Colin Kaepernick threw in front of the media during the warm-up portion of practice Monday morning. According to players, he also threw during 7-on-7 and 11-on-11 team drills when the media was not allowed to watch.
Cornerback Jimmie Ward told reporters Kaepernick made “some good throws today,” including a deep completion to slot receiver Bruce Ellington.
“You’ve got to get used to that cannon,” Ellington said while standing at his locker. “Kap’s arm is still strong and he’s still throwing it in the right direction.”
Kaepernick made a brief appearance in the locker room after practice and said his arm feels fine. For what’s it worth, he seemed genuinely pleased to see the media for the first time in his professional career, although he didn’t say much. He made casual conversation as he lay on the floor and massaged his lower back with a softball.
What do you make of all this? What do you expect from Kaepernick this week? Big week for him.
