Colin Kaepernick: “I’m going to go out, show everything I can these next two games”

Aug 24, 2016 at 1:28 PM--


San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick met with the media following practice today. Beat writer Ryan Sakamoto of Niner Fans posted some videos of the interview on Twitter.

"It's great to be back out there," said Kaepernick. "It's great to be back practicing with my teammates, getting ready for this next game."

Kaepernick returned to practicing fully with his teammates this week. He had been dealing with a muscle issue in his throwing shoulder since August 10, which was also the last time he had practiced fully. Kaepernick was asked about his shoulder and if there have been any issues with it.

"Yeah, everything's been going great," said Kaepernick. "Everything's been going as planned so excited to get out there this Friday."

"When I go out there though, I'll be ready to compete and to compete as long as (head coach Chip Kelly) lets me," said Kaepernick when asked about how much action he would like to see on Friday if he gets to play.

Kaepernick was asked if he still believes that he has a fair shot to win the quarterback competition. "Yeah, most definitely," he said. "I mean, I'm going to go out, show everything I can these next two games and make sure I put my best foot forward to show this organization, this team, this coaching staff what I'm capable of."

Kaepernick went on to say that he is still working to get his tinted visor approved by the league. However, it is his understanding that he will be able to use it in Friday's preseason game if he plays.

He was asked if the team treated his injury fairly. "Once again, I'm not getting into all of the specifics or anything like that," answered Kaepernick. "We're focusing on football and my focus right now is this game on Friday."




When asked to characterize the conversation that he had with general manager Trent Baalke, Kaepernick simply stated, "It was a conversation." Baalke had previously described it as a "good conversation." In regards to his relationship with his general manager, Kaepernick said, "We have a business relationship. That's the point where we're at."

San Francisco 49ers players looked like they were saying farewell to DeMeco Ryans after the team's 31-7 defeat in the NFC Championship Game. The defensive coordinator is a top candidate for head-coaching jobs. After Sunday's game, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Ryans is expected to become the Houston Texans' next coach, assuming this week's second interview goes well. The fact that Ryans may have coached the 49ers defense for the last time finally hit players in the locker room at Lincoln Financial Field after their season ended. "I hadn't thought about it up to this point because obviously you think you're going to win it all," linebacker Fred

The 49ers' 2022 Season Has Officially Been Ruled 'Out' - SF 7, Philadelphia 31

It wasn't supposed to end like this. But in the end, what did you expect? This is who the 49ers are. Not a bad team, no. God, no. If that's what you think after watching an NFFCG collapse, I humbly request you consider this game tomorrow. A week from now. With a bit of distance, tracing the arc of the whole season. That still doesn't change the fact that this game was ugly. It was horrific. No, it was worse - a farce. This was Kyle Shanahan trying to bluff an invading army with a tea party out in the open. There's no blame to be laid at his feet here. Maybe against another army, a team less consistently aggressive and outside of its home turf. It's just not a strategy that works against Nick Sirianni's Eagles. Playoff football is a game of
