Colin Kaepernick


As usual, the big story remains the status of Colin Kaepernick. Head coach Chip Kelly announced today that the quarterback would miss his second straight preseason game and will not play against the Broncos. The team hopes to ease him back into practice and get him ready to play against the Green Bay Packers at home next week.

Kaepernick did do some light throwing on a side field during today's practice. Again, he did not participate in any team drills (7-on-7 or 11-on-11) and has not done so since Wednesday, August 10. That was eight days ago.


Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group noted that Kaepernick ended up throwing 47 passes on the side and that he did not appear to show any discomfort.


Injuries


Aside from Kaepernick, WR Bruce Ellington (ankle) did not practice. OLB Aaron Lynch also did not practice. He was poked in the eye during Wednesday's practice.


Quarterbacks


Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee logged Blaine Gabbert as 5 of 9 passing during practice. He said that Gabbert had some nice throws in the red zone. It was a better day of practice for the 49ers than yesterday according to Cam Inman.

Offensive line


OT Anthony Davis got some work with the first-team offensive line. However, it was his debut at right guard and not right tackle where he has been practicing all of training camp. While working with the second-team offensive line, he returned to right tackle.


Wide receivers


Torrey Smith beat CB Aqib Talib twice in a row for medium gains during 7-on-7 drills, per Joe Fann of 49ers Media. "Made one leaping catch near the sideline through a hold," said Fann.

Miscellaneous


For the second day in a row, things got a bit heated between the 49ers and the Broncos. A few fights broke out at practice today. One was OG Zane Beadles against DE Adam Gotsis. Another had C James Ferentz punching NT Garrison Smith.

Vernon Davis explains why the 49ers were able to turn things around in 2011

By Al Sacco

It's no secret that the early 2000's weren't exactly a high point in the history of the San Francisco 49ers. From 2003-2010 the once dominant franchise won just 46 games and didn't have a single winning season. Then, in 2011, something changed. On the surface, the hiring of Jim Harbaugh seemed to make all the difference. The Niners went 13-3 in 2011 and ultimately made three NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl with him at the helm. Harbaugh left little doubt that he was an elite head coach, but the team was also full of talented players who were still hitting their stride upon his arrival. Vernon Davis was one of those players. The Pro Bowl tight end ranks seventh all-time in franchise history in receiving yards (5,640) and fourth in receiving touchdowns
