Golden Nuggets: Kap still isn’t throwing

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Thursday, August 18th, 2016

Well, another day of training camp, but this brought some interesting, uh...incidents. For one thing, the San Francisco 49ers and the Denver Broncos don’t play nice. There were a few scuffles that broke out according to reports. It doesn’t sound anything like the Bears/Patriots brawl that happened a few days ago, but there was a bit of chippiness going on.

Despite the interesting stuff, some things are still the same: Colin Kaepernick isn’t throwing. He dressed down in pads today and threw on the sidelines, but wasn’t doing much in team drills with that arm of his. Not like he really needs to. While Gabbert may have a leg up with being able to run things while Kaepernick rehabbed, if he keeps throwing like we saw in the first preseason game, it’s not going to be too hard for Kaepernick to trump him and take the starting job.

Also, Trent Baalke spoke to the media for about an hour. There hasn’t been a transcript made, but I tried to group everything pertaining to what he said under one banner. I really suggest giving those a read, as Baalke hits on a variety of questions that have been asked during training camp. While some of it is filler, other things, like Anthony Davis impacting the draft, are very interesting.
