QB Brock Purdy is a renowned football quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League. However, it appears fans might not be able to witness their favorite player on the field for the next six months. Brock Purdy recently tore his UCL during the NFC Championship game.

According to multiple reports, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy will be out for at least six months after tearing his UCL on Sunday during the NFC Championship game.

In the first quarter of the game, with the 49ers trailing 7-0, Purdy, the final choice (262nd overall) of the 2022 NFL Draft, was hit by Eagles linebacker Haason Reddick as he attempted to make a pass. Reddick struck Purdy in the throwing arm, which led to the release of the football.

After reviewing the play, the officials found that Purdy had really fumbled the ball, which Eagles defensive lineman Linval Joseph later recovered. The play had previously been called an incomplete throw.

Purdy will be sidelined until at least July, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who confirmed the injury’s severity. Purdy is currently undergoing a second opinion to see whether he requires surgery.

The setback was painful for Purdy, who took over as the Niners’ starting quarterback in Week 14 after Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo suffered setbacks earlier in the season. Josh Johnson, Brock’s stand-in, began the contest on Sunday, but JJ was forced to leave after sustaining a concussion, forcing Kyle Shanahan to return to an injured Purdy.

The Eagles triumphed 31-7 and went on to play in Super Bowl LVII in Arizona despite the fact that Purdy could hardly throw. He finished the game with only four attempts and 23 passing yards. However, Thirsty wishes a speedy recovery to the player. For further updates stay tuned to Thirsty.
