Gabbert and Kaepernick talk QB competition

Jul 31, 2016 at 1:02 PM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick both spent time following the team's first practice of training camp on Sunday to speak with the media. Of course, much of the discussion focused around the quarterback competition that the two are involved in.

"This is not my first quarterback competition and it definitely won't be my last," Gabbert said during his time at the podium.

Kaepernick stated that it felt good to be back on the field, to get into the offense and get comfortable with it. "I think a lot of the mental reps that I took in the spring really helped me today and helped me during minicamp," said Kaepernick. "It's another chance to compete."

"Best man is going to get the job regardless," said Gabbert. "Dwelling on it is not going to do any good."


Kaepernick also discussed the process of regaining his weight following his rehab from surgery and was asked where he is now. "Right where it needs to be," answered Kaepernick. "Feel good. Feels great to compete. Excited for what's to come."

Kaepernick went on to say that there was a lot of weight that he needed to get back and a lot of mobility that he needed to keep, but that he feels ready to go now. "I don't look like my high school self anymore," Kaepernick joked.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Mohammed Sanu, barring any complications, should join his new teammates tomorrow and practice with them for the first time since signing a one-year deal earlier this week. Tomorrow's practice will just be a walk-through. Typically, missing each full practice in the days preceding a game would reduce a player's chances of playing — especially a new player. Sanu, however, is familiar with head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense, having played within it during his time with the Atlanta Falcons. That, combined with the injury concerns at the position, could mean fans get to see Sanu out on the field against the New York

The San Francisco 49ers have released the list of inactive players for their Week 2 matchup at home against the New York Jets. These players will not suit up for Sunday's game. NFL teams can each have 48 players active on game days. This season, each can promote one or two players from the practice squad up to 90 minutes before kickoff, potentially increasing the active roster up to 55 players. After the game, any elevated player will revert back to the practice squad without having to go through waivers. Teams can do this twice with each player before subjecting him to waivers first. Among the inactives are tight end George Kittle and pass rusher Dee Ford, who were both ruled out for the game. Kittle is dealing with an MCL sprain and bone bruise,
