Asked whether he fears for his safety when he goes on the road, 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said he didn't think that would be an issue. "(I'm) not really too concerned about that," Kaepernick said. "At the end of the day, if something happens, that's only proving my point."

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick spoke to reporters for nearly 20 minutes today about his decision to sit during the national anthem. During the discussion, Kaepernick touched on times he and friends have been harassed by police, his explanation for how the decision to do this evolved, the presidential election, why he did it alone and whether he fears for his safety on the road. "People don't realize what's really going on in this country," Kaepernick said. "There are a lot things that are going on that are unjust. People aren't being held accountable for. And that's something that needs to change. That's something that this country stands for freedom, liberty and justice for all. And it's not happening for all right now."

49ers QB Colin Kaepernick said he will continue to sit during the national anthem. "I'll continue to sit," Kaepernick said. "I'm going to continue to stand with the people that are being oppressed. To me this is something that has to change. When there's significant change and I feel like that flag represents what it's supposed to represent, this country is representing people the way that it's supposed to, I'll stand."

The 49ers made three more roster moves Sunday as they move closer to the league-mandated limit of 75 by Tuesday. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Niners dealt OL Brandon Thomas to the Detroit Lions for WR Jeremy Kerley. Kerley gives the Niners some depth at receiver and a potential replacement in the slot if Bruce Ellington's hamstring injury turns out to be serious. The 49ers also released OL Erik Pears and TE Busta Anderson. They now stand at 77 players on the roster and need to make two more moves before Tuesday's deadline.
