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.

Now that Trey Lance is a member of the San Francisco 49ers, the question becomes when he'll get his chance to see the field. But for now, Lance doesn't seem to be thinking that far ahead and is instead focusing on getting his feet wet in the Bay Area. In particular, Lance is looking forward to getting to know his teammates, including current starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and learning everything he can about his new team and his new home. Lance spoke to 49ers beat reporters for the first time Thursday night after the team made him the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Lance was asked if he expected a similar situation as the one he experienced in college at North Dakota State, where he spent time on the sidelines before taking over the starting

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York recently spoke with NBC Sports Bay Area and called the team's decision to hold onto Jimmy Garoppolo while drafting his replacement an investment in Trey Lance's future. Basically, that means York had no problem holding onto the veteran quarterback and his hefty salary if it means affording Lance the luxury of sitting, learning, and eventually being better for it. "So, for us, if you invest $25 (million) or $50 million into your rookie to get them ready, then to me, we're investing in the long-term future of our team," York told Matt Maiocco. "And you never want to put somebody out there, especially a guy who you heard the sort of parlance
