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.

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The 49ers held a light practice on Wednesday, a precaution given the quick turnaround from Monday night's game in Mexico City against the Arizona Cardinals. The team didn't arrive back in the Bay Area until 6:15 a.m. on Tuesday and pushed the start time for Wednesday's practice back to 4:03 p.m. "We're starting a lot later, and we'll just walk-through today," head coach Kyle Shanahan said before practice. "And we've got to mix in Thanksgiving a little bit on Thursday, so we'll dial things back a little bit for that also." Wednesday's practice took place inside Levi's Stadium, something that doesn't

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 12 contest against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. The media did not have access to watch the Thanksgiving practice. The team gave them the day off due to the holiday. That means there are no observations to report from the Thursday session, which was a lighter walk-through. Reporters will return to watch the last practice of the week, which begins on Friday at 12:18 p.m. PT. On Wednesday, the 49ers were without defensive lineman Arik Armstead, and wide receiver Deebo Samuel and defensive end Samson Ebukam were limited. That remained the case on Thursday. Tackle Trent Williams returned from his veteran day off. Below are Thursday's



49ers Notebook: Shanahan talks Saints, 2nd-half shutouts, rushing attack; Ryans on teammates helping Bosa

The San Francisco 49ers have won three consecutive games and are probably feeling pretty good heading into their Week 12 matchup against the New Orleans Saints. No one is overlooking the 4-7 team, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has been impressed with New Orleans' defense, understanding that the 49ers' seventh win of the season won't come easy. "Just starting with their defense, they look like a [Saints head coach] Dennis Allen team," Shanahan said. "They've been, to me, one of the best defenses in the league here over the last five or six years. I don't think their numbers are quite there as they usually are, but I think a lot of that has to do with they've been missing about seven starters a number of these games. But they are as tough, and physical, and as sound as



'Mission Accomplished': 49ers defense talks shutting down Saints, RB Alvin Kamara

The San Francisco 49ers defense came into Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints having shut out three consecutive teams in the third and fourth quarters of their last three wins. On Sunday they took it to another level, shutting out the Saints for all four quarters in a 13-0 win that gave the 49ers their fourth victory in a row. The performance came at the right time for the 49ers offense, which faced a tough task against a stout Saints defense and wasn't running on all cylinders the way they were in their previous win, a dominant 38-10 showing over the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico last Monday. But 13 points was more than enough on this day for the 49ers defense, who held the Saints to 260 yards of total offense and just 63 yards on the ground in front of a home crowd
