The San Francisco 49ers just announced they’ve placed quarterback Colin Kaepernick on season-ending Injured Reserve, and have promoted quarterback Dylan Thompson from the practice squad to the active roster.
Kaepernick apparently injured his non-throwing shoulder Week 4 against the Green Bay Packers, although the injury didn’t show up on the 49ers’ practice report until this Friday. Strange.
Kaepernick almost certainly won’t play another game for the 49ers–they probably will trade Kaepernick for a draft pick during the offseason.
Goodbye, Colin. We hardly knew you.
