August 25, 2013 Harbaugh leaves no doubt: McCoy is his No. 2 QB
It wasn't exactly a definitive performance. Colt McCoy was 11-15 for 109 yards with an interception in the 49ers' 34-14 win over the Vikings. But afterward, Jim Harbaugh left no doubt that McCoy, who was the subject of trade rumors earlier in the day, was the top backup for Colin Kaepernick heading into the season.
"He was accurate with his throws," Harbaugh said. "I thought he was plus, plus tonight."
Earlier in the day, an NFL.com report said the 49ers were making and receiving calls about trading McCoy, not a farfetched scenario considering his struggles this preseason and the fact the 49ers signed Seneca Wallace, their fifth quarterback, on Thursday.
Harbaugh, however, dismissed the report as "speculation." "If it's on the Internet it must be true," he said archly.
McCoy did verify that he restructured his contract on the eve of today's game. He was due to earn $1.5 million this season. A league source told The Bee the new salary was the league minimum for a veteran - $630,000 - along with incentives.

MM and MB seem to believe that Harbaugh has decided to make McCoy the back up quarterback.
But, apparently there is some doubt. I started a thread and it was locked. Guess, we have to wait.
