Colin Kaepernick officially set to start against Chargers

Sep 1, 2016 at 4:58 PM--


As expected, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will start tonight's preseason finale against the San Diego Chargers, per head coach Chip Kelly via Alex Flanagan of NFL Network.


All eyes will be on Kaepernick before kickoff. The quarterback has been at the center of a controversy that started when he decided to sit during the pre-game National Anthem. He has been doing so for all of preseason, but it was less obvious during the team's first two exhibition games because Kaepernick did not play nor was he in uniform for those games.

Kaepernick missed the two first preseason games with a muscle issue in his throwing arm – an injury that forced him to miss a portion of training camp as well.

The following players are inactive for tonight's game:

DE Arik Armstead
LB Nick Bellore
QB Blaine Gabbert
WR Quinton Dial
DE Glenn Dorsey
RB Carlos Hyde
CB Keith Reaser
OT Joe Staley
OT John Theus
WR Bryce Treggs

Kickoff is at 7:00 PM PT at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego.

Fred Warner was overwhelmed by over 200 text messages and calls from friends and colleagues on Wednesday when news broke that the San Francisco 49ers were signing him to a massive five-year extension, making him the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL. The newfound riches won't change his attitude, though. Instead, Warner will continue working to earn the respect of his peers and do whatever he can to contribute to the team goal of winning a championship. "My goals and aspirations are always going to be set to the highest standard, higher than anybody else can put on me," Warner told reporters on Thursday. "And that holds true to the season, even before this contract was set and done. My (personal) goals and my goals for this team, they don't change. So that's what's exciting,



Frelund: Return of these two star players set up 49ers for playoff return

Earlier this week, on a Game Theory segment, Cynthia Frelund gave her argument for why the San Francisco 49ers will make the playoffs in 2021 after missing out in 2020. Frelund attributed their recent Super Bowl appearance as a factor in her decision as well as the multitude of injuries that affected the team last season. "They were in the Super Bowl just like five minutes ago and they had a whole bunch of injuries, but they get all those players back." Looking at the offensive side of the ball, Frelund highlighted star tight end George Kittle, who, according to Next Gen Stats, has averaged 8.0 yards after the catch per reception since 2018, which is the highest in the NFL given a minimum of 25 receptions. In addition to Kittle,

Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when the team opens the regular season on September 12 against the Detroit Lions. How long he remains the starter is the question. San Francisco traded up to draft Garoppolo's eventual successor, Trey Lance, at No. 3 overall. He will bring a much different dynamic to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. The inexperienced quarterback just needs time to learn and master the playbook and scheme. We asked our 49ers Webzone contributors to predict when Lance will get his first start. Below are the responses in the order in which they were received.
