BRONCOS D-LINEMAN HURTS ANKLE
ENGLEWOOD(AP) – Denver Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe left a joint practice with the San Francisco 49ers because of a left ankle injury. Wolfe was injured Wednesday while pass rushing during 11-on-11 scrimmaging against the 49ers’ first-team offense. He limped to the locker room, leaning on team trainers walking on either side of him.
KAEPERNICK RULED OUT FOR BRONCOS’ GAME
ENGLEWOOD (AP) – Colin Kaepernick threw dozens of passes on the side during the 49ers’ joint practice Thursday with the Denver Broncos, signaling the quarterback’s return from a sore passing shoulder.
The throws were the first on the practice field in a week for Kaepernick, whose competition with Blaine Gabbert for the starting job had to be put on hold after tightness in his right shoulder forced him to rest his throwing arm. Kaepernick also took part in individual quarterback drills and conditioning. However, coach Chip Kelly said Kaepernick would be eased back into full participation in practices and ruled him out for Saturday night’s exhibition game against the Broncos.
