07:09 AM ET 08.20 | Of course, when Niners' rookie wide receiver Quinton Patton arrived with a splint on the index finger on his left hand, it was assumed the injury came courtesy a certain hard-throwing, MLB-drafted quarterback. But Patton, a fourth-round draft pick from Louisiana Tech, revealed a surprising development Monday. He said the fractured finger he sustained was not the work of strong-armed Colin Kaepernick. "Everybody thinks it was a Kaepernick pass," Patton said, "but it was really Colt (McCoy) who did it." McCoy is not known for featuring a particularly strong throwing arm. But Patton was off-limits for catching passes through the first week of training camp. "It was on a comeback (route)," Patton said. "I kind of spread my fingers. I had them pointing straight out."

Admins - whatever you did, back it out. When something is broken on IE and Firefox, it's broken.
