49ers still unsure on QB Smith's concussion comeback

The Bears made their decision Friday on Jay Cutler and his concussion. Out of Mondays game at San Francisco.

The 49ers are not ready to declare on quarterback Alex Smith, however. Backup Colin Kaepernik continue on Friday to take more practice reps, a strong indicator given that starters typically get all of them.

But Smith was due to see a neurologist on Friday as part of the evaluation process, which played out as of late Friday afternoon.

Seems like things are progressing as it does, said San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh. And then the same thing weve always said is, again, its in the doctors hands and theyll evaluate him as the week goes. There seems to be some progress.

Lake Zurich linebacker Jack Sanborn gives verbal commitment to Wisconsin

Lake Zurich four-star inside linebacker Jack Sanborn decided to end his recruiting process Wednesday night, giving the Wisconsin Badgers his verbal commitment.

"(Wisconsin) has everything I was looking for," Sanborn said. "I believe I can't go wrong there. They have the academics, great football, the campus is amazing. I feel comfortable there with all of the coaches and the players as well."

Sanborn is the eight known verbal commitment for the Badgers in the Class of 2018 and the second from Illinois, joining Lyons Township quarterback Ben Bryant.

Sanborn is currently ranked as the third-best Illinois player in the Class of 2018 and is one of seven ranked in the top 10 to give an early verbal commitment.

The Class of 2018 won't sign a Letter of Intent until Feb. 1 of next year.
