Colin Kaepernick will likely make the 49ers’ final roster

Sep 2, 2016 at 12:53 PM--


Numerous sources are reporting that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is likely to make the team's final roster.


On Thursday, Kaepernick played during the 49ers' preseason finale against the Chargers in San Diego while Blaine Gabbert sat. Amid boos from the crowd during the Chargers' "Salute to the Military" night, Kaepernick led a touchdown drive during the 49ers' opening possession. He finished the night 11 of 18 for 103 yards passing and 38 yards rushing on four carries.

There was some speculation that Kaepernick might be a roster casualty, even if the team decided to keep three quarterbacks. A muscle issue in his throwing arm prevented Kaepernick from playing in the 49ers' first two preseason games, but he participated in the team's final two and started against San Diego.

Head coach Chip Kelly stated that the team would not announce any roster cuts until Saturday, the day of the deadline for NFL teams to reach the 53-man roster limit. That also seemed to include any of the depth chart decisions for the roster.

Kelly stated that the team would not make any announcements until after the coaching staff had a chance to review the game film from Thursday night and meet with general manager Trent Baalke to discuss the roster.
