Harbaugh deems quarterback spot open competition

  •  

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Rookie Colin Kaepernick will get his shot to compete with Alex Smith for the 49ers' starting quarterback job.

While coach Jim Harbaugh still considers it Smith's spot to lose, he said Saturday nobody has earned the position so far in training camp.

In addition, San Francisco will consider adding an experienced backup on the heels of a 24-3 loss at New Orleans on Friday night in the 49ers' exhibition opener and Harbaugh's NFL coaching debut.

Kaepernick, a second-round draft pick out of Nevada, completed 9 of 19 passes for 117 yards and threw two interceptions. He played most of the game. The 2005 No. 1 overall pick, Smith was 2-for-7 for 10 yards.
