Bob McNair Has Not Signed Off On A Colin Kaepernick Workout

Colin Kaepernick to the Texans? It's looking unlikely.

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson tore his ACL in practice on Thursday, and in response, the team signed signal-caller Matt McGloin to replace him on the roster. Friday, the team made another move - signing T.J. Yates, who had previously played for the franchise. Neither of those moves, obviously, involves Colin Kaepernick.

Thursday night, a report suggested that team owner Bob McNair had signed off on a workout for Kaepernick. Not so much, says Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

As to a report (that has since been dubbed a joke . . . good one?) that owner Bob McNair has signed off on a Colin Kaepernick workout, a source with knowledge of the situation tells PFT that this isn’t accurate.

Houston sits at 3-4 on the season and until Thursday, the team had hopes of snagging a spot in the playoffs. If McGloin or Yates don't work out, perhaps the team could still entertain the idea of bringing in Kaepernick.
