Colin Kaepernick will be limited during joint-practice with Texans

Aug 12, 2016 at 10:13 AM--


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.

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10

Will 49ers Jimmy Garoppolo practice once he's cleared?

By Marc Adams
May 18

Now that the Deebo Samuel drama is currently in hibernation, and the "Trey Lance isn't ready" tour has slowed some, Jimmy Garoppolo is back in the headlines. Not for any reason other than it's Jimmy Garoppolo. I know, I know. You're sick of hearing his name. Trust me. I'm sick of hearing it and spelling it. But until the San Francisco 49ers trade Garoppolo, name him the starter, declare that Lance is the starter or decree that the beginning of training camp will be the dawning of a new era in the 49ers' quarterback room, we will continue to hear about him. So until there is a mutual parting of the ways, writers will write about him, content creators will talk about him, reporters will continue to speculate, and the national media will continue to make things
