SANTA CLARA -- Colin Kaepernick will remain as the 49ers starting quarterback on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins, coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed Monday.He said after the 49ers' overtime loss to the St. Louis Rams that he felt as if he would remain with Kaepernick. On Monday, he was asked if he still felt that way."Yes. I still feel that way," Harbaugh said. "There was a lot of positives in the game, definitely a tough loss. And specifically with Colin, especially after the fumble-touchdown, the way he responded, the way the team responded, putting ourselves in a position to win after that. And the same can be said for the safety, too. I thought he responded with some big throws and big plays."Also, Harbaugh said he expects David Akers to remain as kicker. Akers has been experiencing an issue with his pelvis, but it does not appear as if the 49ers will make a change to replace the struggling veteran. Akers missed a 51-yard attempt in overtime, but Harbaugh said he felt as if the ball was well-struck.
