49ers GM Trent Baalke was non-committal regarding Colin Kaepernick‘s future with the team now that he’s been placed on season-ending injured reserve.
“I wouldn’t say [he’s played his last snap with the 49ers] at all,” Baalke said, via ESPN.com. “I think people are reading into that. For me, where we stand right now, I wouldn’t read too much into that right now.”
“Right now is not the time to get into the particulars,” Baalke added. “Right now, he’s no different than any other player that’s been placed on IR. When that surgery takes place, then the rehab process, getting him ready for the offseason program’s the next step.”
“He is aware that everything he does — his personality, his style, his enthusiasm — it’s all going to be interpreted negatively,” Jones said, via ESPN.com. “If he’s not aware of that, then he’s hurting a lot of people.
“I think he really gets that. We certainly feel that way. He understands it, and he has agreed to really work on it.”
Jets HC Todd Bowles told reporters after today’s game that he isn’t considering a quarterback change “at this time.”
“When we meet every Monday, our discussion involves who starts at every position,” Bowles said, via NJ.com. “We’ll discuss everything we’re doing Monday like we always do.”
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that rookie RB Thomas Rawls‘ performance Sunday — 30 carries for 209 yards rushing, 46 yards receiving, and two touchdowns — could make veteran RB Marshawn Lynch expendable next year.
Florio points out that Lynch is scheduled to make $9 million next year, which is far more than Rawls’ $525,000.
- Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said RB Marshawn Lynch, who is dealing with an abdomen injury, will see a specialist in Philadelphia on Monday.
