49ers vs. Rams injury report

Brian Bahr

Quarterback Alex Smith suffered a concussion during the 49ers 24-24 tie with the St. Louis Rams, but may still be able to play against the Bears on Monday night.

The big injury news for the San Francisco 49ers following their 24-24 tie with the St. Louis Rams was the status of quarterback Alex Smith, who suffered a concussion in the second quarter. He played several more plays afterwards, but was replaced by Colin Kaepernick.

Smith reported blurred vision after being hit on a 4th and one rush attempt, but is reportedly in much better condition after a night's sleep. The 49ers play again on Monday night against the Chicago Bears, so Smith has an extra day of recovery time. Head coach Jim Harbaugh said that Smith saw a neurologist on Monday afternoon, and has yet to rule him out for the Bears game. Smith does not have a history of concussion problems.

If Smith isn't able to play on Monday night, Colin Kaepernick will get the start for the 49ers. Kaepernick has appeared in five games for San Francisco this year, going 16-26 for 206 yards while also rushing for 177 yards and three touchdowns.
