49ers | Alex Smith out for Week 11

San Francisco 49ers QB Alex Smith (concussion) will not play in Week 11. He was unable to get clearance from a neurologist, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Colin Kaepernick gets the starting nod in Smith's absence. Kaepernick replaced Smith last week after the injury and was 11-for-17 passing with 117 yards, in addition to rushing for 66 yards and a touchdown. Kaepernick has the ability to be a dual threrat; however, he faces a tough task in this game against a superior Chicago Bears defense. Look for the offense to feature the ground game and RB Frank Gore (ribs, wrist) even more.
