SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick isn't likely to play more than a series or two when San Francisco plays its first preseason game at newly finished Levi's Stadium.
Kaepernick completed his only pass and led San Francisco to a field goal in his only series of work in last week's 23-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.
Backups Blaine Gabbert and Josh Johnson split the majority of playing time the rest of the way. McLeod Bethel-Thompson mopped up in the fourth quarter.
Coach Jim Harbaugh said the plan will be the same when the 49ers host the Denver Broncos on Sunday.
One player who won't be playing at all is running back Marcus Lattimore. The 2013 fourth-round draft pick has been ''making gains'' according to Harbaugh, but remains on the team's non-football injury list.
