San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters,
including Cam Inman of The Oakland Tribune, that quarterback Alex Smith is
recovering well from a concussion he sustained during last weekend’s contest
against the St. Louis Rams.
Quarterback Alex Smith is
recovering well from a concussion that knocked him out of the 49ers' 24-24 tie
with the St. Louis Rams, according to 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh.
Smith continues to go through testing to determine the
severity of his concussion and where he’s at in the recovery process. Smith
said he had blurred vision while on the field during a second quarter drive in
which he was hit hard several times. He ultimately exited the game and a
concussion was diagnosed.
Smith’s status for next week’s matchup against the Chicago
Bears remains questionable. If Smith is unable to suit up the 49ers will go
with Colin Kaepernick as their starter.
