The San Francisco 49ers are not going to win Super Bowl XLVII this season, and so far, it appears they are going to be without one of their two quarterbacks.
The 49ers announced Thursday that quarterback Colin Kaepernick has a knee injury that could require surgery.
That would mean that the team has lost two of their three starting quarterbacks.
Kaepernick was a three-time Pro Bowler, and he played with the 49ers from 2000-2010.
He started 13 games during that time and completed 65.3 percent of his passes for 1,632 yards with 22 touchdowns and 13 interceptions.
Kaepernick was one of the most efficient quarterbacks in the NFL last season.
But his health has been an issue.
He has missed four games in 2017 and his status for this season has not been finalized.
The 49ers said Kaepernick will undergo a physical and they will decide by the end of the week whether or not he can play.
“The team has been great to me,” Kaepernick said Thursday.
“I’m thankful for that.
I appreciate it.
I love it.
But, for now, I just want to get on with my life and my family.
That’s all I can do right now.”
