Injury Report

A week after the 49ers decided to deactivate Alex Smith before Monday Night Football against the Bears, the team will be rolling out Colin Kaepernick for his second straight start. The Saints present a worse defense, but the Superdome noise will present a challenge, and I'd imagine the Saints will consider some alternative ways to slow Kaepernick. The adjustments will be interesting to follow. Let's hope for the W!
