The 49ers host the Buccaneers in Week 11 in a game that has to feel full circle for Brock Purdy.
Guaranteed, the second time won't be as high-profile an occassion as the first.
A year ago, the Bucs were visiting the Niners at Levi's Stadium in a game that was supposed to be future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady's homecoming, a chance to show off against his boyhood team in the region where he grew up.
Meanwhile, Purdy was making his first-ever NFL start. And, as the final pick of that year's NFL Draft, Purdy shouldn't have stood a chance.
Except San Francisco walloped Brady, and Purdy etched himself into the accolade book, becoming the first quarterback to defeat the GOAT while making his first NFL start.
For Week 11 in 2023, there won't be the fanfare. Brady is retired, Purdy is an established NFL quarterback, and essentially the only drama that preludes the game is whether or not edge Nick Bosa will reheat his rivalry with Bucs current quarterback, Baker Mayfield.
Regardless, here's what fans will want to know about Sunday's contest between San Francisco and Tampa Bay.
49ers injury report vs. Buccaneers
The 49ers had only two players ruled out for Sunday's tilt: left guard Aaron Banks (turf toe) and offensive lineman Nick Zakelj (biceps).
Zakelj will land on injured reserve after undergoing season-ending surgery, and the Niners also promoted to rookies: cornerback Darrell Luter Jr. and offensive lineman Corey Luciano.
Luter was previously on the reserve/PUP list with a knee injury suffered during offseason activities.
