Last week, 49ers GM Trent Baalke said he and QB Colin Kaepernick had sat down and had a good conversation recently. Asked what his relationship with Baalke is like now, Kaepernick called it a "business" relationship. Asked if he would agree with the characterization of the conversation as a good one, Kaepernick said "We had a conversation." Kaepernick, of course, was the subject of a number of trade rumors during the offseason but remained with the team.

Bridgewater, who sat out last Thursday night with a sore shoulder, said he plans to play on Sunday against the San Diego Chargers. On his 40-yard throw on Wednesday, Bridgewater overthrew Rudolph, but a referee working the practice called Captain Munnerlyn for pass interference.
