Colin Kaepernick is a step closer to being the “Madden NFL ‘15” cover player.
Kaepernick is now in the quarterfinals. He beat Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles, 57 percent to 43 percent in the first round. He is now facing Carolina linebacker Luke Kuechly. Voting runs through May 22.
If Kaepernick beats Kuechly, a potential semifinal showdown against Seattle adversary Richard Sherman looms.
