Kaepernick Throwing; Siemian Start for Broncos; Cromartie Signs
Kaepernick resumes throwing
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Colin Kaepernick threw against the defense on Monday for the first time since August 10 at 49ers practice. He's been nursing a sore shoulder. Kaepernick is on track to make his preseason debut Friday against the Packers as he battles with Blaine Gabbert for San Francisco's starting quarterback job
Siemian gets exhibition start
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Trevor Siemian will start at quarterback for the Broncos when they take on the Rams Saturday in their third exhibition game. He's battling Mark Sanchez for the starting job, with neither having claimed the job outright so far. Coach Gary Kubiak says he'll decide next week who will be under center against Carolina for the season opener on Sept. 8.
Colts sign Cromartie
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Colts have fortified an injury-filled secondary by signing veteran cornerback Antonio Cromartie.
The 10-year veteran spent last season with the Jets. His 31 interceptions is third best among active players.
Starting cornerback Patrick Robinson hurt his groin in Saturday's loss to Baltimore. Pro Bowl cornerback Vontae Davis is week to week with a sprained ankle.
Chiefs get Hali back
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Chiefs have taken pass rusher Tamba Hali off the physically unable to perform list. The club says he will only practice on a limited basis. Hali had surgery in the offseason on his knees, which forced him to miss nearly every practice late last season.
Washington loses Jones
ASHBURN, Va. (AP) — Running back Matt Jones of the Washington Redskins will miss the rest of the preseason with a left shoulder injury. He separated the shoulder in Friday's game with the Jets. Coach Jay Gruden says he hopes to have Jones ready for the start of the regular-season.
