The San Francisco 49ers are hoping to win their final two games and stay in line for that second seed and a first-round bye in the playoffs. But they have a big task ahead of them when they go up to Seattle to play the desperate Seahawks. The Seahawks want to get to the playoffs, and they know they must win out to get there.
San Francisco might be down a critical cog if Ted Ginn, Jr. can't get going. Ginn suffered an ankle injury during the Monday Night Football victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers, and for now he's being held out of practice. Ginn was observed with a limp at practice by Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, but he was not wearing a boot or walking on crutches, which is probably a good sign that he's still in the mix to play this weekend.
If Ginn can't go, expect the youngster Kyle Williams to take over Ginn's return duties and be the next option for Alex Smith and the 49ers passing game.
Here's a full list of injuries for both teams in their latest practice report.
