The San Francisco 49ers might not have two of their offensive weapons available in their season opener at Lambeau Field against the Green Bay Packers. Both Ted Ginn Jr. and Brandon Jacobs are listed as questionable for the season opener. David Fucillo of Niners Nation has this report:
The one moderately useful bit of news is that running back Brandon Jacobs and wide receiver/returner Ted Ginn Jr. will both be listed as questionable. Both will fly with the team, giving the team 48 hours to see if they can get healthy quickly. I would imagine the 49ers will not see them playing, even with the players traveling. Anything is possible, but with no practice time and given the injuries involved, a few more days of rest are likely just what the doctor would order.
Right now neither 49er is listed as one of the main offensive contributors; none of them are currently listed on the two-deep. Jacobs is a fourth-stringer on the running back depth chart, trailing Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James.
Ginn is currently listed as one of the third-string wide receivers along with A.J. Jenkins, behind Kyle Williams and Mario Manningham (the second-string wide receivers). He is also the third-string punt returner and kick returner, with James the second-stringer on both units.
The good news is that both appear to still be participating in individual conditioning, as Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News reports.
