FOX Sports reported today that Alex Smith has decided to have surgery on his shoulder sometime during the upcoming weeks. Smith will not play again this season.
During today's game against the Vikings, Shaun Hill came in after Trent Dilfer suffered a concussion at the end of the first half. Hill was 22 of 28 for 181 yards, one touchdown and one interception. While it looked as though Hill had thrown two interceptions, the last one was ruled a fumble.
Nolan had no comment after the game on who will back up Shaun Hill next week against the Bengals, but did mention former UCLA quarterback Drew Olson, who was signed on November 20th. Olson has yet to suit up for a game this season.
