    05/18/16QBColin KaepernickLeft shoulderPROBABLEWhen asked about the quarterback controversy in San Francisco, head coach Chip Kelly said he has "no idea" who will start this season, The Mercury News reports.

    That is actually a fair response from Kelly, because Kaepernick is still rehabbing from thumb, shoulder and knee injuries and he hasn't had a chance to see what both quarterbacks can offer at full strength. Kelly also mentioned that Kaepernick has been at every meeting and practice "doing what he can." From the sounds of it, Kaepernick may be finally over the whole offseason fiasco that almost had him playing for a different team leading up to the draft. For now, it seems as though he will still call San Francisco home. Once he is fully healed from his injuries (target is still early-June), we will be able to see a true quarterback competition between he and Blaine Gabbert.

    04/27/16DBAntoine BetheaShoulderPROBABLEStrong safety Jaquiski Tartt is listed as the starting strong safety for the 49ers heading into Sunday against St. Louis.

    With news of Antoine Bethea (pectoral) being placed on season-ending IR, the 49ers will call on their second round pick from this year's draft to start at safety. Tartt has the size and athleticism to play the position. He is more known for his big-hit ability rather than his coverage, so it would be safe to assume that he will be a modest source of tackles, rather than interceptions while he is starting.

    04/27/16DLGlenn DorseyKneeQUESTIONABLEGM Trent Baalke claims Dorsey is making "very good progress" in his recovery from an ACL tear, Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News reports. Regarding Dorsey's availability for Week 1, Baalke went on to say, "I'm never going to give a definitive [answer] because I don't know. He could always have a setback coming up. But right now he's making progress, he looks good, his mind's in a great place, and ready to roll."

    Despite this endorsement of health, Dorsey is almost certainly slated for the PUP list to start training camp. However, he won't necessarily begin the season there. Dorsey suffered the torn ACL last season against the Seahawks on Nov. 22, and although occurring late in the season, he could certainly be "ready to roll" come opening day. Comparatively, DT Geno Atkins suffered an ACL tear in Week 9 of the 2013 season, and was good to go for Week 1 of 2014.

    04/27/16DLIan WilliamsAnkleQUESTIONABLEWilliams' contract with the 49ers has been reworked into a one-year deal worth up to $6 million due to the uncertainty surrounding his availability for the beginning of the upcoming season, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Williams initially agreed to a reported five-year, $27.5 million contract with the 49ers following a career year last season, but after he couldn't pass a team physical due to multiple offseason ankle surgeries, Williams contract was reworked into a one-year deal. A player that's had numerous procedures to his left leg during his pro career, Williams' status for the start of the 2016 is in question following his latest operations, leaving the 49ers in need of some depth up front in case he's unavailable.

    05/17/16TEClive WalfordKneeQUESTIONABLEWalford (knee) will likely be cleared before training camp, ESPN's Adam Caplan reports.

    Walford is sitting out the first round of OTAs after injuring his knee in an offseason ATV accident. He may miss out on a few reps, but he should still have every opportunity to push for an increased role, likely at the expense of Mychal Rivera. The 2015 third-rounder caught 28 passes for 329 yards and three scores on 51 targets as a rookie; Rivera had 32 receptions for 280 yards and a touchdown on 46 targets.

    04/27/16LBNeiron BallKneePROBABLEBall (knee) is "doing everything" and expected to be "ready to roll" for the offseason program by Raiders' GM Reggie McKenzie.

    Ball emerged in Week 5 of last season by holding Denver TE Owen Daniels without a catch on five targets. The performance earned him his first career start versus San Diego in Week 6, but shortly into the game he suffered a knee sprain and was ruled out by halftime. Ball will serve as depth for an imposing Raiders' outside linebacking corps in 2016 behind Khalil Mack, Bruce Irvin, Malcolm Smith and perhaps Aldon Smith (suspension), should he return in November.

    04/27/16RBMarcel ReeceSuspensionSUSPENDReece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports.

    Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.

    (Updated 12/28/2015)
    04/27/16LBAldon SmithSuspensionSUSPENDThe Raiders and Smith (suspension) agreed to a two-year contract Monday, the team's official site reports.

    In the midst of a one-year suspension for another violation of the NFL's policy for substances of abuse, Smith will remain where he spent the first nine games of the 2015 season, when he contributed 3.5 sacks among 28 tackles to the Raiders' pass rush. It remains to be seen whether he'll be strictly contained to a one-year ban, as the commissioner's office has been known to do their due diligence once a suspended player applies for reinstatement. Depending on further adjustments made to the defense in the offseason, free-agent addition Bruce Irvin appears set to man strongside linebacker in the meantime.
