A day after David Akers' latest painful miss, Jim Harbaugh expressed optimism that the veteran kicker would return to his reliable form. The 49ers coach said he expected Akers to be his kicker this Sunday against the Miami Dolphins at Candlestick Park. "I do,'' Harbaugh said Monday. "We'll see what his health status is this week, but all indications are (he'll play)."
