LONDON (AP) - San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary says quarterback Alex Smith will miss Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos in London because of a separated left shoulder.
Singletary says Smith will be sidelined for 2 to 3 weeks and that Troy Smith will start for the Niners (1-6) at Wembley Stadium.
Alex Smith was injured on a sack in the third quarter of Sunday's 23-20 loss to the Carolina Panthers. David Carr replaced him, but was passed over for this weekend's game.
Singletary says, "Troy Smith gives us a good opportunity to win this game."
