Kyle Shanahan To Brock Purdy: ‘I Don’t Think He Had A Bad One’

Brock Purdy, the quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, made his much-awaited preseason debut on Saturday, five months after undergoing surgery to repair a ruptured UCL. The 2022 rookie superstar also appeared to have not missed a step upon his return to the field since his unexpected breakout season.

“I thought he did real good, all the plays that he had he made and I don’t think he had a bad one,” head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters following the game, per the team transcript.

Purdy appeared back to full strength on his very first play, connecting with wide receiver Deebo Samuel for a 25-yard gain to start the drive in the Niners’ 21-20 victory over the Denver Broncos. He completed 4 out of 5 passes for 65 yards, adding an eight-yard rush to set up a field goal.

“Yeah, no, it felt really good just to be out there with the guys in a game environment. Obviously, just get the nerves out a little bit,” Purdy said. “Just the buildup to a game and everything, and then being able to get an early completion to Deebo and get things rolling. So, it felt really good to be able to get out there and drive and honestly, just be in a game environment, like I said. So, yeah, I’m excited about it.”

Updates on Purdy’s status have been almost frequent ever since he underwent surgery in March to treat his elbow injury. Pundits and fans alike have been impatiently awaiting any indication of whether his timeline still puts him on track for the start of the season.

His efficient performance vs the Broncos was just another indication of his preparedness for the regular season in three weeks after he was given the all-clear for practice before training camp and gradually increased his effort leading up to Saturday.

It was almost certain during the healing process that Purdy would start for San Francisco in Week 1 as long as he remained healthy. And after his performance on Saturday, that obstacle can almost certainly be said to be overcome.

Purdy only focused on football changes when asked if there was anything else he needed to do to prepare for the 49ers’ season opener against the Steelers on Sept. 10. He did not address any new injury barriers.

“Just keep honing in on the little details and stuff throughout the week, trying to be accurate as best as possible at practice,” he said. “Obviously, chip away at trying to take away from the mistakes at practice and feel you know, not perfect, but get close to it. And so, I want to be able to practice consistently and come Week One, be ready to rip it. So, we’re getting there.”

Sam Darnold and Trey Lance, the other two 49ers quarterbacks battling for the position of Purdy’s backup, each had final stats of 11 for 14 for 109 yards. Each had a touchdown and an interception, and their passer ratings for the night were nearly similar.

Purdy will play again in the preseason’s last game against the Chargers, according to Shanahan, who made the announcement on Saturday night. This will give the 23-year-old one more session before formally resuming control of the offense.
