Bob Holtzman ESPN 

On the first day of 49ers OTAs Colin Kaepernick is working alongside the other quarterbacks, but not taking snaps in drills. Chip Kelly said Kaepernick is throwing with trainers, but has not been medically cleared to practice with the team.

Bob Holtzman ESPN 

Chip Kelly said he has no set timetable to name a starting quarterback. Said the job has to be won "organically".

Bob Holtzman ESPN 

Colin Kaepernick asked to be traded, but still has made quite a first impression on his new 49ers coaches. "Works his butt off in rehab, great with the coaches, learning the offense quickly, I like him a lot" is what one coach told me. It would not surprise me if Kaepernick is the 49ers starter week 1.
