49ers starting QB Alex Smith was not inactive for Sunday’s game vs the Saints. Despite that, he still watched from the sideline, as backup Colin Kaepernick led the team to a huge 31-21 win over the Saints.
Kaepernick threw for a touchdown and ran for another, while Ahmad Brooks and Donte Whitner each returned an interception for a score as the Niners pushed their mark to 8-2-1.
The Niners backup QB went 16-of-25 passes for 231 yards with the touchdown and an interception in his second career start.
Smith suffered a concussion during the 49ers’ 24-24 tie against the Rams two weeks ago, and although Smith was cleared for contact earlier this week, Kaepernick remained the starter for San Francisco.
