Here’s the latest on the 49ers and their starting QB..
- With reports of discord in the 49ers’ locker room regarding Colin Kaepernick, wide receiver Torrey Smith went public over the weekend with his support of the quarterback, as Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com writes. “We’re still together,” 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith said. “It’s tough. It’s frustrating, but it’s not dividing the team at all. It’s not separating Kap. Kap isn’t on a damn island. We’re here together. We’re trying to win together.”
- 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula doesn’t believe that the anti-Kaepernick leaks came from the locker room or the front office, but he did call them “an absolute concern,” as Cam Inman of the Mercury News tweets.
- Tim Kawakami of The Mercury News (Twitter links) thinks it’s “beyond obvious” that the recent Kaepernick stories are coming from 49ers management, though Tomsula can’t come out and say that. Kawakami’s reasoning? The stories are developing with the same pattern as last season with ex-coach Jim Harbaugh and they’re primarily coming from the same two national reporters.
