Colin Kaepernick is getting his shot.

San Francisco 49ers coach Chip Kelly said Tuesday that the quarterback will start Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, replacing Blaine Gabbert.

Kaepernick has made headlines since the preseason by sitting, then kneeling, during the national anthem to protest social injustice and police brutality.

The 49ers need a spark after losing four in a row following their Week 1 win in Kelly’s first season as coach.
