The San Francsico 49ers released their injury report and, unlike the Oakland Raiders, it’s relatively limited. The only significant injuries are that TE Delanie Walker and Curtis Taylor are out. Taylor is a backup safety and sees most of his time on special teams. It’s a tough loss for the special teams unit, but not for the regulars.
Delanie Walker is a bigger loss as he has been a key mismatch for the 49ers when healthy. Although he’s a backup tight end to Vernon Davis, he brings the speed of a wide receiver, which means the 49ers can move him all over the field mixing things up.
What should be interesting is how the return game is affected. As mentioned on Niners Nation, Kyle Williams practiced all week which means he might take some return time from Ted Ginn Jr. We’ll see on Sunday.
