Colin Kaepernick will start for the San Francisco 49ers this week

Colin Kaepernick, who made national headlines by  sitting during the National Anthem before a game, will start for the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday.

Kaepernick was benched the previous season (before the anthem protests began), but his replacement, Blaine Gabbert, has led the 49ers to a lowly 1-4 record this season. Kaepernick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl in 2012.

Kaepernick's protests have made him a controversial figure. One poll lists him as the least popular player in the league. But during the height of his protests, many stood with him, including veterans.
