The San Francisco 49ers will have their opening quarterback Brock Purdy under center for a further talk with the Seattle Seahawks in primetime. The team’s week 14 championship game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers left the rookie quarterback limited all week with bending and rib issues that persisted. Purdy’s opportunity was not subject to a last-minute agreement until the day of the game, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan, even though the San Francisco 49ers‘ starting quarterback is eligible to return to action in just four days.
At Lumen Field, which Shanahan and the guys he has trained have described multiple times this week as one of the NFL’s more unsettling stadiums, Brock Purdy will make his early debut on the road.
Brock Purdy said “ This is apparently the most adverse environment that you could apparently play in. All these fellows have played here a group of times, so just listening to them out, what’s wonderful and what’s not in terms of conversation and procedure. So we’ll be apt to roll for it.
Purdy is going off a remarkable week 14 where the opening quarterback finished 16-of-21 passes for 185 yards, two field goals, and included rushing field goals of his own opposite to Tampa bay. With the achievement last weekend, Brock Purdy became the early quarterback to make his early course start opposite Tom Brady and gain a win.
Also, opposing lineman Kerry Hyder Jr. and defensive back Ambry Thomas, both recorded as debatable on the team’s last-minute damage information of the week, will also be going for Thursday’s night game.
Six other players were excluded on Wednesday, counting the quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo(foot), opposing back Tarvarius Moore( knee), primary receiver Deebo Samuel(knee, ankle), Kevin Givens (knee), and cornerback Samuel Womack III (concussion).
Hassan Ridgeway, an opposing lineman, was placed on the Injured Reserve list on Thursday afternoon due to a pectoral injury. The squad also approved opposing lineman Akeem Spence to the active roster and activated cornerback Janoris Jenkins and primary receiver Willie Snead IV.
