NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Jim Harbaugh made an interesting digression in his postgame interview. Here it is.
HARBAUGH: Great road win. Had a lot of families here for this game. Daniel Kilgore had close to 100 friends and relatives. Patrick Willis’ family was here. Quinton Patton is from here, his mom came over and cooked for us last night. It was a neat day. You could see it brewing when we landed, just how many relatives from the Midwest and the East and the South came over. NaVorro Bowman’s mom was here. Aldon Smith’s mom was here, that was neat to see. It’s always good to play well and win for our families that are in the Midwest and the East Coast and the South.
Q: Do you expect to have Aldon Smith back with the team after the Bye week?
HARBAUGH: I’m not real knowledgeable on exactly when that’s going to be, but I think at some point here in the next couple weeks. Things are going very well for him.
Q: There was a report that Aldon Smith may not return this season. You expect him to be back and playing in the next few weeks? Is that accurate?
HARBAUGH: I’m hopeful. I’m not the definitive source on any announcement there.
