    Colin Kaepernick wants to play in the NFL again but won't get shot with Redskins, reports say

    The Washington Redskins will be without quarterback Alex Smith for the foreseeable future after Smith's gruesome leg injury in Sunday's game against the Houston Texans -- but don't expect Colin Kaepernick to come running through the tunnel to replace him. Washington, which leads the NFC East with a 6-4 record, will have a few options to turn to in trying to replace Smith, who had accumulated 2,180 passing yards and 10 touchdowns for the Redskins this year, but the pool of replacements seems to be a band of ABK -- Anybody But Kaepernick. Former San Francisco 49ers star Colin Kaepernick, who hasn't played a down of football since 2016, continues to go unemployed in free agency -- though he's reeled

    Robert Kraft wants to see Colin Kaepernick return to the NFL

    Robert Kraft was one of the few NFL owners to receive good press in Devin Gordon's recent New York Times profile of NFL Players Association president Eric Winston, earning praise from the former offensive lineman for his financial investment in his team and players. That tone was echoed by Gordon, who described him as “being among the league's most progressive owners” and noted his active role in criminal justice reform, while also pointing out that Kraft's long-term approach to the success of the game is starkly juxtaposed with the average player's financial needs in the short-term. However while Kraft may fall in line with his fellow owners when it comes to prioritizing the viability of the

    Warriors appreciate how Steve Kerr handled Durant-Green spat

    The Warriors did not hear a fiery speech. They did not hear a sob story, either. When Warriors coach Steve Kerr addressed the team about Draymond Green's recent spat with Kevin Durant, Kerr offered an honest, pragmatic and optimistic message. “'One incident in November can't taint the next six months and what we're trying to accomplish,'” Warriors guard Stephen Curry recalled Kerr saying. “He spoke about that clearly.” The Warriors (12-5) took Monday off, punctuating a week in which Kerr handled something more serious than a winless three-game trip, overlapping injuries and fluid rotations. Then, the Warriors conveyed optimism they can heal their tired and injured bodies. They also expressed

    John Harbaugh: Lamar Jackson was “spectacular”

    Ravens first-round pick Lamar Jackson made his first NFL start at quarterback on Sunday and posted 117 rushing yards on the way to a much-needed 24-21 win over the Bengals.

    Richard Sherman still excellent despite small decline in play

    Richard Sherman played arguably his best game with the 49ers on Monday night against the Giants. The 30-year-old's progress through the 2018 season has been a nice bright spot in an otherwise shaky 49ers defense. Sherman may not be playing like the All-Pro he once was, but he still has plenty left to contribute on a young 49ers defense. Sherman on Monday night allowed two catches on four targets. They were the 10th and 11th receptions he's allowed this season, and it was the fourth consecutive game in which he's allowed multiple catches. He gave up just one reception through his first four games. Opposing quarterbacks have completed 11-of-24 throws in Sherman's direction for 153 yards and no
