Brock Purdy gives 49ers reason to be optimistic with projected July return from elbow surgery

The San Francisco 49ers and its supporters have good news as quarterback Brock Purdy is rumored to be back on the team following his recovery from elbow surgery.

In addition to becoming the first quarterback for the 49ers to win his first three NFL starts, Purdy joined Miami Dolphins Hall of Fame Dan Marino as the only quarterback with multiple touchdown passes and a triple-digit quarterback rating in each of their first three starts since 1950.

Why does Brock Purdy need to have surgery on his elbow?

During the NFC Championship loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on January 29, Purdy suffered an elbow injury after taking a hit from Eagles Haason Reddick. He underwent successful surgery to repair the torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

The QB’s right elbow underwent internal brace repair by his physician Dr. Keith Meister, and it is anticipated that Purdy will begin a throwing progression program in three months.

What was Purdy’s statement regarding his surgery?

Brock recently revealed in an interview with Phoenix’s Fox Sports 910-AM that he has been recovering in Arizona since the operation under the care of a specialist and pointed out the most possible projected time for coming back in July. BP claimed that the specialist is treating him in a way that will enable him to recover quickly and effectively because he is a baseball expert.

The quarterback said, “I’m with a specialist out here who’s done this rehab on the elbow hundreds of thousands of times. He’s a baseball guy and they trust in him and everything is going as planned.”

Even though the 23-year-old is working toward a quick recovery, sometimes it depends on the environment and the course of treatment, so nothing is certain at this time. He must maintain his physical fitness before entering the field in order to prevent further injury.

Purdy stated, “The protocol is you start throwing at three months, but it all depends on how your therapy and your range of motion and everything goes up until that point. There are definitely some boxes I have to check off first before I get to that point, but that’s the plan as of now.”

No position on the field is more crucial than quarterback, and when the San Fransisco were in a desperate situation, it was Purdy who kept them in control so they could compete with the opposition.

With four touchdowns in a playoff game, Mr. Irrelevant made NFL history as the first rookie, and the 49ers scored the most points ever with a starting rookie quarterback. Therefore, it goes without saying that the 49ers are eagerly anticipating Purdy’s return.
