Colin Kaepernick had made a lot of plays with his legs for the San Francisco 49ers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean he can’t throw. Not only has he completed more than 67% of his passes this season, but Kaepernick is also capable of putting some zip on the ball and sticking it into tight spots. Randy Moss said that is the reason he recently suffered the first dislocated finger of his 14-year career. “When he found me (on one play) it was kind of too late to throw it, but he threw it anyway,” Moss told CSNBayArea.com when discussing the play where he hurt his finger. He had to put one of them Randy Johnson fastballs on me. When it hit my finger I felt my finger pop. I dislocated it so I had to come back to the sideline and the doctor had to pop it back in. “Kap throws hard. He’s very strong, he works out every day. I didn’t really say anything to him besides keep doing what he’s doing. My finger will heal up.” Moss has played with Daunte Culpepper, Brett Favre and Tom Brady — three players who can be categorized as having strong arms. A dislocated finger can happen on any play regardless of how much zip is on the ball, but the fact that Moss brought it up is obviously an indication of how strong he thinks Kaepernick is. When you spend some of your free time lifting up a 115-pound pet tortoise, arm strength is probably easy to come by. Helmet smack to Pro Football Talk Photo credit: Derick E. Hingle-US PRESSWIRE
