49ers QB Brock Purdy expects to ‘be ready to roll’ vs. Seahawks despite oblique injury

Deebo Samuel was the most notable of the San Francisco 49ers injuries on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. All signs indicate that the injury could have been worse, though. It appears to be less significant than previously thought. However, expect the star wide receiver to miss time due to what is believed to "most likely" be a high-ankle sprain.

"They just said nothing was broken, so that was the best news," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after the game.

Others emerged a little banged up. Defensive lineman Kevin Givens and cornerback Dontae Johnson exited with knee injuries. Defensive lineman Kerry Hyder and cornerback Ambry Thomas are dealing with ankle injuries. Rookie cornerback Samuel Womack is in the concussion protocol.

That's a long list for a team entering a short week. They are slated to face the Seattle Seahawks on the road on Thursday night.

Oh, and then there is rookie quarterback Brock Purdy, the hero of the game who earned his first career win as a starter. He sustained an oblique injury. Shanahan was asked if that was why the quarterback exited in the fourth quarter.

"No, it just got to that point (a big lead) in the game, so we didn't put him back in," Shanahan responded. "He felt good by the end."

Purdy finished the game 16-of-21 for 185 passing yards, three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing), and a passer rating of 134.0 before Josh Johnson replaced him.

The 49ers will see how Purdy, Samuel, and the others feel when they report to the team on Monday morning. That's usually when a more thorough evaluation of player injuries can take place. But with a big matchup with Seattle—well, less significant after the Carolina Panthers beat them on Sunday—is there any level of concern that the quarterback might not be able to go on Thursday night?

"Yeah, I mean, we'll see how it goes this week," Purdy told reporters. "Just felt a little tight at the end, just from taking some hits. But honestly, man, like if I needed to play throughout the rest of the game, I definitely would have. So, I'm going to get some treatment on it and be ready to roll."

Does 49ers QB Brock Purdy need Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel for success?

By David Bonilla

Rumors circulated before and during the 2024 NFL Draft about the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers losing one of their top two wide receivers—Brandon Aiyuk or Deebo Samuel. Such a scenario could have significantly impacted the team's success in the upcoming season and posed a potential blow for quarterback Brock Purdy, who has thrived alongside the dynamic duo on the field. However, none of these speculations came to fruition. Both Aiyuk and Samuel remain on the roster, at least for another season, though their future beyond that remains uncertain. Aiyuk is seeking a contract extension that would position him among the highest-paid wide receivers in the NFL. At the same time, Samuel already commands a significant salary following a deal rework in 2022.

Steve Young on keeping the 49ers competitive after paying Brock Purdy

The San Francisco 49ers are gearing up to elevate quarterback Brock Purdy to their highest-paid player status starting next year. Negotiations for a contract extension with the young signal-caller, entering his third NFL season, are on the horizon. Purdy's on-field performance has far exceeded his current salary. Last season, he set a single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards and led the 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance while earning a base salary of $870,000. Even for the upcoming season, his salary will only bump up to $985,000. That may sound like a lot to the ordinary person, but it is only a fraction of the team's salary cap. However, Purdy's next contract is expected to catapult him into the ranks of the NFL's highest-paid players. That title

49ers' Brock Purdy reflects on NFCCG, first start, surgery recovery, family's Tom Brady plans

On Thursday night, Brock Purdy joined several former San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks at the Dwight Clark Legacy Series event in San Jose. During the event, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, one of the moderators, asked the 24-year-old to rewind a couple of years and reflect on how he burst onto the NFL scene in 2022. Purdy's first significant playing time came when the 49ers lost two quarterbacks that season—first Trey Lance and then Jimmy Garoppolo. Purdy stepped in for Garoppolo against the Miami Dolphins, unaware that he would be the starter moving forward. "Jimmy went down, and they're like, 'All right, you're up,'" Purdy shared. "So I'm in tune to what we're doing against Miami's defense and stuff on the sidelines. And so, when they said that I was
