North Bay Nugget - - SPORTS -

Santa clara, calif. — the San Fran­cisco 49ers are apol­o­giz­ing for ini­tially leav­ing colin Kaeper­nick out of a photo gallery cel­e­brat­ing the team’s his­tory against the green bay Pack­ers.

the team posted dozens of pho­tos on its web­site of past games against the Pack­ers be­fore the teams meet again Mon­day night with­out ini­tially in­clud­ing any of Kaeper­nick.

the 49ers say in a state­ment that “un­for­tu­nately there were a hand­ful of ob­vi­ous misses in this gallery” and “we ap­pre­ci­ate them be­ing brought to our at­ten­tion.” Kaeper­nick set an NFL record for quar­ter­backs by rush­ing for 181 yards in a play­off win against green bay on Jan. 12, 2013. he threw for 413 yards in a sea­son-open­ing win against the Pack­ers in 2013, and led a win­ning drive to win a play­off game in green bay on Jan. 5, 2014.

the team later added pho­tos of Kaeper­nick to the gallery. this is the first photo gallery the team has run this year but pic­tures of Kaeper­nick were in­cluded in all seven photo gal­leries posted on the web­site last year.
