Saturday, the 49ers announced Purdy had cleared concussion protocol and won’t have an injury designation for Sunday’s game, meaning he’s good to start against the Bengals.
That comes as a bit of a surprise, considering Purdy wasn’t added to the injury report as in concussion protocol until Wednesday afternoon — two days after San Francisco’s Monday night game.
Yet Purdy is good to go and barring yet another twist of a surprise, he’ll start against the Bengals. He’s thrown 11 touchdowns and three interceptions this year on a 67.9 completion percentage.
Sam Darnold was set to get the nod as starter against the Bengals if Purdy couldn’t go.
