Niners general manager John Lynch told the "Murph & Mac" show that he's been impressed with Lance this summer but reiterated that personnel decisions are up to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

"That's up to Kyle (Shanahan). That's up to our head coach," Lynch said Friday, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. "He makes the decisions on who's playing and whatnot. But I think it's Jimmy's right now and Trey's pushing. I think that's where it's at."

  Will Trey Lance play much (or at all) on Sunday night? The much-anticipated two-quarterback system in San Francisco has become four measly snaps in two games for rookie Trey Lance. When the 49ers host the Packers on Sunday night, will we see many or any plays from San Fran’s QB2? On Friday, 49ers G.M.

Lynch added:

"(Lance has) been awesome. He's been everything we thought he would be and more. He was good from day one when he walked in here in the offseason, and I think a testament to what we thought he was and his work ethic."

Lynch previously noted that Garoppolo has been playing his best football this summer at training camp following Lance's arrival. It's quite clear the veteran doesn't want to lose his starting position unless he suffers another injury.

While the 49ers will continue to use Garoppolo as their starter this season, Shanahan admitted last week that Lance will play "situationally" this year.

The North Dakota St. product will make his preseason debut Saturday against the Kansas City Chiefs. If he plays well, he might see more playing time than expected in 2021.

  Kyle Shanahan makes clear that Trey Lance is Jimmy Garoppolo's backup Kyle Shanahan is adept at keeping secrets from the media when he wants to. Jimmy Garoppolo is and will continue to be the team's starter. Trey Lance — the No. 3 pick in April's draft — is a firm No. 2 on the depth chart. Shanahan made the proclamation in the aftermath of Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers. Garoppolo started and played most of the game's offensive snaps. But Lance entered to score San Francisco's first touchdown on a goal-line run after a Garoppolo-led offense failed to reach the end zone in multiple red-zone attempts. © Provided by Yahoo!
