Alex Smith Threw TD Pass With Blurred Vision

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith threw a 14-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter of Sunday’s 24-24 tie against the Rams while playing with blurred vision before coming out with a concussion.

Coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday that Smith connected with Michael Crabtree six plays after he began experiencing blurred vision on a 1-yard keeper early in the second quarter. Earlier, he had taken a vicious hit from linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar.

Smith scrambled to his left and started to slide before turning when Dunbar got him in the back of the neck with 1:10 left in the first quarter.

Harbaugh said the QB improved overnight and would see a neurologist later Monday. His status is unclear for next Monday night’s game against the Bears is uncertain.
