The San Francisco 49ers are apologizing for initially

leaving Colin Kaepernick out of a photo gallery celebrating the team's history against the Green Bay Packers.The team posted dozens of photos on its website of past games against the Packers before the teams meet again Monday night without at first including any of Kaepernick.The team later added photos of Kaepernick. This is the first photo gallery the team has run this year but pictures of Kaepernick were included in all seven photo galleries posted on the team's website last year."Unfortunately there were a handful of obvious misses in this gallery posted by our website team and we appreciate them being brought to our attention http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/ahkello-witherspoon-jersey ," the team said in a statement. "The 49ers organization has tremendous respect and gratitude for the contributions Colin made to our team over the years."Kaepernick set an NFL record for quarterbacks by rushing for 181 yards in a playoff win against Green Bay on Jan. 12, 2013, threw for 413 yards in a season-opening win against the Packers in 2013, and led a winning drive to win a playoff game in Green Bay on Jan. 5, 2014."We have fond memories of those games and that should have been displayed on our website," the team said. "This oversight does not properly reflect the appreciation our ownership and this team have for Colin."The 49ers supported Kaepernick in 2016 when he decided to kneel during the national anthem to protest social and racial injustice and matched his $1 million contribution toward programs for social equality.Kaepernick opted out of his contract the following offseason when the 49ers told him they planned to cut him. Kaepernick has been unable to find another team to play for the past two seasons.Coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about bringing Kaepernick back after starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury and said he still didn't fit the team's offense."I made that decision just with the style of offense that we wanted to go with," Shanahan said on Sept. 24. "That's kind of what I said last year and it's kind of the same situation now. If you're thinking of if there'd be a different discussion now, I always look into what style of offense I want to do White Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , what style of offense we've been doing for the last two years."Vikings DE Danielle Hunter says Jimmy Garoppolo was starting to get scared I know we all want to move on from the San Francisco 49ers’ ugly, ugly loss to the Minnesota Vikings, but unfortunately, there’s so much for us to take from this, both good and bad. That said, we got more negative reactions on Jimmy Garoppolo and it’s not from over-passionate fans. Apparently the Vikings are piling on also.Defensive end Danielle Hunter was asked on Sunday if the defense sense Garoppolo was getting frustrated as the game wore on. Hunter said, “As the game goes on, you have got to bring the pressure on him. You see that he’s starting to get scared.”Garoppolo took three sacks in the game. The 49ers offensive line was also decimated by injuries so badly that they had to move Mike McGlinchey inside to offensive guard and then run much of their offense on the left side. It was the least desirable protection for the 49ers quarterback Youth Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey , but from a (biased) view, I didn’t exactly see Garoppolo caving into pressure. I saw a bad interception to end the game, but it never seemed like Garoppolo was rattled. We’ll see if this carries over to Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions. Given the age of Garoppolo’s career, it’s not like he wasn’t prepared for this. Given that he already took a vicious hit that led to a shoulder injury in New England, you’d think that would carry over when he got to the 49ers and shown up much earlier than now. Him getting scared all the sudden doesn’t seem to fit the narrative. Do you think Jimmy G saw some phantom pressure over time? Was he starting to get rattled?
