San Francisco 49ers Injury Report
|Frank Gore||Running Back||Coaches Decision||DNP|
|Walt Harris||Cornerback||Coaches Decision||DNP|
Jennings once again will not play… can this guy ever stay healthy? I feel bad for the man because I highly doubt that he enters each season with the goal of being hurt and missing games but there comes a point when a team has to think about cutting its losses. The 49ers might be reaching that point with Jonas this season.
Spencer is a tough loss but I have every confidence that Tarell Brown can come in again and do a great job in his stead. He blanketed his assignment last week against Detroit and even came away with a pick after reading Kitna and getting a great jump on the ball. He should be fine.
The Lewis’s, Johnson, Goldson, Strickland, Gore and Harris should all play with the one question being Strickland possibly. Although Keith Lewis might be at issue as well.
Opponents’ Injury Report

|Aaron Stecker||Running Back||Hamstring||LP|
|Antwan Lake||Defensive tackle||Groin||LP|
Talk about the walking wounded, the Saints are hurting at receiver and offensive line in particular and their secondary is extremely suspect at this point of the season. Not having Colston or Shockey and now with Patten possibly missing this Sunday’s contest as well New Orleans is going to be relying heavily on Reggie Bush and Devry Henderson to get things going on offense.
If the 49ers can give O’Sullivan time in the pocket he could put up some big numbers against the Saints depleted and beleaguered defense. Gore should also be able to post a good day on the ground if he can get through to the second level.
If ever there was a time that the Saints were ripe for a defeat it is now, couple that with the confidence this San Francisco squad has after two-straight wins and you have a recipe for what could very well be another 49er victory.
Or the team could fall flat on their faces and allow Bush to completely tear them up, we’ll find out this weekend.
