Jim Harbaugh talked to the media on Monday afternoon one day after the 27-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. The 49ers head coach confirmed that Nnamdi Asomugha, Patrick Willis and Vernon Davis are being evaluated. Asomugha and Willis are undergoing MRIs on their knee and groin injuries, respectively. Harbaugh also said the LaMichael James is getting back, but will still be evaluated if he is ready for the next game or not.
Here are some other things he said on Monday:
On Aldon Smith:
"[Everything] was addressed last night after the ball game. We're supportive of Aldon as well as all of our players. We've hashed through it. We're taking steps and Aldon is taking steps. We felt [playing him on Sunday] was for the best interest of the team and player long term."
On replaces Aldon Smith at OLB:
"At [outside linebacker, I will count on] Dan Skuta, Ahmad Brooks and Corey Lemonier to do a good job. We know the guys we got. Especially in nickel and dime a role."
On receivers not producing:
"Never lay it on one spot. If we're talking offensively, I thought the effort was very good by our offensive unit. Precision needs to be better. That falls on everybody. We're working on our precision and it needs improvement. We all need that and we're gonna hang our heads, keep working and try again."
On if Jon Baldwin could be utilized for future games:
"It's possible. "He's doing a good job and had a good practice last week."
On the penalties and problems throughout the loss to the Colts:
"Football is not easy. There are struggles and it's one of the things you enjoy about the games. We have adversity. There is no question about it. We also have to stare at adversity in the face and whip it. That's our goal."
On why the 49ers chose to not run the ball as much after the first quarter:
"It's a discussion we had in the past on why to throw or run the ball. Those were the plays that were called. We all have our fingerprints on it. There's different looks each game."
On playing against the Rams in a short week on Thursday night:
"It's what we have. The game is scheduled and we're back at work today."
On Colin Kaepernick and the outlook for future games:
"I feel very confident in him and I feel he is confident in what he does. We all want the precision to be better. We all strive for that. I'm confident that we'll get that done."
