Colin Kaepernick resumes throwing in practice

Aug 22, 2016 at 11:03 AM--


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.

He did not participate in team drills today, and the team will continue to ease him into on-field work. Nick Bosa, who missed most of last season due to a torn ACL, looks leaner. The pass



Javon Kinlaw limited in practice as 49ers defender returns from knee issue

Defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw was among the players not on the field for team drills when the San Francisco 49ers conducted their first training camp practice earlier today. The team plans to ease him back into a normal workload after the second-year defender underwent multiple procedures on his knee this offseason. Kinlaw had what was described as a "clean-up procedure" performed on his knee following last season. More recently, he underwent a minor procedure to reduce some swelling in the knee. Unfortunately, that limited what he could do during practice today. "He had, traveling and stuff like a month ago or something, [his knee] just swelled up a little bit," Shanahan told reporters after practice. "I don't know whether they drained it or not. I'll get it



Watch 49ers rookie Trey Lance fire up the crowd before practice

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan regretted not having a rookie player fire up the crowd during the first training camp practice this week. The team has tasked a rookie with doing so in previous years. Obviously, not last year, as no fans were in the stands for practices. "We usually do a rookie hype machine, and I feel like I didn't see it out there today," Shanahan told reporters yesterday. "So I was kind of disappointed with that. I'll get that corrected later today, but it was definitely different (seeing fans again). And I'm so pumped to see it in the stadium." Shanahan did get it corrected. Rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the 49ers' first-round pick, was the one out there getting fans fired up before today's practice — the
