The 49ers and Saints released their final injury reports for Saturday and it is mildly amusing that tight end Delanie Walker is listed as questionable. That is not to say that I am amused by his injury, but Jim Harbaugh continues to use the weekly injury report to his advantage as much as possible. Whether a guy has practiced all week or not at all, questionable has been the category of choice for the most part.
Delanie Walker did not practice this week, Coach Harbaugh indicated he would be re-assessed on Monday, and even said he didn't think Delanie would play on Saturday. The questionable designation is for players in the 50-50 range. Given how teams often play with the injury report, I suppose it shouldn't be surprising. And maybe it is entirely possible that he will play tomorrow. I don't think he does, but maybe Coach Harbaugh has been playing games in the reverse direction this week.
Either way, here's my favorite tweet of the day:
