49ers Turn to Controversial Colin Kaepernick at QB
Colin Kaepernick will be taking time out from his social engineering project to see if he can engineer some offence for the San Francisco 49ers.
Coach Chip Kelly said Tuesday that Kaepernick would return as starting quarterback, replacing Blaine Gabbert.
It is just one of the seat changes in a game of musical chairs by quarterbacks; with Cam Newton getting closer to returning from a concussion Sunday, Tony Romo getting the thumbs up for his return, the Browns ditching Charlie Whitehurst for a sixth quarterback candidate and Carson Palmer getting the OK to return from concussion protocol.
In Denver, interim head coach Joe DeCamillis said Trevor Siemian was a limited participant in Tuesday’s practice. With a game Thursday, Siemian said his left shoulder has recovered and he is “expecting to play.”
Kaepernick has been hearing “We Want Kap!” chants in recent weeks with Gabbert going from promising, to ineffective, to awful as the 49ers record sunk to 1-4.
