Chip Kelly declares Colin Kaepernick to be “fine”

AP

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 team drills.

“I don’t know that,” Kelly said. “We’ll see how it goes when he gets out there and starts throwing. So don’t put me and say I said this. I don’t know. He’s going to start throwing tomorrow and we’ll see how it goes, see how he progresses.”

Kaepernick has yet to play during the preseason, giving Blaine Gabbert a clear chance to win the starting job, essentially by default. Kaepernick missed the entire offseason program, and he hasn’t practiced in well over a week due to a condition that the team has taken great pains not to call an injury, even though it seemingly is. Or was. Or whatever.

  1. Not that I care, but….

    It was not a “DEAD ARM”, it was a sore arm, like when you haven’t been to the Gym in a while and then over do it.

    The term “dead arm” signifies a tare or dislocation. Of course they could be lying and it could be much worse, but that doesn’t appear to be the case.

    My question is…

    Why is the media so ready to assume the worst? It’s like you want it to be something terrible.

  2. Does he have an arm “Tare” ? Like a tax? Or did you mean the English word “tear?” Either way the 49’ers are in trouble

  3. Did Chip say “fine” kinda like a passive-agressive woman cause that’s how it reads/sounds.

    Ummm.. Because it’s the niners, chip Kelly and kaperchoke. Stop blaming the media, everyone else and not yourself. Like I tell my kids… How your treated is what you earned. If it was tom Brady or Rodgers the media would assume he’s fine. Trump gets bad press because of what he’s said in the past and if your boss is “always on your case” it’s because you earned it. These days everyone is such a victim. Kaperchoke earned his kaperchoke status. If he wants the media to treat him better go out and keep your mouth shut and play well. Simple.

  5. Baalke felt Kap was fine even if he might get traded and that Gab was fine even though he’s a medicore check down king. In Baalke’s fantasy world, all is or will be fine, so he passed on Dak Prescott in the 4th round of the draft and drafted more fine DBs.

    Who could possibly have it better?

    I’m estimating 27-30 teams. That’s who.

  7. What a farce. All chip is doing is keeping his starter out. Gabby is trade bait and always has been. The gm wants kaperdinkmto be the guy and chip knows who writes his checks.

  8. Chip, I know you can’t say it, so I’ll say it for you. Trent Baalke is calling the shots here. I have to say exactly what he wants me to say or he’ll fire me. He’s got Jed wrapped around his finger, and everybody around here is just scratching their heads. But I’m getting paid a lot of money to say what Trent wants me to say, and even if I get fired, I still get paid. So you guys are idiots if you believe one word I’m saying.

    Do seahags fans do anything other than talk trash on 49ers articles? It must suck to always try and make your franchise seem like its important. They will all go back to being Niners fans like they used when they suck again.
