Found January 15, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
Since week eleven of the NFL regular season the San Francisco 49ers’ quarterback sensation, Colin Kaepernick, has replaced one man, shocked thousands, and has set records for many more young men to come. Kaepernick rose to the ranks of starting quarterback after Alex Smith suffered a concussion in a game against the St. Louis Rams. While Smith was forced to sit the 49ers organization moved forward without him and behind the athleticism of Colin Kaepernick. Kaepernick has helped his team win six of their last eight games, cemented himself as the franchise quarterback, and has led the 49ers to their second straight NFC championship game. In the process of lifting his team to victory in the postseason Kaepernick also set the record for the most rushing yards, 181, in any NFL game by a quarterback, reported Gregg Rosenthal of Colin’s record-breaking performance eclipsed the previous mark set by Michael Vick in 2005 of 119 yards, according to the Associated Press, against the St. Louis Rams. So what’s next for the fiery quarterback? Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers will head to Atlanta to take on Matt Ryan and the highly motivated Falcons who won their first playoff game in eight years against the Seattle Seahawks. It all happens this Sunday, January 20th at 3:00 p.m. on Fox.
