Dan Beyer and Rich Ohrnberger are sitting in for Covino & Rich today and they address the news that San Francisco 49ers QB Brock Purdy has postponed the surgery on his injured elbow. There are still more questions than answers and Dan Beyer doubts that Purdy will be ready to start the season regardless. But he believes this is actually a good thing for the Niners as they will finally get a good look at Trey Lance so they can determine whether he should be part of their future.

Dan Beyer: “What this (Brock) Purdy injury does is it opens up the potential and the opportunity for Trey Lance’s last shot.”

Rich Ohrnberger: “Ready or not, here comes your opportunity kid. After a three year wait, we hope you’re ready.”
