Smith Remains In Black, Likely To Start

Nov 17, 2012 5:00 PM EST

Alex Smith remained in a non-contact black jersey during practice on Saturday, but it all signs suggest he will start for the San Francisco 49ers on Monday against the Bears.

Smith has been taking the first-team reps throughout the week.

Jim Harbaugh said Friday that Colin Kaepernick has received a few more snaps than usual this week, but that appears to be gamesmanship.
