When the 49ers take on the Bengals on Sunday, it’s possible that their starting quarterback will be available.
Several sources on the scene indicate that Brock Purdy returned to practice on Thursday after missing the session on Wednesday due to concussion protocol.
Purdy’s involvement, however probably minimal, does not imply that he is exempt. However, it’s encouraging that he’s making improvements and might be available for Week 8.
Following Monday night’s loss to the Vikings, Purdy started exhibiting concussion-like symptoms, head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters on Wednesday.
This season, Brock Purdy has completed 68% of his throws for 1,668 yards, 11 touchdowns, and 3 interceptions.
Sam Darnold will start in lieu of Brock Purdy in the event that he is unable to play in Week 8.
