QBs Smith, Cutler inactive for 49ers-Bears game
SAN FRANCISCO (AP)
Colin Kaepernick was set to make his first NFL start for the 49ers, who activated third-string quarterback Scott Tolzien as a backup. Smith failed to pass tests under the NFL's concussion treatment protocol after he was injured last week in a tie against the St. Louis Rams.
Chicago also is without Cutler because of a concussion. Jason Campbell, who missed the final 10 games with the Oakland Raiders last season with a broken collarbone, started for the Bears for the first time.
