Kaepernick’s view differs from what Baalke called “a good conversation”

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is back in practice this week and planning to return to preseason game action this weekend.

Colin Kapernick “on track” to play Friday, no call on who starts

The plan coming into the week was for 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to practice without restrictions and then play in Friday’s preseason game against the Packers.

Wednesday morning one-liners

Said Texans coach Bill O’Brien of the new kickoff rule, “When the rule was put into place, it was, I believe, intended to be put in for player safety, to monitor player safety and try to help that issue as far as big hits. What I’m seeing, though – and preseason is a lot about…

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.

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…
