The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants released their inactive lists for Sunday's game and there are a few interesting notes for each team. Most notable for the 49ers is the fact that defensive end Ray McDonald is active for the game. I would imagine he will get the start at left defensive and Ricky Jean Francois will return to the bench as the primary backup defensive lineman. If McDonald starts and aggravates his hamstring injury, RJF would be the first man off the bench.
The Giants inactives do NOT include Mario Manningham or Hakeem Nicks, which means both will be active. The extent of their snaps remains to be seen, but both will be available in some form or fashion for QB Eli Manning. Here is a rundown of both teams' inactive lists for Sunday's huge NFC showdown.
49ers: QB Scott Tolzien, WR Brett Swain, CB Shawntae Spencer, FB Moran Norris, OL Daniel Kilgore, OL Mike Person, NT Ian Williams.
Giants: RB Ahmad Bradshaw, WR Jerrel Jernigan, OL Mitch Petrus, OL James Brewer, CB Prince Amukamara, DT Dwayne Hendricks, FB Henry Hynoski.
