Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert split reps

Mercury News - [Full Article]

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.

Fantasy Impact: 

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.
