San Francisco 49ers: Alex is Hurt


The San Francisco 49ers demolished the Buffalo Bills, but it might have came at a price. QB Alex Smith had one of his best games as a pro throwing over three hundred yards and three scores, then it was reported that Alex sprained the middle finger of his throwing hand. At the moment head coach Jim Harbaugh has admitted that the injury is a concern. Alex is expected to start on Sunday, the swelling on his middle finger should do down considerably. The question on many Niner fans mind is will the injury effect the way Alex throws the ball versus the New York Giants?

Week six is a game that many of the Niner Faithful have had circled ever since the schedule was made public. The Giants are coming to town and the only problem is the condition of Alex’s middle finger. I am hoping it will not be a problem; one factor to keep in mind is the adrenaline will be high during such a marquee game. Even if Alex’s finger is not at 100%, the Niner offense has shown to be very versatile and should have no problems moving the ball on the Giants.

Lastly If Alex cannot finish the game due to his injury; I have lots of faith in backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He has looked great in the past two, rushing for a touchdown in each game. The only concern about Kaepernick is that we have not seen him throw the ball too much, but from what I have seen he looks to have an accuarate arm. I do not see Giants beating the Niners on Sunday. San Francisco will dictate the pace of the game and win 27-17.

Niner nation let me know what you think. Is the injury a big deal? Do you agree with the prediction? Leave comments
