49ers' Colin Kaepernick: Keeping starting job

Kaepernick will remain the 49ers' starting quarterback this Sunday against the Buccaneers.

Kaepernick made his first start of the season in Sunday's loss to the Bills, completing 13 of 29 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown. He also ran eight times for 66 yards, but led San Francisco's offense to just 16 points. However, without a more attractive alternative considering Blaine Gabbert's struggles before him, Kaepernick will maintain the 49ers' starting gig versus Tampa Bay this Sunday, when he'll hope another week at the helm results in an improved performance.
