49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick spoke with the media on day 3 of 49ers mandatory minicamp and discussed working with new head coach Chip Kelly, his recovery from offseason surgery and more.
The 49ers quarterback returned to practice on Tuesday and participated in individual drills, 3-on-2 drills and 7-on-7 drills. Kaepernick did not partake in the team periods.
