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 (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.

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.

Ravens QB Lamar Jackson (ankle) did not travel with the team to Cincinnati and is out for Sunday's game vs. the Bengals. With QB Tyler Huntley on the COVID list, Baltimore is down to QB Josh Johnson, who signed with the team just 11 days ago. Johnson is 35 and has made just 8 NFL starts -- none since 2018. He did get some action with the Jets earlier this season, completing 27 of 41 passes for 317 yards, 3 TDs and 1 INT in relief of QB Mike White in a wild Thursday nighter vs. the Colts. Johnson might not be a downgrade from Huntley as a passer, but this is still a tough spot considering how little time he's had with the Ravens.

Ravens QB Tyler Huntley tested positive for COVID on Saturday morning and will miss Sunday's game against the Bengals. There's still a chance that Lamar Jackson plays, but he was expected to back up Huntley if active. Josh Johnson is now expected to start, 11 days after joining the Ravens.

Jets QB Mike White appeared to injured his right wrist in the 1st quarter of Thursday night's game vs. the Colts. He tried throwing on the sidelines but looked uncomfortable. QB Josh Johnson has entered for the Jets. White was playing well again before exiting, completing 7 of 11 passes for 95 yards and a score.

Update: White is officially questionable to return with a right forearm injury.

Redskins QB Josh Johnson will start next weekend's game against the Jaguars, HC Jay Gruden announced shortly after the loss to the Giants. Johnson's mobility gave Washington's offense a semblance of a spark vs. the G-Men. He finished 11-of-16 passing for 195 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT while adding 45 yards and a score on the ground. That rushing ability adds intrigue to Johnson's fantasy stock -- but he'll only be a DFS consideration for Week 15.
