‘I’m going with Kaepernick, Alex, I’m sorry’

Thursday, November 22, 2012

That’s the quote being attributed to Jim Harbaugh by Sports Illustrated’s Jim Trotter, who tweets this evening:

BREAKING: Jim Harbaugh has informed Alex Smith that Colin Kaepernick will start Sunday, per source. Said decision not based on health.

The 49ers face the Saints in New Orleans and, if it happens, the benching of Smith, who’s having the best year of his career, would be a phenomenal development. Every bit as phenomenal as Kaepernick’s debut start Monday night against the Bears.

Eric Branch weighs in at the Chronicle’s 49ers blog.
