According to San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula, the plan right now is to let quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the rest of the starters play about a quarter when face the Houston Texans on Saturday at 5 PM Pacific. The game will be played at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
Of course, that estimate could be changed depending on how practices this week go. The 49ers have practices scheduled for later today, tomorrow, and Thursday.
