Kaepernick was recently benched in favor of Blaine Gabbert as the starter. Just Friday, Kaepernick was listed as probable on the 49ers’ injury report.

According to the Sacramento Bee, he has had the injury since the team’s Oct. 4 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Kaepernick played in nine games (eight starts) this season. He threw for 1,615 yards with six touchdowns and five interceptions. He also rushed for 256 yards with one touchdown.

The Cowboys won their first two games of the season but have lost all seven that Romo has missed.

The Green Bay Packers upgraded defensive back Micah Hyde (hip) and guard T.J. Lang (shoulder) to probable for Sunday’s NFC North showdown against the Minnesota Vikings.

Packers wide receiver Ty Montgomery (ankle) was downgraded to doubtful further depleting the receiving corps with Jared Abbrederis ruled out with rib and chest injuries.
