Jim Trotter just tweeted that Jim Harbaugh has informed Alex Smith that Colin Kaepernick will start against the Saints in New Orleans on Sunday.
According to Trotter’s sources, Harbaugh’s decision is not based on Smith’s health.
Here’s how I interpret this: If Kaepernick plays another stellar game against the Saints, the starting quarterback job is his for good. If he falls on his face, Smith could get another chance.
How do you interpret this?
