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.
