I think it happened that way because the staff thought Alex would be cleared before the game.
Exactly. I mean, last week, they thought Alex would be cleared and gave him all the first-team reps. This week, Kaepernick did well, and Alex is still not cleared early in the week, so give Kaepernick the first-team reps. They didn't want the starting QB to not be fully prepared two weeks in a row.
It's not something that deserves huge news *yet.*
If next week, the team goes with Kaepernick instead of a fully healthy Alex, then THAT is news.
