49ers' Colin Kaepernick: Receives clearance from Colorado doctor
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Kaepernick received clearance from the Colorado doctor that performed his shoulder surgery in November, but the 49ers' medical staff must still clear him for training camp, which kicks off Sunday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

In a two-month span, Kaepernick underwent procedures on a torn labrum in his left shoulder and a ligament tear in his right thumb, as well as a scope on his left knee, but the first surgery was the one that limited his reps in the offseason program. As a result, Blaine Gabbert currently has a leg up in the competition for starting QB, which will begin in earnest this weekend. Considering Kaepernick's noted mobility would be an asset in new head coach Chip Kelly's system, his ability to take the practice field immediately will aid in his quest for the top gig.

49ers' Vance McDonald: Should start this season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

McDonald -- who started seven games last season -- is a likely candidate to be one of the 49ers' two starting tight ends this year, according to the Mercury News.

McDonald recorded 281 yards and three touchdowns in the seven games he started after Vernon Davis was traded last season. That was done on a 31st-ranked San Francisco offense in 2015. With a new Chip Kelly offense that utilizes a lot of two-TE sets, McDonald should be in line to see an expanded role in 2016.

49ers' Garrett Celek: Could see increased offensive role in 2016
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Celek is an early favorite to co-start with Vance McDonald at tight end this season, the Mercury News reports.

Celek was recently signed to a four-year extension, indicating that the 49ers plan to implement him in the offense. With Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense and heavy use of two-TE sets, Celek could be in line for an expanded role after putting up 186 yards and three touchdowns in 2015.

49ers' Eli Harold: Expected to replace Lynch
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Harold is expected to fill the void left by Aaron Lynch's four-game suspension to start the season.

Harold has a big opportunity to seize a starting role out of training camp with Lynch violating the league's substance abuse policy. He packed on a planned 30 pounds this past offseason, so he likely won't be used as a pass-rush specialist, but he could rack up some tackles against the run if he does end up winning the job.

49ers' Aaron Lynch: Suspended four games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Lynch has been suspended for the first four games of the regular season for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Lynch slid to the fifth round of the 2014 Draft amid character concerns, but developed into of the league's best young outside linebackers by totaling 12.5 sacks over his first two seasons. Nonetheless, Lynch has now incurred his first NFL off-field slip-up, and will miss the first quarter of the regular season as a consequence. With Lynch suspended until San Francisco's Week 5 game against the Cardinals, the 49ers will be without their best pass rusher, and will instead have to look to Eli Harold and Corey Lemonier to fill snaps opposite Ahmad Brooks (undisclosed).
