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.

The San Francisco 49ers' only road game of the preseason is a trip to the Los Angeles area on August 22 to play the Chargers at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.

PFF names QB among three 49ers training camp battles to watch

It's almost too easy to name the quarterback competition among the upcoming San Francisco 49ers training camp battles to watch. With players set to report to the team's facilities in Santa Clara next week, a lot of eyes will be focused on observing the progress of the No. 3 overall pick — quarterback Trey Lance. Should it be among the most intriguing competitions, though? San Francisco's brass has repeatedly stated that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter come Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in his veteran quarterback. His availability, not his ability, has always been the concern. That doesn't mean the rookie won't try to prove himself a quick study and unseat Garoppolo. "I definitely see it as Jimmy's the

'This is the best that I've felt physically': 49ers WR Mohamed Sanu ready for training camp competition

Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is entering his 10th NFL season and hopes to climb the San Francisco 49ers depth chart during training camp, which kicks off this week. Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel figure to be the starters come Week 1. The spots behind them are up for grabs. Sanu's experience may give him an edge, though, when it comes to the No. 3 job. The veteran wideout is already familiar with the offense. He played for head coach Kyle Shanahan, then an offensive coordinator, for a season in Atlanta. That helps. Sanu was briefly with San Francisco last year, appearing in three games but hauling in only one catch for nine yards. He spent the remainder of the season with the Detroit Lions before rejoining the 49ers at the end of March. Sanu says he
