49ers' Brock Purdy dealing with torn UCL injury; expected to miss six months

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy suffered a torn UCL injury in the team's NFC Championship game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

What It Means:

Purdy was unfortunately knocked out of Sunday's game against the Eagles after suffering an elbow injury, and while the surprise breakout rookie did his best to return to the game, he was ultimately only able to play a single snap after the injury. Further testing today revealed that Purdy suffered a UCL injury, and according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the rookie quarterback is now expected to miss sixth months. The 49ers will have many interesting decisions to make regarding their quarterback position this offseason, with this injury only further complicating the matter.

Purdy will finish his rookie season completing 114 passes on 170 attempts for 1,374 yards, 13 passing touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. He helped guide the 49ers to a 5-0 record in the regular season as a starter, and even won a playoff game despite his seventh-round draft capital.
