For the second consecutive game, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy experienced a shoulder stinger, with the latest occurrence taking place on Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens. Purdy received clearance to return to the game, but the outcome had seemingly been decided by that point.

In addition to Purdy's injury, the 49ers also dealt with several injuries along the offensive line. Head coach Kyle Shanahan, considering the situation, chose to keep Sam Darnold in the game rather than risk putting Purdy in harm's way.

Purdy was a full practice participant on Wednesday and is expected to do everything on Thursday. The quarterback addressed reporters before the Thursday session, responding to a query about any lingering effects from the injury.

"No, it's been good," Purdy responded. "Just got a lot of treatment done on it and everything. Sort of just work out the soreness within the whole shoulder area, trap area. But it feels good, so I'll be good for this game."

This season, Purdy has completed 68.8 percent of his passes for 4,050 yards, registering 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Notably, he became the first 49ers quarterback to surpass the 4,000-yard mark in over two decades.

The 49ers will release a practice participation report after Thursday's session, shedding light on the statuses of key players such as defensive tackle Arik Armstead, guard Aaron Banks, safety Ji'Ayir Brown, wide receiver Jauan Jennings, and tackle Jaylon Moore, all of whom missed Wednesday's practice.

The San Francisco 49ers will hold a mandatory minicamp from June 4 through 6, officially concluding the team's offseason program. After that, the Niners will break for over a month and return to the Santa Clara facilities for training camp in late July. Between that time, starting quarterbacks will often organize throwing sessions with their receivers in an effort to build chemistry ahead of the rigors of training camp. 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy has been unable to participate in such sessions over the last two years. The last overall draft pick in 2022, Purdy had yet to make a name for himself during his first offseason. Last year, he was still recovering from offseason surgery on his throwing arm. RELATED:

Why one analyst is worried for Brock Purdy if 49ers trade Brandon Aiyuk

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy achieved a remarkable feat in 2023, setting a single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards. This accomplishment is noteworthy, considering the illustrious quarterbacks who have graced the organization's history. A significant portion of those yards came from wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk, who amassed a career-high and team-leading 1,342 receiving yards. Most of his 75 catches originated from passes thrown by Purdy. Amidst significant offseason chatter surrounding the 49ers' star receiver, including several unsubstantiated trade rumors, Aiyuk's future remains uncertain. Former NFL player James Jones, now an analyst, expressed concern for Purdy should Aiyuk's tenure in the Bay Area come to an end. "I

5 reasons why 49ers QB Brock Purdy will be better in 2024

The San Francisco 49ers appear to have found their quarterback. It was a bumpy road on the journey to locate him, too. There was the up-and-down tenure of Jimmy Garoppolo, whose relationship with Head Coach Kyle Shanahan seemed dysfunctional, at times. Then there was the short-lived Trey Lance experiment. Garoppolo and Lance are no longer being with the team, and one major reason is the emergence of Brock Purdy as the team's QB. Purdy finished his second season with a trip to the Super Bowl, after having a Pro Bowl season in which he finished with 4,280 yards and 31 touchdowns. He also led the league in multiple statistics, including passer rating (113.0) and QBR (72.8). Additionally, Purdy finished fourth in NFL MVP voting. But a year ago, no one knew what to
