Following Thursday night’s Hall of Fame game, the itch for NFL football has only intensified as we inch closer to the start of the 2023 season.

While the New York Jets and Cleveland Browns got their first preseason game in, the San Francisco 49ers won’t take the field for their first exhibition until next Sunday–August 13th–when they face the Las Vegas Raiders at Allegiant Stadium.

As we wait for game-action, NBC Sports Bay Area’s San Francisco 49ers beat writer Jennifer Lee Chan joined The Carmichael Dave Show with Jason Ross on Friday morning to update fans on the latest updates from training camp, including how quarterback Brock Purdy has looked during his return from injury, share expectations for Brandon Aiyuk, and more.

Plus: Should Brock Purdy suit up for San Francisco this preseason, or should the team look to play it safe with their QB1’s healing elbow?
