               === 49ers' Smith to sit Monday against Chicago ===
 
 San  Francisco, CA  (Sports Network)  - San  Francisco 49ers  quarterback Alex
 Smith  won't play  Monday against the Chicago Bears as he continues to recover
 from a concussion.
 
 Smith  was hurt  last Sunday against St. Louis  when he took a hit to the neck
 area  and  had been listed  as questionable on  the team's injury report after
 being a limited participant in practice this week.
 
 The  49ers updated Smith's status Monday and said he was not medically cleared
 to play.
 
 "Alex  Smith  has been  declared  out  for  this  evening's game  after  being
 evaluated  by  team medical  director  Dr.  Dan Garza,"  the  team  said in  a
 statement.
 
 Colin  Kaepernick  will start  Monday against  the Bears  in a  what will be a
 battle  of  backups, as Jason  Campbell will  start at quarterback for Chicago
 while Jay Cutler also recovers from a concussion sustained last week.
