Ted Ginn's Injury Expected To Keep Him Out Of Giants-49ers Game, According To Report

The San Francisco 49ers are not expected to have Ted Ginn for Sunday's NFC Championship game against the New York Giants, according to a report from Pro Football Talk. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said on Friday that there's a chance Ginn could play but PFT reports that's not expected to be the case.

Ginn missed practice all week with the knee injury and he was listed as questionable entering the game. The 49ers host the Giants at 6:30 p.m. (ET) in the NFC Championship game.

The loss of Ginn may mean slightly more of a reliance on Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree, which wouldn't be such a bad thing. Ginn's best skill comes as a return man which the 49ers will miss.

Ginn is in a contract year so that he could miss the biggest game of the season (so far) has to be disappointing for him. The 49ers will release their inactives around 5:00 p.m. (ET). Perhaps Ginn could be active in an emergency role.
