Brock Purdy suffered torn UCL, will be out for six months

The San Francisco 49ers had a terrible loss to the Philadelphia Eagles when they met in the NFC Championship game on Sunday, and if the loss weren't enough, Brock Purdy, QB #2 was diagnosed with an ulnar collateral ligament injury on his throwing arm.

Purdy is expected to lose 6 months

The San Francisco 49ers' had a difficult game ahead and made a plan to neutralize the unstoppable Philadelphia Eagles, however, they did not expect the injuries to take over.

The ball was hiked and Purdy who had completed four passes for 23 yards, was rushed by Hasson Reddick who went straight for the throwing arm to provoke a fumble which he succeeded, however, did not expect to cause harm to the QB.

Brock Purdy spoke to Pro Football Talk and said that "My arm just felt like it stretched out, just felt like, really, a lot of just shocks all over from my elbow down to my wrist - front and back. Just pain, really, all over."

Brock Purdy had an elbow injury while Josh Johnson had a concussion

If it weren't enough, the next QB in line, after Purdy, ,Josh Johnson, suffered a concussion in the 3rd quarter and Purdy had to return to the game to salvage whatever he could.

"I'd been throwing after the hit occurred on the sideline just to see where I was at. But even in those throws it was painful," Purdy said. "So, I couldn't throw anything probably over 10 yards, 5 yards. So, that's why we just had some screens. It was really our only option when I went back in."

Doctors are hoping to avoid having reconstructive surgery but if he does, he'll have a reconstructive procedure which will have him ready to join the team until the Niners' training camp by summer
