49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick passes early test

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick went through his most extensive practice since the 2015 season when he participated in seven-on-seven passing drills on the first day of a mandatory minicamp on Tuesday, June 7, 2016, in Santa Clara. Kaepernick was held out of any drills that might have caused him to be accidentally injured.

Notes, observations from 49ers’ first minicamp practice

First the big news: Colin Kaepernick practiced. Mostly. The only thing Kaepernick, who is coming back from three surgeries, including to his non-throwing shoulder, did not take part in was 11-on-11 drills where there is at least some semblance of a pass rush. (Tackling and hitting are not permitted, but there still are bodies flying about in the backfield.) Kaepernick looked a bit rusty early but seemed to fall into a rhythm as the practice went on. In sum, it would have been hard for someone unfamiliar with his offseason story line to tell that it was his first extensive practice of the year.

Kaepernick mimics other 49ers quarterbacks during final day of minicamp

Though not yet cleared to throw or run in the wake of offseason surgery, Colin Kaepernick was on the field on the third day of a voluntary San Francisco 49ers minicamp on Thursday, April 28, 2016, the first day of the 2016 NFL draft. Kaepernick, who is seeking a trade after being benched by the 49ers midway through last season, mimicked the motions of other quarterbacks who took snaps, passed and otherwise went through the workout.

Chip Kelly ready to ‘coach the heck out of’ Colin Kaepernick

Coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday he continues to have contact with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, including a phone call on Tuesday. But as he’s been saying since he took over as 49ers coach, the conversations have centered on Kaepernick’s health and the two have not discussed the quarterback’s desire – or lack thereof – to remain with the team.

Why Colin Kaepernick and the Denver Broncos need each other

​Disgruntled quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who asked the 49ers for a trade recently, was at his best in San Francisco when he had a quarterback-minded coach and a stellar defense to back him up. The Broncos have both in Denver, which is in need of a starting passer after losing Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock Osweiler to free agency. The Bee's Matt Barrows examines the possibilities on Wednesday, March 9, 2016.
