SANTA CLARA – Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has resumed full practice this week without any limitations on his number of throws.

Barring an unexpected setback, Kaepernick is scheduled to play Friday night against the Green Bay Packers in the 49ers’ third exhibition game.

Coach Chip Kelly said no decision has been made about whether Kaepernick or Blaine Gabbert will start. The quarterbacks are splitting the practice snaps with the first-team offense. Gabbert started the first two exhibiton games.

“We haven’t discussed it, yet,” Kelly said on Wednesday. “We got two days of training to go through. We’ll see. He’s on track. We’re excited and we’re hopeful he will be ready to go. But I’m not going to put the cart before the horse. We have a system. When we get to Friday, we’ll know exactly from (head athletic trainer Jeff Ferguson) who’s up and who’s down.

“If he’s up, he’s going to play.”

Kaepernick did not practice from Aug. 11 to Monday due to experiencing arm fatigue. He has resumed a full workload with no “pitch count.”

“He’s been sharp with all the things mentally,” Kelly said. “There’s always a little -- when you take some time off from the physical – there may be a ball that was behind from a timing standpoint, but there’s no indecision where he doesn’t know where he’s going.”

I'll be appearing on SportsTalk Live today with Jim Kozimor at 5 & 11 p.m. talking Kaepernick, and again at 6 & 10:30 p.m. on SportsNet Central -- all on CSN Bay Area. I hope you'll tune in.
