Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert split reps
Colin Kaepernick evenly split starting reps with Blaine Gabbert Sunday in the 49ers’ first practice of training camp, and both completed 7-of-10 passes in 11-on-11 drills.
Kaepernick had a pass intercepted in 7-on-7 drills.
Each quarterback appeared to handled a few more than their prescribed 12 snaps on the first- and second-string units in what promises to be the franchise’s most scrutinized quarterback duel in years, perhaps since Joe Montana and Steve Young 25 years ago.
HC Chip Kelly said he's looking for a QB to get the team to the end zone and not turn the ball over. Although Kelly likely won't admit it, Kaepernick seems like a better fit for his system but he didn't have a mobile QB with Nick Foles or Sam Bradford in Philly.
