Morning folks, I'll be your tour guide today ... the list of inactives for today's game against the Lions just came out, and there's no big surprises at all. The 49ers still have significant absences, like wide receiver Braylon Edwards and fullback Moran Norris, but both of them are expected and, again, not a surprise. Michael Crabtree is looking for a big day with Edwards' absence and Josh Morgan's trip to injured reserve, as is Delanie Walker. Bruce Miller will once again get the start at fullback.
For the Lions, the only significant absence is Justin Durant, and that means Bobby Carpenter will get the start in his place. Will Heller is there in place of Tony Scheffler, but all of this was expected. Honestly, I can't even tell you who two of those guys are. The other thing of note for the 49ers is that wide receiver Brett Swain is active, shortly after being signed.
