Colin Kaepernick on the sidelines during game against Rams

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.

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

Kyle Shanahan would have liked to look into the possibility of adding Matthew Stafford this offseason. He was shocked by how quickly the deal between the Detroit Lions and the Las Angeles Rams went down. As a result, Shanahan never got a chance to get his team into the mix. "I was trying to get involved in it," Shanahan shared earlier this month, sharing that he thought he had more time to do so. But it was too late. The trade was on its way to being completed. Now, Stafford is in the NFC West, and the San Francisco 49ers will have to face the veteran quarterback twice a season. News of the trade was shocking to many, especially those within
