The 49ers and head coach Chip Kelly have a quarterback situation on their hands with Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert battling to be the starter.
SANTA CLARA –- Colin Kaepernick is still not cleared to practice, but he is not falling behind in the quarterback competition, 49ers coach Chip Kelly said on Tuesday.
The competition for the 49ers’ starting quarterback job will not truly begin until the team reports to training camp in late-July.
Quarterback Blaine Gabbert is set to compete against Colin Kaepernick for the 49ers’ starting job this season.
Free agency and the 2016 NFL Draft have passed, and Colin Kaepernick remains on the 49ers roster.
