San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is listed as probable on the official injury report. San Francisco will host the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Kaepernick was a surprise appearance on the injury report, but he has been a full participant in practice. There is no word on what exactly the foot injury happens to be.
Kaepernick is the starting quarterback, and there hasn't been any thought that he might miss the game. His backups have not taken any more reps than usual.
Kaepernick was also listed with a foot injury headed into a Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts, but he played in that game, and even carried the ball seven times. There's little doubt that he'll play on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Kaepernick hasn't been the fantasy juggernaut that some thought he could be, but the season is young. The dual-threat quarterback has struggled without receiving options, but with Vernon Davis looking healthier by the day, Kaepernick is a must-start for any team that has him. He's bound to hit his stride, and given the opponent, sooner is more likely than later.
