Brock Purdy ended his rookie season in the worst way possible when he got injured in the first quarter of the NFC championship game on Sunday. The San Francisco quarterback tore his UCL in the 49ers’ 31-7 loss to the Eagles.
The team never had a chance without him, and it got even worse when Josh Johnson had to exit with a concussion.
However, 49ers tight end George Kittle asked Purdy the perfect question after suffering his injury.
“Brock [Purdy], lefty? Are you ambidextrous?,” Kittle asked, in a video captured by NFL Films.

Purdy told him no on that question. After two injuries to their only two starting quarterbacks, the franchise contemplated putting running back Christian McCaffrey before putting Purdy back into the game, who was completely not himself due to injury.
His injury turned the team into a one-dimensional running team as the Eagles did not have to worry about the passing game at all.
If a QB ever comes into the league being able to throw with both arms, it could truly change the game going forward.
Purdy—who will reportedly miss six months—finished with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions in nine games during the regular season before leading San Francisco to playoff wins against the Seahawks and Cowboys.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
