49ers QB Colin Kaepernick resumes throwing during practice

But we don't want to throw him back out there and then have a setback right now.

The 49ers have been cautious with Kaepernick after he said there was "tightness" in his shoulder, which required surgery in the offseason. Kaepernick threw around 45 passes - including a number of passes of 25 yards. "Whenever we're out there, we're playing our tails off until he tells us to come out". Some reports called it a "dead arm" and said he could be out for weeks trying to get it back on track.

For the past week, San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick has been held out of practice with a shoulder/arm issue. "I'll be on the field sooner or later".

Meanwhile, Blaine Gabbert is taking the majority of the first-team reps and establishing himself as the frontrunner in the competition.

Davis (6-5, 323) lined up at right guard for the first two snaps of team drills, and his self-described "sweet" cameo consisted of eight snaps.

"I'm an athlete. I can play right tackle or anywhere on the line", Davis said. "But we're going to be very smart in how that's done". He's a giant man.

Brown, a seventh-round draft pick past year, started the final two games his rookie season. "So we want to err on the side of caution and make sure he's 100-percent as we get rolling here". Another option is Joshua Garnett, a first-round draft pick who's been backing up Zane Beadles at left guard.

Kelly said the plan outlined by the team's medical staff in consultation with Kaepernick called for the quarterback to ramp up his practice participation next week with the notion of getting playing time in the team's third exhibition at home against Green Bay on August 26.

In March, Kaepernick visited with Broncos general manager John Elway and coach Gary Kubiak.

- DeAndrew White and Bryce Treggs saw a lot of action, especially as slot receivers, while Bruce Ellington remained out of team drills with a sprained ankle. Coach (Kelly) will decide that here later this week.

"Charles can do whatever he wants", Kelly answered. "Obviously, if we get him in the game Saturday, it will be limited in terms of, 'What do you feel real comfortable throwing?"

We've written plenty about this position battle by the Bay, but the reality is simple: If Kaepernick is healthy - and not being stashed away - he'll eventually play.
