Ted Ginn not expected to play

Divisional Playoffs - New Orleans Saints v San Francisco 49ers Getty Images

49ers return specialist Ted Ginn, an impending free agent who could make a lot of money for himself with a big return or two tonight against the Giants, officially will be a game-time decision, due to a knee injury suffered last Saturday against the Saints.

Per a league source, the decision is expected to be that Ginn won’t play.

Before the season, Ginn re-worked his contract to take less money for 2011.  In exchange, the final year of the six-year rookie deal he signed in 2007 was thrown out.

The ninth overall pick by the Dolphins that year, Ginn was traded to San Fran in 2010.  At times a potent return specialist, he has been a Desmond Howard-style disappointment as a receiver.  Through five seasons, he’s averaging nearly 32 catches and nearly 410 yards per year, and as many career receiving touchdowns as return touchdowns — six.

    In other news.

    Visiting hours at the Corcoran, San Quenten and Folsom institutions are canceled for today.

    All inmates will be at the game, courtesy of the 49er organization.

    The team stated they wanted their best fans at the game to give a true “home field advantage” so they are bussing their”12th men”

    That’s bad news for the Giants, great news for the 49ers.

    People forget the Giants lost one seriously underated return man in Dominick Hixon. I HATE to see injuries but they happen and in this case both teams are now even in that regard.

    Every punt and kick off return today will be an adventure. One turnover could change the outcome. Too bad Ginn and Hixon are out. I prefer seeing the best.

    Though certainly not as explosive, Kyle Williams has done a decent job in the return game in Ginn’s absence.
