49ers quarterback Brock Purdy finally went under the knife this Friday to repair a torn UCL in his throwing arm. Thankfully, the latest update on "Mr. Irrelevant" is quite positive. 

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo said Purdy's UCL was repaired with an internal brace. That means the recovery timeline isn't nearly as long as it would've been if he had Tommy John surgery. 

Per the report from Garafolo, the 49ers can expect Purdy to begin throwing in three months. 

"The expectation is Purdy will begin throwing in three months and build up his strength from there," Garafolo said. 

Purdy had an incredible rookie season with the 49ers, completing 67.1 percent of his pass attempts for 1,374 yards with 13 touchdowns and four interceptions. 

The moment never felt too big for Purdy, who led the 49ers to playoff victories over the Cowboys and Seahawks. Unfortunately, he didn't really get the chance to showcase his skills against the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game.

Hopefully, Purdy makes a full recovery from this UCL procedure and returns to the gridiron in time for Week 1.
