The San Francisco 49ers have placed quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Injured Reserve, ending his season. The 28-year-old quarterback will have surgery next week on his non-throwing shoulder.
Kaepernick hurt his shoulder in Week 4, but started the next four games before taking a seat in Week 9. Don't blame Kaepernick's bad season on that injury, though. His DVOA from Weeks 1 to 4 was -38.6%; after that, it went up significantly, to -9.1%.

In this week's piece for NBC Sports, I go into more detail on Joe Goodberry's insight that Andy Dalton performs much better against teams the Bengals have not faced recently. Potentially good news for a bounceback on Sunday night against the Cardinals, and potentially very bad news yet again in the postseason.

It's good to be the Carolina Panthers: trending upwards in DVOA, with an easier schedule and postseason path moving them past the Patriots as our Super Bowl favorites.
