49ers offensive lineman Alex Boone injected some humor into an otherwise mundane media session in the team's locker room Wednesday by dunking on quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

Shorly after discussing the upcoming playoff game against the Carolina Panthers, Boone entered the media scrum and dunked a ball over Kaepernick's head and into a trash can that rookie lineman Luke Marquardt was holding behind a slightly suspecting Kaepernick.

Bay Area News Group columnist Mark Purdy (with cap on) was an unsuspecting victim of Boone's slam dunk.

Neither Kaepernick nor Purdy suffered any injuries during the prank, captured on video by our 49ers beat writer Cam Inman.
