Kaepernick gets starting job back with 49ers
The 49ers are putting their future back into Colin Kaepernick’s hands. Coach Chip Kelly announced the decision to bench Blaine Gabbert and to give back the starting job that Kaepernick lost last season.
Colin Kaepernick will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers this week against the Buffalo Bills.
Coach Chip Kelly announced the decision Tuesday to bench Blaine Gabbert and give back the job Kaepernick lost midway through last season.
Kaepernick has only played briefly in the opener but has generated attention with his refusal to stand for the national anthem.
“We were very analytical and sat down as a staff and watched tape and went over everything,” said Kelly. “We’ve had a couple days to digest everything where we are. I think offensively, we just need to be better and we just need to make a move.”
