allowed to work out together at team facilities, so sometimes a passer is seen hosting a workout with his receivers away from the city in which he plays.
With that in mind, the fact that Mahomes set this up wasn’t a total surprise, but it was unexpected when fans saw Lance there.
Trey Lance looks recovered from injury
The San Francisco quarterback missed 15 games last season after fracturing his ankle in Week 2.
During his recovery, Lance suffered a setback that forced him to undergo a second ankle surgery in late December.
Because of those two surgeries, Lance had been out of action for nearly seven months, and in that time he was never seen publicly throwing a football.
Here’s a look at Lance’s first public throw since September 18, when he was on the field for the 49ers in a win over the Seahawks.
