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.

49ers hope Brandon Aiyuk's 'great week' of practice carries over to Colts game, says Deebo Samuel

Brandon Aiyuk has certainly been in the spotlight over the 49ers bye week, as his lack of touches on the year has been questioned, given his impressive rookie season. Aiyuk currently has just 15 targets on the year, good for 5th on the team, and only eight of those plays have resulted in a catch. Last year, Aiyuk accumulated 60 receptions, 748 yards, and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three categories while playing in just 12 games. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will return to the field Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and has had the chance to practice with Aiyuk and the first-team offense after being cleared for the calf injury he sustained against the Seattle Seahawks. Amongst that first-team offense is breakout star receiver Deebo

The San Francisco 49ers are getting healthier. Kind of. There are still several missing pieces, like All-Pro tight end George Kittle. But some other pieces are scheduled to return soon. This week, the 49ers opened the practice window for running back JaMycal Hasty, who could be activated off injured reserve in time for this weekend's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Cornerback K'Waun Williams is practicing after missing the last two games due to a calf injury. "It's nice to get Hasty back this week," head coach Kyle Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "He helped us out a lot in those first two games with doing some third-down routes and things like that, and running the ball. "So, getting Hasty back should help
