Kaepernick had posted on Twitter and Instagram earlier Tuesday a photo of submerged cars and this message: ''I warned you the (hash)7torms Coming !!! (hash)Houston. Kaepernick's jersey number is 7.
Houston and Central Texas are dealing with a severe storm that included 11 inches of rain overnight.
Kaepernick later made a follow-up post reading, ''No disrespect intended! Prayers up!'' before issuing a statement.
He wrote: ''I'm so sorry about my insensitive post earlier today. I didn't fully understand how many people are struggling in Houston right now and I feel horrible. My prayers are with everyone there.''
''Praying for all the people in Houston... Healing is on the way!'' he wrote on Twitter.
