Chip Kelly says Kaepernick will be limited, talks Texans practice

Aug 12, 2016 at 10:43 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media prior to the team's joint-practice with the Houston Texans on Friday. Here are just a few of the topics that he touched on.

Colin Kaepernick will be limited


Colin Kaepernick will be limited during practice due to "arm fatigue" and a sore throwing shoulder. Kelly hopes that he will be available to play on Sunday during the team's exhibition opener against the Texans. "We're going to keep a good eye on him today," said Kelly.

Kelly went on to say that yesterday's planned day of rest for Kaepernick was just to help get his arm back up to where they can use him every day. Kaepernick was recovering from multiple surgeries during the majority of the team's offseason program. No MRI will be necessary.

Kelly went on to say that Kaepernick did not really miss a step during his missed practice time earlier in the offseason. He worked hard and studied hard to make sure he was up to speed. "There's timing issues and things like that that you'll miss because you're not getting the physical aspect of it, but from a mental aspect, he's been on top of it," said Kelly.

Practice with the Texans


Everything is scripted out for the 49ers joint-practice with the Texans. All of the coordinators have discussed what they need to look for within the script. "There's a lot cooperation that goes on in these types of practices," said Kelly.

Kelly stated that he loves these joint-practices, stating that they already had one planned with the Denver Broncos. Then when the preseason schedule was released, they organized the one with the Texans.

Regarding tempo, Kelly stated that there will be huddle portions and no-huddle portions of today's practice.

Blaine Gabbert


Blaine Gabbert has done a great job learning the terminology of Chip Kelly's offense. Kelly stated that he has been through a lot of systems and that has certainly helped him adapt. "The one thing about Blaine that has stood out is his intelligence," said Kelly.

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

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 3 contest against the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The 49ers lost defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas for the season. Both suffered ACL injuries in a span of three plays against the New York Jets. The good news is that tight end George Kittle returned to practice on Wednesday after missing Week 2 with a sprained MCL and bone bruise, per ESPN. He was limited, though. San Francisco is unlikely to have its two top running backs — Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman — on Sunday. Mostert's MCL sprain isn't expected to lead to an

George Kittle could play vs. Jets even if he doesn't practice, says 49ers' Kyle Shanahan

A San Francisco 49ers player rarely suits up for a game without practicing during the days leading up to that game. George Kittle is a rare tight end, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan confirmed that Kittle wouldn't practice Wednesday or Thursday. The tight end may not practice until Friday, and even that is not a certainty. That doesn't mean the New York Jets won't have to game plan for him, though. "Kittle, he's battling," Shanahan told reporters before Wednesday's practice. "We thought it would be alright. He woke up the next day a little sore. He fully expects to be there Sunday, like he always does. Just like he always plays through the game when it happens." Kittle suffered a knee sprain on a hit from safety Budda Baker during Sunday's loss to
