49ers QB Brock Purdy completed 4 attempts for a mere 23 yards in Sunday's NFC Championship loss vs. the Eagles. The rookie left the game early in the 1st quarter with an elbow injury and was replaced by QB Josh Johnson. Johnson was later forced to exit the contest due to a concussion, ultimately leading to Purdy re-entering the game. HC Kyle Shanahan shared after the game that Purdy "wouldn’t have gone back in if we hadn’t had to" make that decision. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported later Sunday evening that Purdy injured his ulnar collateral ligament and will undergo an MRI on Monday. If his UCL isn't ruptured, it's expected to be a 6-week recovery. Anything more severe would require surgery and put dynasty managers who recently made aggressive pushes to acquire the QB in a tough spot. We should know more tomorrow. Stay tuned for updates.

49ers QB Brock Purdy left Sunday’s game against the Eagles with a right elbow injury. He’s officially questionable to return. Veteran Josh Johnson would take over for San Francisco if Purdy is unable to return.

UPDATE: Purdy entered in the 3rd quarter following a concussion check for Josh Johnson.

49ers QB Brock Purdy completed 19 of 29 attempts for 214 yards in Sunday’s Divisional Round win vs. the Cowboys. The rookie successfully extended his winning streak as a starter to 7 games and will now be preparing for the NFC Championship game against an Eagles defense that ranks as the 11th toughest matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to QBs.

49ers QB Brock Purdy completed 18 of 30 attempts for 332 yards and 3 TDs in Saturday's Wild Card win vs. the Seahawks. The rookie signal-caller looked shaky entering halftime but turned things around and led a winning effort in his 5th career start. Purdy dispersed a pair of TDs into the hands of RBs Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell in the contest. His strongest connection was with WR Deebo Samuel, who logged 6 receptions for 133 yards and a score on Saturday. Purdy and the 49ers are looking strong headed into the next round of the NFL playoffs.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, rib) practiced fully all week and doesn't carry an injury designation ahead of Week 17 vs. the Raiders. Purdy ranks 10th among QBs in fantasy points over the past 4 weeks, with 2 passing TDs in every game. He's done it on high-end efficiency, averaging just 26.5 pass attempts per game. But he should be efficient again this weekend against a bad Raiders defense. The 49ers' 25.75-point implied total is 4th highest on the week.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, rib) upgraded to full practice participation on Thursday. We fully expect the wunderkind rookie to be under center in Week 17 vs. the Raiders. We'll keep an eye on Friday's injury report in case something changes.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, rib) was listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday. The gutsy rookie has played hurt for a few weeks now, so he'll probably get the green light to take on the Raiders in Week 17. Just in case something changes, we'll keep watch on the news wire for updates.

Rookie QB Brock Purdy has now appeared in 4 games since Jimmy Garoppolo's injury, and he has finished each of them with 2 TD passes. He threw for 234 yards and 2 scores on 15-of-22 passing in Saturday's win over the Commanders, marking his 3rd consecutive start with 26 or fewer attempts. Purdy has also delivered passer ratings of 114.6 or better in each of his starts. Both of his Week 16 scores went to TE George Kittle, the 2nd straight week in which the pair connected for 2 TDs. Week 17 holds an upside matchup with the Raiders, who have been the 3rd-best scoring matchup for QBs by our adjusted fantasy points allowed.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, ribs) is active for tonight's game vs. the Seahawks. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, but we never sensed much concern about his availability for this one. Purdy has played well the past 2 weeks but is still only a viable option in 2-QB and Superflex leagues.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, ribs) is expected to suit up tonight vs. Seattle, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Purdy practiced this week, so the news isn’t surprising. He remains a QB2 in a matchup that should turn up plenty of rushing.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique, rib) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Seahawks. He was listed as a limited participant in practice all week. We're expecting Purdy to play tomorrow night. If he can't, the 'Niners will turn to veteran QB Josh Johnson.

49ers QB Brock Purdy (oblique) was listed as a limited participant in what was a light practice on Tuesday. HC Kyle Shanahan wouldn't say for sure whether Purdy will start Thursday night's game vs. the Seahawks but did say that the oblique injury is more of a pain-tolerance issue. Purdy told the media that he's able to run but hasn't tried to throw since Sunday. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow. QB Josh Johnson would start against Seattle if Purdy can't.

Niners QB Brock Purdy threw for 185 yards and 2 TDs in Sunday's beatdown of the Buccaneers. He found WR Brandon Aiyuk and RB Christian McCaffrey for scores, each from 27+ yards out. Purdy added a 2-yard scramble for a TD as well. We wouldn't go chasing Purdy on waivers this week, but it looks like he at least won't kill the fantasy upside for San Francisco pass-catchers in upcoming meetings with the Seahawks, Commanders and Raiders.

49ers QB Brock Purdy suffered an oblique injury during Sunday's win over the Bucs, HC Kyle Shanahan said afterward. It didn't knock Purdy out of that one, but Shanahan wouldn't guarantee that Purdy will be able to play vs. the Seahawks on Thursday night. He's scheduled for additional testing on Monday, so we should learn more then. QB Josh Johnson would be next up for San Francisco if Purdy misses time.

The 49ers are signing QB Josh Johnson off the Broncos' practice squad. The 36-year-old doesn't lack for experience and threw for 300+ yards for 2 different teams last year (Jets and Ravens). QB Brock Purdy figures to get the 1st crack at replacing QB Jimmy Garoppolo, but Johnson will be around as insurance.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo broke his left foot in the win over Miami and will miss the rest of the season, HC Kyle Shanahan said afterward. It's a significant loss for a 'Niners squad that already lost QB Trey Lance. That leaves the starting job to QB Brock Purdy, who played surprisingly well against the Dolphins, completing 25 of 37 passes for 210 yards, 2 TDs and 1 INT. Purdy will only be a fantasy option in 2-QB and Superflex leagues. But he seems capable of keeping this offense afloat the rest of the way.

49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo was carted to the locker room during the 1st quarter of Sunday's game vs. Miami. He appeared to injured his left leg on a sack. We'll update Garoppolo's status when we learn more. QB Brock Purdy has entered for San Francisco.

Update: Garoppolo has an ankle injury and is questionable to return, the team announced.
