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.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan said this week that he hopes Kittle can practice on Friday, but even if he can't, that doesn't necessarily rule him out for Sunday's game. Defensive end Dee Ford also did not practice. The injury report notes that it was due to a neck injury. The pass rusher was a full participant on Wednesday. Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon (concussion) returned to practice, albeit in a blue no-contact jersey. He is in the concussion protocol. The 49ers will be without starter Richard Sherman for the next

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters before Wednesday's practice and provided some good news regarding George Kittle. The All-Pro tight end will return to practice after sustaining an MCL sprain during Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals and missing this past weekend's matchup against the New York Jets. He is, however, expected to be limited. Kittle's status for Sunday's game against the New York Giants will be dependent on how he looks during practices this week. Shanahan also noted that running back Tevin Coleman's knee sprain is more severe than Raheem Mostert's knee injury. While Mostert may miss this weekend's game, he is not expected to miss an extended period. Shanahan says Coleman could miss four weeks, though, and that the

San Francisco 49ers fans got a scare on Sunday when All-Pro tight end George Kittle appeared to suffer a knee or leg injury late in the second quarter of the team's matchup against the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. The good news is that Kittle was back on the field during the 49ers' first offensive drive of the second half. Kittle was hit by Cardinals safety Budda Baker after a high pass by quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo bounced off his hands on the 49ers' final drive of the first half. He was able to walk off on his own, went to the sideline, and had his left leg examined by medical staff. The 49ers star exited for the locker room before his teammates and was accompanied by team doctor Tim McAdams. Kittle signed a massive five-year
