Harbaugh hints that Kaepernick may start again

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.

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

Much was said of San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch's absences from Ohio State's pro day last week. Instead of traveling to Columbus to watch quarterback Justin Fields, a candidate to be drafted with the team's No. 3 overall pick, the duo was in Tuscaloosa for Alabama's pro day, watching Mac Jones. Why Jones over Fields? "[Just] talking with Fields' agent [David Mulugheta] and everything, we'll get another one from him too," Shanahan explained last week, per Kirk Larrabee. "So we'll be able to see him. That kind of made it an easy decision." According to Fields' agent, that next opportunity will come on
