49ers HC Jim Tomsula discussed the team’s decision to bench QB Colin Kaepernick in favor of Blaine Gabbert, saying:
“I made the decision to go with Gabbert this week. It was a tough decision. In no way is 2-6 all on Kaepernick. That’s all of us.” (Eric Branch)
- Tomsula added that he wants Kaepernick to “step back” and “take a look at things“. (Eric Branch)
- Mike Garafolo echoed similar sentiments, saying the word behind the scenes is that the team’s “legitimately not giving up on him“.
- Mike Chappell reports that Colts WR T.Y. Hilton had MRI this week to check out a foot injury.
- According to Chappell, it’s unknown if Hilton will miss time.
- Eagles QB Sam Bradford when asked whether he turned down a four-year deal, said he never saw it, adding: “That offer must have gotten lost in the mail.” (Zach Berman)
