Draft Scout Colin Kaepernick News
01/05/16 - QB Colin Kaepernick divulged Monday that he's been diagnosed with a torn ligament in his right thumb. Surgery is a possibility. Kaepernick finished the season on injured reserve after undergoing surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
11/21/15 - QB Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) was placed on reserve/injured by the 49ers Saturday (Nov. 21).
11/11/15 - QB Colin Kaepernick has accepted the decision to change quarterbacks and stick with QB Blaine Gabbert a second week, coach Jim Tomsula said Tuesday. "Colin has handled it just unbelievably," Tomsula insisted on his weekly radio show on KNBR-680 in San Francisco.
11/04/15 - QB Colin Kaepernick was benched in favor of QB Blaine Gabbert for Sunday's game against Atlanta. Kaepernick compiled a 78.8 passer rating in the 49ers' first eight games, just the 25th-best rating among NFL quarterbacks with 100 or more passes this season.
11/03/15 - QB Blaine Gabbert is starting for the San Francisco 49ers this week, a move that sends former Pro-Bowl passer Colin Kaepernick to the bench along with his $10.4 million salary.
Kaepernick, a second-round pick in 2011, would cost the team more than $20 million in dead money if he's released.
Reports of turmoil in the locker room and Kaepernick putting himself "on an island" around teammates by wearing headphones in group settings and not embracing group outings began two weeks ago.
Head coach Jim Tomsula did not announce the quarterback switch in his Monday press conference, but hinted that some changes might be made. When asked whether Kaepernick would remain the starter, he said, "We're evaluating everything right now. We're in the middle of it right now, and I don't have any comments on any position on our field right now. We're evaluating everyone."
Gabbert was a first-round pick in 2011 with the Jacksonville Jaguars. In his second season with San Francisco, he attempted just seven passes, completing three, in 2014.
He started three games for Jacksonville in 2013, and the Jaguars lost all three. Gabbert was 1-9 as the Jaguars' starter in 2012 and 4-10 in 2011. He has never had a passer rating better than 77.4, which he achieved in 2012.
