Colin Kaepernick resumes throwing in practice

Colin Kaepernick, attempting to get ready to play against the Green Bay Packers on Friday and climb back into the San Francisco 49ers quarterback competition with Blaine Gabbert, resumed throwing today during the team's practice. At least, that was the case during warmups and prior to media access ending – so it is not yet known if he will participate in team drills.


The coaching staff has stated that they would like to try and "ease" Kaepernick back into practices this week in an effort to get him ready to play Friday.

Prior to Saturday's victory over the Denver Broncos, Kaepernick was seen on the field about two hours before kickoff. He reportedly threw over 50 passes, varying in distance, in about a 30-minute window.

On Sunday, head coach Chip Kelly was asked how the quarterback felt following that throwing session. "I think Kap is fine," Kelly answered. "I saw Kap. He's fine."


Kelly went on to say that Kaepernick would "throw some more" in practice today, but did not specify if it would be in team drills. "I don't know that," said Kelly. "We'll see how it goes when he gets out there and starts throwing. So, don't put me and say I said this. I don't know. He's going to start throwing tomorrow and we'll see how it goes, see how he progresses."

Kaepernick has not played in a game – regular season or otherwise – since November 1, 2015. He has not fully practiced since August 10, when his arm fatigue, muscle issue, or whatever the team is choosing to call it, first caused him problems.

Steve Young on keeping the 49ers competitive after paying Brock Purdy

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers are gearing up to elevate quarterback Brock Purdy to their highest-paid player status starting next year. Negotiations for a contract extension with the young signal-caller, entering his third NFL season, are on the horizon. Purdy's on-field performance has far exceeded his current salary. Last season, he set a single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards and led the 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance while earning a base salary of $870,000. Even for the upcoming season, his salary will only bump up to $985,000. That may sound like a lot to the ordinary person, but it is only a fraction of the team's salary cap. However, Purdy's next contract is expected to catapult him into the ranks of the NFL's highest-paid players. That title
