Colin Kaepernick says return to practice went well

49ers coach Chip Kelly said the plan for this week is for quarterback Colin Kaepernick to return to practice and then get his first playing time of the preseason (and since November 1 of last year) when the 49ers play the Packers. Nothing happened on Monday to suggest the 49ers will be deviating from that…

Chip Kelly declares Colin Kaepernick to be “fine”

Colin Kaepernick’s dead arm apparently has been revived. “I think Kap is fine,” coach Chip Kelly told reporters on Sunday. “I saw Kap. He’s fine.” Kelly said that Kaepernick will “throw some more” on Monday, in practice and not on the side. But it’s not clear whether Kaepernick will throw in both 7-on-7 sessions and 11-on-11…

Chip Kelly: Colin Kaepernick won’t play this week, will be back next week

Colin Kaepernick’s “arm fatigue” is going to cost him another game, but his return to action should be soon.

Trent Baalke: Colin Kaepernick’s arm is fatigued, not injured

Colin Kaepernick is still not throwing, but 49ers General Manager Trent Baalke insists that Kaepernick isn’t injured. Baalke said today that “injured” is the wrong way to describe what Kaepernick is going through. “‘Fatigued’ is the better word,” Baalke said, via the Sacramento Bee. Whatever word you use, Kaepernick still isn’t throwing a football, which…

Kaepernick still not throwing

With the 49ers practicing with the Broncos in Colorado, quarterback Colin Kaepernick is in uniform. But, via Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News, Kaepernick still isn’t throwing. Kaepernick has been battling shoulder soreness, which has kept him from throwing for a full week. This means that Kaepernick, at least for today, won’t be participating…

Wednesday morning one-liners

Said Bills coach Rex Ryan of WR Marquise Goodwin, “I’ve been very impressed with him. Hopefully he just keeps coming, because he has been impressive.” The injury keeping Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski out of practice has been described as just a bruise.

49ers sign Christian Ponder

With Colin Kaepernick ailing and Thad Lewis done for the season, the 49ers have added a veteran to the quarterback room. Christian Ponder has signed a one-year deal with San Francisco.

Colin Kaepernick doesn’t throw on Tuesday

Over the weekend, 49ers coach Chip Kelly said that he hoped quarterback Colin Kaepernick would be able to play against the Broncos this Saturday despite a dead arm that kept him from playing in the preseason opener. The chances of that happening haven’t improved over the last couple of days. Kaepernick didn’t throw during Tuesday’s…

Will Kaepernick play for the 49ers this year?

In February, it became clear that quarterback Colin Kaepernick wanted out of San Francisco. In March, a trade to Denver nearly happened. The calendar now says August, and it’s hardly a certainty that Kaepernick will be a member of the 49ers in 2016 or, if he is, that he’ll actually play. Kaepernick continues to be…

49ers’ Thad Lewis suffers torn ACL

While Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick continue to compete to be the 49ers’ starting quarterback, third-string quarterback Thad Lewis has suffered a significant injury.

Chip Kelly: Blaine Gabbert doesn’t have “leg up” on starting job

Blaine Gabbert was the only one of the two 49ers quarterbacks competing for the starting job that saw action in Sunday night’s game against the Texans, continuing a trend from the spring that has seen Gabbert on the field while Colin Kaepernick recovers from injury. It was a tired arm that kept Kaepernick out this…

Their passing game’s not much to look at, but 49ers can run

The 49ers might have a pretty shabby competition for their starting quarterback job. But they did show in the preseason opener some capability to do the thing which will minimize the impact either Blaine Gabbert or Colin Kaepernick have on the game. Through a fairly sloppy first half against the Texans, the 49ers ran for…

Blaine Gabbert starts slowly, makes a few plays for 49ers

Colin Kaepernick’s not even playing tonight. But if he’s losing the starting quarterback job to Blaine Gabbert, it might say more about him than the 49ers. San Francisco’s offense got off to something less than a flying start in Chip Kelly’s first game as coach, with a three-and-out followed by a Carlos Hyde fumble which…

Colin Kaepernick not playing for 49ers on Sunday

49ers coach Chip Kelly hopes to resolve the quarterback competition in San Francisco based in large part on preseason performance. In Week One of the exhibition slate, Colin Kaepernick will be doing nothing to help his chances. Or, technically, to hurt them. The 49ers have announced that Kaepernick will miss Sunday night’s game against the…

Kaepernick seeks NFL permission to wear a tinted visor

The NFL, not wanting players to look like Darth Vader, does not allow tinted visors without a medical reason. San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick says he has a medical reason and wants to wear the visor that he’s been wearing in practice during games as well. Although Kaepernick declined to say what his medical issue…
