Montee Ball (appendectomy) will be sidelined for the rest of training camp and the preseason, but is expected to be ready for the regular-season opener against the Indianapolis Colts.
This is an interesting development. Ball is penciled in as the starter ahead of Ronnie Hillman and C.J. Anderson. An expected back-end of the first round pick in fantasy drafts, it would be disastrous if the time on the shelf costs him carries at the beginning of the season. It could also present an opportunity to less risk-averse owners.ANALYST:
Colin Kaepernick has worked with Kurt Warner on his throwing mechanics this offseason.
Specifically, the story notes that Kaepernick is working on "engaging his lower half" to allow for better touch. It's hard to believe Kurt Warner would know more about throwing mechanics than Jim Harbaugh or any other quarterback coach Kap has ever worked with. This appears to be more fluff than anything else, though is reports from camp suggest there's been a real change to approach or delivery of throwing a football, it could be something worth remembering on draft day.
