49ers | Colin Kaepernick not falling behind (Tue May 17, 03:35 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) is not falling behind QB Blaine Gabbert despite still rehabilitating his injuries, according to head coach Chip Kelly. '[Kaepernick] has a great grasp of what we're doing,' Kelly said. 'I'm really impressed by both [Gabbert] and him and their intelligence and being able to pick up what we're trying to do.'

Our View: We're not so sure about that. The Kelly offense isn't overly complex, but getting into a rhythm within the system is a must...and Kaepernick isn't healthy enough to do that just yet. We see Gabbert as the uninspiring front-runner in this competition. Kelly said he hasn't set a timetable for when the starter will be announced.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick working hard (Tue May 17, 01:02 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) has made a good first impression with his work ethic to the new coaching staff, despite asking for a trade earlier in the offseason. He could wind up starting in Week 1. 'Works his butt off in rehab, great with the coaches, learning the offense quickly, I like him a lot,' one coach said.

Our View: Kaepernick is recovering from three offseason surgeries, and he's lost some weight in the process. He needs to bulk back up and win the starting job in the new Chip Kelly system. His main competition is veteran Blaine Gabbert. Like Kaepernick, Gabbert has the athleticism to fit in the Kelly offense but he needs to improve his play under pressure. No matter how this shakes out, the 49ers have one of the worst QB situations in the league.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick to compete when healthy (Sat May 14, 08:27 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) will compete with QB Blaine Gabbert for the starting quarterback job once training camp begins and Kaepernick is closer to full strength, head coach Chip Kelly said.

Our View: Gabbert has a good head start on Kaepernick, and it may be difficult for him to catch up. Not only does Kaepernick have to get healthy after three offseason surgeries, he also needs to put more weight on. Recent pictures of Kaeperncik show that he's really thin right now compared to his previous physique. Add in the fact that some think Kaepernick doesn't want to be there and we think this is looking more and more like Gabbert's job.

49ers | San Francisco not ready to name QB (Fri May 13, 04:39 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) and QB Blaine Gabbert are expected to compete for the starting quarterback job during training camp, and head coach Chip Kelly said he has no idea who the starting quarterback will be in 2016.

Our View: Gabbert has to be considered the frontrunner as of right now. Kaepernick is recovering from three surgeries, and he may not be near full strength until training camp. There's also the question of whether or not Kaepernick even wants to be in San Francisco after nearly getting traded to the Broncos earlier this year.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick not cleared yet (Fri May 13, 04:17 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder, thumb, knee) has not been cleared to fully participate in offseason workouts at this point but may be able to participate during the mandatory minicamp in June.

Our View: Kaepernick is recovering from three surgeries, and he may not be at full strength until training camp hits. Some thought he would get traded before the draft, but now it looks like he's going to compete with Blaine Gabbert for the starting job with the 49ers.
