49ers head coach Chip Kelly wouldn’t say whether or not quarterback Colin Kaepernick will remain the team’s starter for next week’s game against the Buccaneers.

“We’ll see,” Kelly said postgame in response to a question about the veteran’s job moving forward.

San Francisco fell to 1–5 with Sunday’s 45–26 loss to the Bills. In his first start of the season in place of the struggling Blaine Gabbert, Kaepernick completed 13 of 29 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown, adding 66 yards on the ground.

Before Sunday, Kaepernick’s last touchdown was a 21-yard pass to Quinton Patton against the Ravens in Week 6 last year.
