49ers | Alex Smith likely to play

San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith (concussion) intends to play in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears, and that it would be a surprise if he doesn't, according to a source with knowledge of the situation. The only hurdle reportedly in the path of Smith is a so-called "contact" test, which will entail hitting Smith with a pad in the helmet and monitoring him for concussion symptoms.
