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.

Kaepernick has been dealing with shoulder fatigue but came back to practice on Monday.

Teddy Bridgewater got more work in the Vikings' Wednesday practice than he did on Tuesday, throwing a 40-yard pass downfield and hitting Kyle Rudolph on a pair of crossing routes. 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.

C Cam Erving left the Browns joint practice with the Bucs early. Coach Hue Jackson said he took Erving out to be careful: "He just had his ankle sprained a little bit. I wanted to get him out of there so we'd have a chance to play him on Friday (vs. the Bucs). I think he'll be fine."
