Harbaugh mum, but 49ers safety says Kaepernick starting


Coach Jim Harbaugh would not reveal his choice Friday, but one of his players did.

Safety Donte Whitner went on a national talk show and said Colin Kaepernick will be under center against the New Orleans Saints.

Alex smith did practice Friday, but still wore the black no-contact jersey. Apparently he still has not been cleared to play, but is expected to get the OK from doctors before Sunday.
