Brock Purdy Will Be Cleared To Throw Next Week

  • Headshot for Brock Purdy

    San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan said that quarterback Brock Purdy (elbow) will be allowed to start throwing sometime next week. Purdy had surgery to fix a torn UCL in his right arm, and he remains on track to be ready for Week 1 of the 2023 regular season, barring any setbacks along the way. With Purdy out, Trey Lance and Sam Darnold are expected to split first-team repetitions in offseason workouts, but unless Purdy suffers a setback, he's fully expected to open the year as the starter under center after impressing in his rookie season in 2022. The 23-year-old played in nine regular season games (five starts) and completed 67.1% of his passes for 1,374 yards, 13 TDs and only four picks. Purdy should only be taken in two-QB superflex fantasy leagues.
