SAN FRANCISCO - Former Wolf Pack quarterback Colin Kaepernick is expected to start for the 49ers against the Saints this Sunday.
SI.com is reporting that head coach Jim Harbaugh informed both Kaepernick and incumbent starter Alex Smith of his decision tonight.
A source tells SI.com that the decision is not based on health. Smith missed the Monday night game against the Bears after suffering a concussion the week before.
Kaepernick completed 16 of 23 passes for 243 yards and two TDs in the 49ers’ 32-7 win over Chicago.
