Don’t expect San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick to be throwing passes during practice anytime soon. Just one week after doing so during warmups, it’s been reported by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network that Kap won’t be cleared for the team’s minicamp this week.

Minicamp signals the conclusion of the 49ers off-season program. The team won’t meet up again until training camp, which is set to begin at the end of July.

Kaepernick has been dealing with numerous injuries. From a thumb, knee, to shoulder, Kap has been working hard to nurse himself back to health.

Will Kaepernick be ready to start training camp? You be the judge.

Many of you have generously asked for a place where you can contribute to as a way to show your appreciation for the work we do.

We’ve been reluctant to do it in year’s past but due to our increasing overhead, feel now is the time to start taking you up on those offers, as we continue to grow.

Thank you all for the continued love and support. We wouldn’t be here without you! Go 49ers
