San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy suffered a complete tear of the UCL in his throwing elbow in Sunday’s NFC Championship Game and will likely need surgery, the NFL Network reported Monday.
Purdy is seeking a second opinion on the elbow while he and the team are hoping that he can undergo a repair surgery, as opposed to a complete reconstruction of the elbow via Tommy John surgery, according to the NFL Network.
The 49ers are recommending surgery and if it’s just a repair surgery, Purdy will miss six months but should be back in time for the start of training camp, according to ESPN.
