Harbaugh mum, but 49ers safety says Kaepernick starting
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KGO) -- The question of the week has been who will the 49ers start at quarterback for this Sunday?
Coach Jim Harbaugh would not reveal his choice Friday, but one of his players did.
Safety Donte Whitner went on a national talk show and said Colin Kaepernick will be under center against the New Orleans Saints.
Alex smith did practice Friday, but still wore the black no-contact jersey. Apparently he still has not been cleared to play, but is expected to get the OK from doctors before Sunday.
