San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick appears as if he will be the starting quarterback in Week 12. QB Alex Smith's (concussion) post-concussion symptoms returned over the weekend and he is still awaiting clearance by the team doctors.

"We're going through the process (of being cleared to return). I met with them on Monday morning, the doctor. I've got a few more hoops to jump through, so we'll see how it goes this week."

QB | Ryan Lindley | Arizona Cardinals | Injury, Fantasy
Arizona Cardinals QB Ryan Lindley is likely to remain the starter until QB Kevin Kolb (ribs) is able to return. "Statistically, obviously, there's nothing to write home about," head coach Ken Whisenhunt said of the rookie. "But he did a nice job I thought in a lot of areas managing the game, handling the noise, doing some of the things he needed to do in protection. He looked comfortable in the pocket, made some good throws." Whisenhunt said he's currently undecided on the starting quarterback for Week 12, but he pulled QB John Skelton out of the Week 11 contest after he missed a wide open WR Larry Fitzgerald in the end zone and said players needed to be held accountable for mistakes.
