Trey Lance, Justin Herbert, other crucial NFL injuries in Week 3

By Dr. Matt Provencher
FOX Sports Injury & Performance Analyst

Heading into Week 3 of the NFL season, we’re monitoring some key injuries across the league.

We are here to cover team and player health, provide injury analysis and give the fans the hard data behind those injuries. Remember, in the NFL, health matters!

Let’s take a look at what we’ve seen so far.

Trey Lance, QB, 49ers

Lance sustained a significant ankle injury this past weekend. As originally suspected, he suffered a fracture dislocation to his right ankle during a designed QB run when he was tackled by Seattle’s Cody Barton and Bryan Mone.

Lance underwent a successful surgery Monday to repair the fracture and ligament damage, and with Jimmy Garoppolo behind center now, Lance will likely miss the rest of the 2022-2023 season. If the healing occurs as it should, he should be able to return next season with little or no decline in his performance when he makes it back to the field. Meanwhile, he will focus on his rehabilitation and recovery.

Analysis of Trey Lance’s injury

Dr. Matt Provencher gives his prognosis on Trey Lance’s ankle injury: “He’ll likely need plates and screws to stabilize the ankle joint.”

Justin Herbert, QB, Chargers

Herbert took a hard hit during Thursday night’s loss to Kansas City that briefly knocked him out of the game. He returned to lead a late-game touchdown drive but was in obvious pain. This was very evident on a third-down play in which Herbert elected to throw the ball out of bounds instead of running for a first down and risking taking a hit.

It was later confirmed by CT scan that he did have a costal cartilage rib injury (called the costochondral joint). The team has listed him as day-to-day as they watch how he moves and feels with the pain of the injury. Rib cartilage injuries can be very painful, especially during breathing as well as making twisting motions.

The good news is that…
