Late yesterday afternoon the 49ers and Saints released their injury reports with the only real surprise being Roman Harper's absence from practice. The 49ers side of things did not include any surprises as Delanie Walker sat out practice while he waits to be re-assessed next week. It is relatively noteworthy that Ray McDonald and Kyle Williams both got into practice, albeit in a limited form. They should be good to go for Saturday, but it's nice to see them getting work in leading up to the game.
The 49ers will seemingly deactivate Delanie Walker on Saturday and go with two tight ends on the active roster. With Kyle Williams and Ted Ginn Jr. looking good to go for Saturday, the team will need to find two players for their inactive list. Joe Hastings will likely be one of those guys and Daniel Kilgore could be the other. Brett Swain provides enough on special teams that I highly doubt he'll be inactive on Saturday.
