Blaine Gabbert: I’m never going to shy away from competition

49ers coach Chip Kelly reiterated on Tuesday that the competition for the starting quarterback job has no timetable and that Blaine Gabbert isn’t ahead of Colin Kaepernick at this point because Kaepernick hasn’t been medically cleared to practice yet.
