Two key players remained out of San Francisco 49ers practice for the second straight day: wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. and running back Brandon Jacobs.
Ginn, the 49ers' main return specialist and at times a factor in the passing game, has an ankle injury. The 49ers will give the reps to Kyle Williams in practice as punt returner, and LaMichael James, the rookie from Oregon, is another return man option. James returned kicks a few times for the Ducks, especially when the Ducks needed a long return.
Jacobs has a knee injury, but if the bruising runner can't play Sunday against the Green Bay Packers, the 49ers still have Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and James available at running back.
The Packers are still without running back James Starks in practice, and have a host of other players on their injury report Thursday. All the injury status updates from Thursday are here.
