San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance is turning to God following a season-ending right ankle break that required surgery and rehab.
Lance, who sustained the injury Sunday during a game against the Seattle Seahawks, took to social media Tuesday to share his faith and an update for fans.
The NFL star posted an image of him lying in a hospital bed smiling and making a peace sign. His right foot and leg cast can be seen in the photo as well.
Lance opened the post with text from Romans 8:18. The verse reads, "I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us" (NIV).
The quarterback, who appears to be in good spirits, all things considered, thanked fans and loved ones for prayers and positive messages.
"Truly appreciate all of the messages and prayers. Surgery was a success, and I am ready to attack this rehab process," Lance wrote. "We will never understand why, but I trust that it is all a part of His plan, and I will be back better than ever."
He concluded, "This chapter is going to make the story even greater!"
This positive reaction isn't surprising considering Lance's past proclamations about his faith. He calls himself a "child of God" on his Twitter profile and has openly addressed his faith in interviews.
Continue to pray for Lance as he recovers from this severe injury.
