San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly stated on Friday that Colin Kaepernick will be limited during today's join-practice with the Houston Texans due to "arm fatigue" and a sore throwing shoulder. That means that he will be unlikely to participate in team drills. Kelly stated that an MRI would not be necessary.

Kaepernick also did not take part in team drills during Thursday's practice. The team called it a "planned day of rest" for the quarterback.

Kaepernick is involved in a quarterback competition with Blaine Gabbert, who received the majority of the reps on Thursday and will get the majority again on Friday. Prior to Thursday, Kaepernick and Gabbert were receiving a relatively equal share of reps during training camp practices.

The 49ers have not yet named a starter for Sunday's exhibition opener against the Houston Texans. They are expected to make a decision sometime following the team's joint-practice.

Kaepernick was one of the players that was scheduled to meet with the media following Friday's practice. It is unknown if that will still occur.
