San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman avoided all talk about a potential trick play involving backup Colin Kaepernick lining up at wide receiver when asked about it by the media Thursday, according to a report in The Sacramento Bee.

Kaepernick lined up at wide receiver in the second quarter against the New York Jets last week. Kaepernick was initally uncovered until the Jets realized the ploy and called a timeout. Asked about the play Thursday, Roman said, "I don't know what play you're talking about."

"Yeah, I think he (Kaepernick) was talking to the official about the previous play. Next question," Roman said, according to The Sacramento Bee.

"I don't look at them as trick plays - they're football plays."

San Francisco dominated the Jets, 34-0, and will host the Buffalo Bills this weekend. Kickoff against the Bills is set for Sunday Oct. 7 at 1:25 p.m. PT. The game will be televised nationally by CBS.
