Colin Kaepernick injury update news comes from the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback himself for Week 7. Kaepernick actually addressed his recent foot injury on Wednesday (Oct. 16), finally giving fans a few answers about it. According to a report on the interview, he stated that his injury is a hangnail. When pressed about it further, he stated that he even had one on each foot.
That might not be the exact answer that fantasy football owners or 49ers fans were hoping to hear from the star quarterback, but at least he is showing a sense of humor during a tense NFL season. He still shows up on the injury reports with a foot issue, even if it isn't explained further on there either. Entering the Week 7 schedule, he is listed as probable, with the expectation that he will definitely start against the Tennessee Titans.
It has been rumored that the lack of a real Colin Kaepernick injury update is because it is hampering him from running more often, but that hasn't been reported as fact just yet. No matter what his foot problem happens to be, it seems that fans shouldn't worry about him missing any action because of it. Either way, he is a rough option to start during Week 7, especially against a stingy Titans defense.
This presents the perfect week to look for another option, as he may struggle to pass for 200 yards again. On the other side, Frank Gore could be in for some heavy use by the San Francisco 49ers, making the running back a must-start in the Sunday game (Oct. 20).
