Niners beat writer Matt Maiocco reports QB Brock Purdy (elbow) is likely to undergo surgery on his torn UCL.
Purdy will ultimately undergo surgery and face a six-month recovery after suffering a torn UCL in the 49ers’ NFC Championship Game against the Eagles but has reportedly sought out other opinions on his injury.
Despite seeking out other opinions, surgery was always the most likely outcome for Purdy, who should be ready in time for training camp if all goes well.
Purdy and Trey Lance are expected to enter 2023 as the 49ers’ top-two quarterbacks, but the team is expected to bring in at least one veteran as both are working their way back from injuries.
