Alex Smith declared out for Monday night
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith has been declared out for Monday night’s game against Chicago with a concussion.
Smith practiced on a limited basis during the week, but could not pass tests under the NFL’s concussion treatment protocol to allow him back on the field against Chicago.
Smith has made 28 consecutive starts and led the 49ers to a 6-2-1 record this season. He was injured during the first half against the Rams and left the game midway through the second quarter.
Last season, his first under coach Jim Harbaugh, Smith led the 49ers to a 13-3 record and within an overtime loss to the Giants of a spot in the Super Bowl.
