Colin Kaepernick done for the season with left-shoulder injury

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.
