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.

Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo has looked good in practice, is expected to help 49ers vs. Rams

Head coach Kyle Shanahan sounds confident that Jimmy Garoppolo's next outing will be better than his last. Hindered by his ankle injury, the quarterback was pulled after two quarters this past Sunday in the Niners' embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins. "Jimmy threw it good in warmups. He threw it good on the Thursday and Friday of practice (last week)," Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "But when you do have a high-ankle sprain, that [can] come back in a game. And he got sacked a few times before that, and he started to throw it a little bit differently. You could tell it was affecting him a little bit. That's why I do think it affected a number of his throws after that. "And the way the game was going, and when I could
