Trey Lance intercepted three times by defense of 49ers in training

SANTA CLARA — During a four-week training camp, 49ers quarterback Trey Lance had his ups and downs.

Before Monday, however, he had not thrown more than one interception during a training session.

That changed when he was intercepted three times in 49ers’ first practice since returning from Minnesota, including on his first two passes of the day. Both casts sailed high and were changed direction.

Each of Lance’s interceptions came on passes intended for All-Pro wide receiver Deebo Samuel.

Cornerback Emmanuel Moseley returned to training after missing a few weeks with a hamstring injury. He completed a pass that took safety Talanoa Hufanga.

Then Moseley intercepted a pass that was high and out of Samuel’s hands.

“It felt good,” Moseley said of his return to training. “I’ve been away for the past few weeks. That sucks. You never want to be out, but I know that when I go out again, I need to make some impact to get the boys going. ”

Linebacker Fred Warner caught Lance’s third interception when he stepped in front of Samuel in the middle of the field.

Lance finished the day with five completions on his last six attempts. He completed nine of 16 pass attempts in practice.

The 49ers returned to training after playing against the Minnesota Vikings on Saturday night. The club will train again on Tuesday morning before heading to Houston for Thursday’s preseason final against the Texans.
