On Friday, 49ers general manager John Lynch called it a "glaring omission" during a Friday morning KNBR interview. "I just learned of it". Only, there was a glaring omission, as Colin Kaepernick was nowhere to be found.

Kaepernick also helped the 49ers defeat the Packers the following postseason.

The team later added photos of Kaepernick.

"Unfortunately there were a handful of obvious misses in this gallery posted by our website team and we appreciate them being brought to our attention", the team said in a statement.

Cornerback Jimmie Ward, who started and played well throughout the game, was sidelined late in the game with a hamstring injury, Shanahan said. "This oversight does not properly reflect the appreciation our ownership and this team have for Colin". "Anyone who is a fan of football, let alone 49er fans, knows that he has a great part of history against the Packers".

The 49ers supported Kaepernick in 2016 when he chose to kneel during the national anthem to protest social and racial injustice and matched his $1 million contribution toward programs for social equality. That support included matching his $1 million pledge toward social-equality programs.

Russian Orthodox Church 'rupturing' ties with the Constantinople over Ukraine split
The Moscow Patriarchate has denied being a tool of the Kremlin and says it has tried to bring about peace in eastern Ukraine. A talk show on the Rossiya1 warned that "radicals" may start seizing churches as soon as Moscow's control weakened.

Kaepernick opted out of his contract the following offseason when the 49ers told him they planned to cut him. The former quarterback had been shown in photo galleries posted past year.

The Packers offense struggled with situational football, made more frustrating mistakes and failed to maximize opportunities, while the defense allowed backup quarterback C.J. Beathard and the 49ers to score 30 points and gain over 400 yards, with much of it looking quite easy against Mike Pettine's group. He followed that up by passing for 412 yards and three touchdowns in a 2013 season-opening win over Green Bay.

There is no reason to believe the initial lack of Kaepernick photos had anything to do with the controversy surrounding the national anthem social justice protests that Kaepernick originated.

On Wednesday, Kaepernick was honoured with the W.E.B.

The team posted dozens of photos on its website of past games against the Packers before the teams meet again Monday night without at first including any of Kaepernick.

For a while it looked like the 49ers might hold on for their first victory since quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was lost for the year in Week 3 with a torn ACL.
