As most of the pregame buildup indicated, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will make his second consecutive start in New Orleans on Sunday. Multiple reports Sunday morning said Kaepernick is the starter over Alex Smith, who was limited most of last week and didn't play in Monday's 32-7 win over the Chicago Bears. Smith, sidelined with a concussion in the November 11 game against St. Louis, was still listed as questionable on the official injury report Friday, just before head coach Jim Harbaugh made his own questionable announcement on the issue. Harbaugh said he chooses not to name a starter in order to maintain a "competitive advantage." Harbaugh admitted that Smith still had not yet passed the impact test prerequisite to play in a game, but said that the eighth-year veteran has felt no concussion symptoms and has looked sharp in practice.
