Alex Smith is a non-contact participant in Wednesday’s 49ers practice. He was wearing a numberless black jersey while he warmed up with the team.
According to Adam Schefter, Smith passed his initial concussion tests and is on track to start against the Chicago Bears Monday night.
Smith still must fully participate in one practice with “simulated contact activity” and have no setbacks before he’s cleared to play. The 49ers will likely wait until Saturday to put Smith through that full-contact practice.
