  • Josh Johnson Throws For 74 Yards In Relief

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Josh Johnson completed 7-of-13 passes for 74 yards in the Niners' 7-31 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. Johnson came in to relieve Brock Purdy after the rookie left the game with an elbow injury. He faced heavy pressure from an elite Eagles defense and was sacked twice. On one hit in the third quarter, Johnson's head was slammed into the turf, which caused him to be removed and put in concussion protocol. Johnson has been a career backup since entering the league in 2009, and he will not be a relevant player in fantasy football.

  • Josh Johnson Won't Return To The NFC Championship

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Josh Johnson (head) won't return to Sunday's meeting with the Eagles. The signal-caller entered to take over for Brock Purdy (elbow), who was injured in the first half. However, Johnson took a nasty hit in the third quarter and left for a concussion evaluation. Nevertheless, his day is over, meaning Purdy is back in under center, although he's certainly limited.

  • Josh Johnson Exits Sunday's Game Versus Philly

    San Francisco 49ers quarterback Josh Johnson (head) exited the NFC Championship versus the Philadelphia Eagles. The 36-year-old entered the contest in the first half after Brock Purdy (elbow) injured the elbow on his throwing arm. However, after Johnson took a nasty hit in the third quarter, he left for a concussion evaluation. Fantasy managers should consider him questionable to return. But if Johnson doesn't make it back, he'll finish with 74 yards off 7-for-13 passing. In the meantime, Purdy is back in under center. Yet, he's not 100%, meaning Christian McCaffrey may serve as the emergency quarterback.

  • 49ers Officially Sign Josh Johnson

    The San Francisco 49ers officially signed free-agent quarterback Josh Johnson on Tuesday to an undisclosed one-year deal. The move comes after starting signal-caller Jimmy Garoppolo (foot) suffered a serious Lisfranc foot injury in the Week 13 win over the Miami Dolphins. It was initially believed that Jimmy G would be lost for the season, but he will avoid surgery and could be available if the Niners make a deep playoff run. Johnson was signed off the Denver Broncos' practice squad, and it's his fourth stint with San Francisco. Rookie seventh-rounder Brock Purdy will take over the offense with Garoppolo hurt, but if something happens to Purdy as well, Johnson would be forced to make just the 10th NFL start of his career.
