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 in the joint practice with the Broncos. Which also means that the 49ers won’t get to see Kaepernick in a non-contact practice setting.

Which also means that the Broncos won’t get a close look at a guy for whom, in theory, they could still trade if they decide that Mark Sanchez, Trevor Siemian, and Paxton Lynch aren’t the answer.

Sure, it’s unlikely. But far stranger things have happened.
