Harbaugh hints that Kaepernick may start again

Nov 19, 2012 at 9:07 PM--


During the post game press conference, when San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was asked if Colin Kaepernick would be the starting quarterback going forward, he said "We'll see. Usually tend to go with the guy who's got the hot hand and we've got two quarterbacks that have got a hot hand."

This may not be good news for Alex Smith, who sat this game out while he recovers from a concussion suffered last week against the St. Louis Rams. Of course, the comment could have been made in order to add some confusion for the New Orleans Saints, who the 49ers play on Sunday afternoon. You just never know with Harbaugh.

Kaepernick was 16 of 23 for 243 yards and 2 touchdowns on Monday night in the 49ers 32-7 rout of the Chicago Bears.

Jeff Wilson Jr. looks on track to start his first game since last season. Now a veteran in the running back room, Wilson is ready for whatever the San Francisco 49ers demand of him against the Jacksonville Jaguars this weekend. "Whatever they ask [of] me," Wilson said after Friday's practice. "That's been the thing since Day 1. So whatever you're called upon, that's what you're called upon to do. So, if that was the case, that's what I'll do. If it was for me to get only a couple of carries, be a blocker, then that's what I'll do. Whatever the task is, that's what I'll do."
