49er defensive lineman Justin Smith is expected to play against the Seahawks in Seattle Sunday night after missing most of the second half of the Patriots game with an arm injury.
The Vikings beat the Chicago Bears 21-14 in Minnesota Sunday, thanks to 154 yards rushing and two TDs by running back Adrian Peterson.
A report from Sports Illustrated on Thursday said that San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh will start Colin Kaepernick against the New Orleans Saints.
After backup 49er quarterback Colin Kaepernick shredded the tough Chicago Bears defense in a 32-7 victory Monday night, coach Jim Harbaugh left the question unanswered. Who is the starting quarterback?
For a game that figured to have little scoring, one team had no problems putting points on the board. With back-up quarterback Colin Kaepernick running the show, the San Francisco 49ers beat the Chicago Bears up and down the field and once again put themselves in the conversation as the best team in the NFC.
The 49ers-Bears game Monday night on CBS 5 will feature two division leaders, two backup quarterbacks and two top defenses.
The San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears are two of the top teams in the NFC, but that’s with their respective starting quarterbacks.
The injury report for the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears is unremarkable except for one big name, Jay Cutler. Chicago will be without it’s starting quarterback who suffered a concussion last week and has not been cleared to play. Even without Cutler, San Francisco will have their hands full on Monday Night as they faced a very talented team.
Although the Bears will be without Jay Cutler, the game between the two teams still figures to be a fight to the end. With the two best defenses in the league on display scoring will be hard pressed for both teams, and important for the 49ers to avoid the two corners in the Chicago secondary who can change the game in one play.
After suffering a concussion in last Sunday’s tie game with the Rams, 49ers quarterback Alex Smith may be ready to play against the Bears on Monday night. If not, Colin Kaepernick will get the start.
