The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers released their final injury reports, and we have a little bit of a surprise addition. The Packers added free safety Morgan Burnett as questionable. Burnett was a scratch from Friday's practice with some kind of hamstring issue. He practiced Wednesday and Thursday. Mike McCarthy reportedly said the DNP was more precautionary than anything.

The 49ers will be without the services of LaMichael James, while Nnamdi Asomugha would seem a strong bet to play as the team's third corner. It is worth noting the media saw James moving without crutches or a limp during Friday's practice session. He did not participate in practice, but walking like normal would certainly seem like a bit of good news. He is still potentially looking at a three-week recovery, but this is a step forward.

Questionable: CB Nnamdi Asomugha (collarbone), RB LaMichael James (knee)

Out: CB Casey Hayward (hamstring)
Questionable: S Morgan Burnett (hamstring), LB Brad Jones (hamstring)
