Ann Arbor — When Colin Kaepernick stood before the Michigan team at practice this week, defensive tackle Kris Jenkins sized him up and decided very quickly he can still play in the NFL.

Kaepernick, who will be honorary captain of Michigan’s spring game on Saturday at Michigan Stadium, played for Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh when he was with the 49ers. Kaepernick, who helped the 49ers make the 2013 Super Bowl, hasn’t throw a pass in the NFL since 2016.
