Colin Kaepernick on the sidelines during game against Rams

Jan 3, 2016 at 1:58 PM--


There was a little bit of controversy earlier in the season when it was reported that San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick would not be allowed on the sidelines during a home game. Head coach Jim Tomsula later stated that the decision on players being allowed on the sidelines is completely up to the medical staff. If they feel that the player may be at risk on the sidelines, then he is not allowed to be there. However, players are often allowed to be on the field during pregame warmups.

During today's home game at Levi's Stadium against the St. Louis Rams, not only was Kaepernick on the field during the pregame, but he was shown on the sidelines during the game itself by the CBS broadcast.


Along with his head coach, Kaepernick's future with the team has been a big question mark as the 49ers season comes to a close. While the 49ers have said that he fits into the team's future plans, others have suggested that San Francisco might be willing to trade him.

Earlier this season, Kaepernick was benched for QB Blaine Gabbert before being placed on injured reserve with a torn labrum in his left shoulder.

Linebacker Fred Warner was a pleasant surprise for San Francisco 49ers fans coming out of the 2018 draft. He immediately showed flashes of what he could be during his rookie campaign, leading the defense in tackles not only then but in each of his three NFL seasons. After spending some time with Warner, the 49ers immediately knew that he might be someone special. They were already impressed with his on-field play at BYU. What sealed the deal in their minds was getting to know the person. Once again, there won't be pre-draft visits this year. As was the case last year, all interviews will be conducted virtually over Zoom or FaceTime. It's unfortunate because those 30 allotted visits can be a great tool in evaluating an incoming rookie. Of course, given the current

It's been the better part of a decade since Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick were part of the same quarterback room with the San Francisco 49ers, but Smith still sounds as impressed as ever with what he experienced on and off the field when the two of them were teammates. Smith spoke for almost an hour this week on Kaepernick and a number of other subjects during a guest spot on the 10 Questions With Kyle Brandt Podcast (click here to listen). Smith, who was the starting quarterback for the 49ers when Kaepernick was selected in Round 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft, told Brandt he remembered Kaepernick as a "great dude" who brought an impressive work ethic to the NFL right out of the gate.

NBC Sports' Peter King offered some scheduling insight into what will likely be a 17-game season in 2021. The NFL continues negotiations with broadcast partners on a new television deal, and the networks and league are working on the assumption that the regular season will increase by one game. Until now, there has been speculation on where those 17th games will take place. We already knew that each NFC West team would be matched up against the AFC North opponent with the same spot in its standings from this past season. That means the San Francisco 49ers taking on the last-place Cincinnati Bengals in 2021. King is hearing that the AFC will be hosting all 16 of the
