The San Francisco 49ers were left without a functional quarterback after Brock Purdy and Josh Johnson suffered injuries in Sunday's NFC Championship Game.

Purdy suffered an elbow injury, but was forced to return to the game when Johnson was knocked out with a concussion.

Jimmy Garoppolo was on the sidelines for the 49ers, but was not in uniform.

Garoppolo fractured his foot and he was not cleared to return ahead of the game in Philadelphia. After it was over, Garoppolo was left to lament his role as an observer.

"I wish I had a helmet," he said.
