Colin Kaepernick is dealing with a shoulder issue that Adam Schefter has reported as a, "dead arm." He appears to have fallen behind Blaine Gabbert as the 49ers starter, but it is unclear how much of that is due to his health issues. A preseason start from Kaepernick would go a long ways towards clearing up this depth-chart murkiness.

49ers | QB competition still open in San Francisco (Sat Aug 27, 07:48 PM) - San Francisco QB Blaine Gabbert and QB Colin Kaepernick are still competing for the starting job, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Our View: It may be open, but Gabbert is in the lead. Kaepernick had three offseason surgeries, and he's spent a majority of the time this year recovering from those procedures. Gabbert isn't great, but he's better than a banged up Kaepernick.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick has quiet performance (Sat Aug 27, 08:38 AM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick went 2-for-6 for 14 yards in the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26. He also rushed for 18 yards on four carries. Kaepernick said he believes he still has a chance to win the starting quarterback job.

Our View: Kaepernick didn't do himself any favors in the competition for starting QB. Blaine Gabbert is still entrenched as the early-season starter (in our opinion), and Kaepernick is still trying to get his game back on track.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick may start Friday (Fri Aug 26, 04:19 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) could start the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, since QB Blaine Gabbert started the first two preseason games.

Our View: The 49ers appear reluctant to anoint Gabbert the starter, so if Kaepernick is functional, he could win this job. It would be better for the 49ers running game, but Kaepernick took all the wind out of the sails of the passing game last year.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick set to debut Friday (Wed Aug 24, 01:13 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) is 'on track' to play against the Green Bay Packers Friday, Aug. 26, according to head coach Chip Kelly.

Our View: Well alright, it's time to see if Kaepernick can put himself back in the QB competition with Blaine Gabbert. If healthy, it seems like Kaepernick would be a good fit for the 49ers offense under Kelly. However, three offseason surgeries have held him back to this point. We'll see what Kaepernick can do in his 2016 preseason debut.

49ers | Colin Kaepernick back at practice (Mon Aug 22, 03:42 PM) - San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick (arm) participated in a full warmup practice Monday, Aug. 22. It was his first such participation since Aug. 10.

Our View: The team has been watching Kaepernick throw on an incredibly limited basis while he's been out. It's the recovery process that needs work for Kaepernick. He'll be able to throw, but his soreness over the next few days will determine whether or not he can continue throwing. Blaine Gabbert is the clear-cut starter while Kaepernick is banged up.
