The San Francisco 49ers have named Colin Kaepernick the starting quarterback.

Colin Kaepernick

Head coach Jim Harbaugh has informed Alex Smith of his decision. Smith missed Monday night’s game with a concussion, and he hasn’t been yet.

He could be cleared by the end of the week. Harbaugh’s decision, though, apparently did not come down to Smith’s health.

After Monday night’s game, he refused to commit to Smith, which caused a controversy.

Kaepernick, on Monday Night Football, showed off his underrated passing skills. He also made throws that Smith typically did not attempt in his 49ers career.

If Kaepernick stays the quarterback for the rest of the season, Smith could be looking for a new home in the off-season. He signed a three-year, $24 million dollar deal on March 20th, 2012.

He will make $7.5 million next season with a $1 million dollar roster bonus due in March. He is also scheduled to maker $7.5 million in 2014, as well.
