Lance had knee surgery last offseason, but injury details weren’t made public. The most likely diagnosis in this case was a meniscus tear, which unfortunately is associated with shorter careers and decreased game participation in the NFL. Luckily, those effects should be blunted for quarterbacks. Overall, minor bump in his long-term risk, with minimal short-term concerns.
