San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith has been declared out for Monday night's game against Chicago with a concussion.


Injuries are a part of football, but these players have been hit particularly hard.

Team medical director Dr. Dan Garza evaluated Smith, who was hurt eight days ago against St. Louis.

The 49ers will start second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who replaced Smith in the 24-24 tie with the Rams last week.

Chicago also is without starting quarterback Jay Cutler because of a concussion. Jason Campbell will start.
