Colin Kaepernick will be spending less time on the sidelines.
FOX's Chris Hoenig reports:
San Francisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly naming Colin Kaepernick the starting quarterback for Sunday's game at the Buffalo Bills:
(Kelly) "We were very analytical and sat down as a staff and you know, watched tape and went over everything. We've had a couple days to adjust everything where we are. I think offensively we need to be better and we need to just make a move."
Kaepernick has been making headlines for spear-heading protests during the national anthem in a push for social justice.
Kelly saying the 28-year-old has also been pushing QB Blaine Gabbert in practice:
(Kelly) "He's worked extremely hard on his rehab, you're talking about a guy that missed the off-season because of the injuries."
The Niners are (1-4) to open the season. Gabbert with the second-worst passer rating in the NFL through five weeks.
