The 49ers and Vikings have released their inactive lists and it looks like Garrett Celek and Eric Bakhtiari will be active today. Although Ted Ginn did get in some work this week, it was not enough to convince the 49ers to give him a shot returning kicks and punts. Kyle Williams and Kendall Hunter will be back deep once again.
It will be interesting to see how the 49ers elect to use Celek outside of special teams work. The 49ers obviously enjoy their heavy packages, but they have seemed content going with extra linemen in such packages. Bakhtiari is active in his first game back replacing suspended Clark Haggans. The 49ers will likely be playing in more of their base defense against the run-first Vikings. Bakhtiari will likely get special teams work, but with Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks looking sharp so far, I don't imagine Bakhtiari will get much time with the defense.
