Brock Purdy: Come Week One, Be Ready To Rip It
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy plans to ‘chip away’ at his injury rehab and practice ahead of the season.
Brock Purdy made his comeback from the torn UCL he sustained during the 2023 playoffs. He featured in the 49ers’ 21 – 20 preseason win over the Denver Broncos.
Brock Purdy looked comfortable, and finished 4-of-5 for 65 yards. As well as that, he set up a field goal with an eight yard scramble.
Purdy says the key to building on his breakout campaign is to smooth out the wrinkles in practice.

“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.
“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 finished 11-of-14 for 109 yards, while Trey Lance was 12-of-18 for 173 yards. Both quarterbacks had a touchdown and an interception each. However, there is no doubt in the 49ers organization that Purdy is the starter for next 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 said.
