Colin Kaepernick returns to throwing passes on the practice field

Jun 2, 2016 at 1:00 PM--


Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports that San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick was seen throwing the football on the practice field for the first time this offseason. Kaepernick, who has not yet been cleared medically to practice with the team, has been limited to throwing with trainers on the side of the practice field.

On the field, he has been seen going through the quarterback motions to stay mentally sharp.


Thursday was the final day of organized team activities for the 49ers. The team will next reconvene for a mandatory minicamp from June 7 through 9.

Earlier today, offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins restated that there is no timetable for Kaepernick to be cleared for practice. That is up to the medical staff and not the coaches.

Kaepernick has been rehabbing from multiple surgeries. He tore a ligament in his throwing hand's thumb during an October 22 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. During his next game, a November 1 matchup against the St. Louis Rams, Kaepernick said that he suffered a bone bruise and cracked cartilage. That game would be his last of the season before being benched in favor of Blaine Gabbert and eventually placed on injured reserve.

Shanahan airs frustration at turnovers, is open to considering Brandon Aiyuk on punt returns

The effort was certainly where it needed to be for the San Francisco 49ers to pull an upset over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, but a series of costly turnovers caused the 49ers to fall short and left head coach Kyle Shanahan with a feeling of missed opportunity. The 49ers were ten-point underdogs coming into the game against the Saints following a 34-17 loss at the hands of the Green Bay Packers on November 5. But while the game against the Packers never felt close, the 49ers were competitive in the 27-13 loss to the Saints and may have even been able to create a different result had they been able to take better care of the football. Instead, the 49ers gave away the ball four times against the Saints, and in the end, the result was what can usually be

Film From the Field House: Suggested Improvements and Evaluations for the 49ers

Nobody likes the always-the-victim mentality. We all know that person and his/her endless tales of woe, discord, and pain. The San Francisco 49ers are not complaining, but they are the unfortunate victim of the never-ending fallout of this rotten year. Indeed, the New York Jets are winless, but the 49ers had the potential to dominate the NFC again this year. As they tormented Odysseus, the fates felt it necessary for the men in scarlet red and gold to suffer. The amount of misfortune that's happened to the 49ers has been entirely out of their control. They cannot control a sticky artificial surface any more than they can prevent a rogue defensive lineman rolling up on quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's foot. There is an upside to the misery.

Film From the Field House: Scripting the San Francisco 49ers' Opening Offense Against the Los Angeles Rams

The San Francisco 49ers are coming off a late-season bye week and still have an outside shot at the playoffs. It's a strange thing to type, considering the men wearing the intersecting letters on their helmets do not resemble a real threat to any opponent. Yet, the 49ers have shown some fight. Against the New Orleans Saints, the 49ers opened the game dominating on both sides of the ball. The offense held the ball for 13:39 minutes, running 23 plays for 83 yards. On the flip side, the 49ers' defense held the Saints to 8 yards in the first quarter. Overall, the defense kept two Saints quarterbacks under 150 yards throwing, and the Saints rush game to 114 yards. Unfortunately, these are small diamonds buried in a constant shovel load of dung. The 49ers
