Fantasy Impact: 

As the story puts it, that wasn’t quite the progress the 49ers were hoping to see. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said last week they hoped he could return to full practice Monday after he suffered a small chip of a bone in his finger during the preseason finale against the Raiders on Aug. 29. Lance participated during individual drills Monday by practicing his dropback and footwork but not making throws. He did grip a football, which he did not do last week, during a drill near the start of practice, the story went on to say. Garoppolo, at this point, looks like he's a safer play. Lance was expected to at least play a handful of plays, according to the story, but if he can't get back to practice that wouldn't be a lock. Sudfeld is the team's third QB.
