New aerial footage shows sickening hit that caused Brock Purdy’s concussion symptoms

New TV footage shows the moment Brock Purdy suffered a head injury that could keep him out of San Francisco’s Week 8 game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

On Wednesday, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed that Purdy was in concussion protocol.

Shanahan said the 23-year-old began experiencing concussion symptoms on the flight home after San Francisco’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Purdy was shaken by a direct clash with Vikings linebacker Jordan Hicks while attempting to sneak up on the quarterback midway through the fourth quarter.

‘Mr. “Irrelevant” continued despite the hit, throwing interceptions in the 22-17 defeat, San Francisco’s second loss in as many games.

New aerial footage has now been shared, showing the sickening helmet-on-helmet collision that most likely caused the concussion symptoms.

Hicks could still face a fine for the hit after the incident was missed by match officials.

NFL rules prohibit a player from lowering his head and making forced contact with an opponent.

If Purdy does not clear concussion protocol, former New York Jets and Carolina Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold will line up under center.

“I have as much confidence in Sam as I could have in someone I’ve never been in an NFL game with,” Shanahan said of Darnold.

Darnold, the third overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, is in his first year in San Francisco after three seasons as a Jet and the last two with the Carolina Panthers.

Purdy could join injured Deebo Samuel and Trent Williams on the sidelines as the Niners look to get back to winning ways against the Bengals.
