The 49ers and Bengals released their final injury reports for Sunday's game and there aren't any real surprises. Michael Crabtree's bothersome foot has him as probable so hopefully he's officially good to go. I don't think we can get any guarantees that the foot won't suffer a re-aggravation at some point, but I just hope he thinks it's 100% right now.
Dashon Goldson is not even listed on the injury report. He has been a full participant in practice and looks ready to go for Sunday. I'm curious how the team mixes and matches Goldson, Madieu Williams and Reggie Smith in the secondary. Donte Whitner is pretty much locked in at the strong safety position. While the two safety positions can be mixed and matched to some degree, you've basically got three guys who have been the "starter" at free safety at some point over the last two months.
Coach Harbaugh was asked before practice about if there would be any lineup changes in the secondary and he responded with "We'll see. Yeah, we'll see." Not exactly a shocking answer and leaves us pondering who will be playing where on Sunday. Any thoughts on how it should play out in the secondary? Shawntae Spencer will also be available so as much as half the secondary could conceivably see some changes.
