The San Francisco 49ers were without a few key playmakers at practice on Wednesday as running back Brandon Jacobs and wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. did not participate, while linebacker NaVorro Bowman was limited, according to CSN Bay Area's Matt Maiocco.
Jacobs remained on the shelf as he continues to deal with the right knee injury he suffered during San Francisco's Aug. 18 preseason game against the Houston Texans, which forced him to miss the 49ers' Week 1 win over the Green Bay Packers. Ginn's right ankle injury, suffered on Aug. 26 against the Denver Broncos, is still bothering him enough to keep him out of practice, as well. He, too, missed the team's Week 1 matchup, putting Kyle Williams back in the role of San Francisco's primary return man.
Maiocco tweeted that Bowman was limited today with a shoulder injury, but is expected to be ready to go come Sunday with no limitations. The All-Pro linebacker racked up 11 tackles and an interception in Sunday's win.
As for the 49ers' Week 2 opponents, the Detroit Lions, star wide receiver Calvin Johnson sat out on Wednesday, along with safety Louis Delmas (knee), cornerback Bill Bentley (concussion), defensive end Lawrence Jackson (calf) and linebacker Travis Lewis (quad). Cornerback Chris Houston (ankle) and defensive tackle Corey Williams (knee) were limited in practice.
