There is still not a timetable for quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s return to the San Francisco 49ers after his surgeries this off-season, reports NFL Media’s Kevin Patra.
“I have no idea,” offensive coordinator Curtis Modkins said when asked when the signal caller will be ready to practice. “We as coaches, our jobs are to coach who’s out there on the field practicing. Whenever they say Colin’s healthy, I’m sure he’ll be there. He’s around us, he’s in the meetings, he’s doing a great job. It’s not up to me when he’s released, so we’ll see.”
Kaepernick underwent surgeries on his right thumb and his left knee in January after previously undergoing left shoulder surgery to repair a torn labrum in November.
He has attended workouts since the start of San Francisco’s off-season program on April 4 while he works through his rehab.
Kaepernick was the subject of off-season trade rumors and was most closely linked with a trade to the Broncos that was reportedly stalled over his unwillingness to take a pay cut.
