The San Francisco 49ers have released their list of inactives for the NFC Championship Game, and one big inactive is wide receiver Ted Ginn. Ginn has been returning kicks for the 49ers most of the season, but his knee injury will keep him out against the New York Giants. This could leave the Niners with only Michael Crabtree as a reliable receiver on the outside to complement Vernon Davis.
Ginn's inactive status means Joe Hastings will be active. He spent most of the season on the practice squad. Hastings was active Week 17 against the Rams.
Good news for the 49ers is that Delanie Walaker is active. Walker will be crucial with Ginn out to keep the ball moving on the ground for the 49ers with his blocking and pass-catching.
Here's the full list of inactives for the 49ers.
QB Scott Tolzien, WR Ted Ginn, CB Shawntae Spencer, FB Moran Norris, G Daniel Kilgore, G Mike Person, NT Ian Williams
