Niners prep for Packers with four players missing practice

The first practice report isn’t due until Wednesday, so the 49ers have no obligation to provide any official information about their injuries until then.

Unofficially, they’ve got several question marks as they prepare to avoid chasing a 13-3 season with an 0-1 start.

Cam Inman of reports that, as the team practiced on Saturday, eight days before a Week One test at Lambeau Field against the Packers, four players were missing:  running back Brandon Jacobs, linebacker Parys Haralson, receiver Ted Ginn, and receiver Mario Manningham.

Haralson missed practice on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday; coach Jim Harbaugh said Haralson is “working through something.”

Jacobs has a knee injury, Ginn has an ankle injury, and Manningham left the team a week ago after the death of his grandfather.

    Man oh man is it gonna be fun to see SF go back to reality. I hope Green Bay routs ’em.

    Jacobs = no big deal, still have two other RBs. Haralson = no big deal if Aldon Smith plays. Ted Ginn = unfortunate, love to have him returning punts and kickoffs. Manningham = at least it’s not an injury, give him as much time as he needs to grieve and come back to play a game for his grandfather.

    I can’t believe this isn’t a primetime game. I hope it’s on tv where I live at least.

    Get healthy guys! Even if you played, your team would lose by three Touchdowns.

    Gonna be a bloodbath at Lambeau. 49ers realize they made the wrong #1 choice in draft several years back. Such a blunder. 9ers are nothing but an 11-5 team this year.

    Go Pack MFers!

    Packers are going to smoke the 49ers anyway. If I were the coach I’d just let them rest and come back in week 2.

  7. superseahawk says: Sep 2, 2012 12:37 AM


    Is 11-5 a bad thing? The Niners have earned this Seahawks fan’s respect, and after Week One, they may have yours as well.

  8. citynative says: Sep 2, 2012 12:40 AM


    You know that former Niners OC & current Packers head coach Mike McCarthy had heavy input in that decision and wanted Alex Smith dont you?

  9. vienners says: Sep 2, 2012 12:53 AM

    I am surprised to see MF writes a Niners post without disparaging them. Good job Mike!!!!

    any logical 49ers fan knows more than 10 wins is a very successful season. I expect them to struggle into the playoffs. just get into the dance and win the west is what I want.

  11. 4evrnyt says: Sep 2, 2012 1:36 AM

    9ers are nothing but an 11-5 team this year.
    Right, instead of being a 15-1 team that bow’s out in their first playoff game? (first team to ever win 15 games and not win a playoff game by the way, well done you guys. You made history!)

    11-5 and a SB sounds fine to me.

  12. cali49er707 says: Sep 2, 2012 2:02 AM

    @Voiceofreason Its funny to read some of the “Back to Reality” comments by some of you clowns!!! You do realize that history has shown that reality for the 9ER fanbase is countless division titles, consecutive playoff appearances stretching for more then a decade, Superbowl Championships & watching some the greatest players to have ever played in the NFL!!! So yea reality sound pretty GREAT to me!!!!

  13. fukallusernamesaretaken says: Sep 2, 2012 2:02 AM

    This will be one hell of a game. If GB can protect they’ll win. That is a big if with the thoroughbreds the niners have. Welcome back real football!

  14. meytonpanning says: Sep 2, 2012 2:04 AM

    This is gonna be such a fun game to watch.

    I think it calls for a texas mickey. 🙂

  15. mikeb4u says: Sep 2, 2012 2:15 AM

    The 49’ers are going to crush the smoke and mirror packers. Besides, the packers still suck!

  16. sixjak says: Sep 2, 2012 3:30 AM

    Oh gee the 9ers might as well tuck their tails between their legs and head for the hills. Umm this is essentially the same team that got man handled by the Giants just months ago. A week after that the Giants and SF went into overtime. So there’s a bit of very recent history for you fortune tellers. I’m not projecting a win but a bloodbath? Really? I think SF’s defense matches up better to GB’s offense much better than GB’s defense matches up to SF’s offense. I predict it’ll be a very good game and not a very high scoring one.

    Must be Gregg Williams’ fault

  18. erndogg209 says: Sep 2, 2012 4:25 AM

    the niners gonna get smashed on regardless! that o-line is weak! when i seen Manning kill that defense in 12 minutes! i sense trouble in sf this yeae

  19. jimmysee says: Sep 2, 2012 6:24 AM

    An early-season test for Green Bay and San Francisco. Lot of water under the bridge since ‘Niners made that pick.

    Outcome will speak volumes about where this season will go for both teams.

  20. youarewrongandthisiswhy says: Sep 2, 2012 6:46 AM

    Packers, Saints, 49ers and Giants are the elite of the NFC.

    Nobody else matters.

  21. greglandry says: Sep 2, 2012 8:10 AM

    Interesting matchup between the high scoring Packers and the smashmouth 49ers at Lambeau….A Rodg wants to light it up, but 49ers are ready to get after #12. This will be no cake walk for the soft Packers.

  22. briank1ne says: Sep 2, 2012 9:35 AM

    The only one dimensional team here is the packers. Gonna be a lot of quiet mouths after this one. Rodgers will be ddt’d by justind and Aldon smith. While the hawk will be circling the secondary and whitner ready to pop any wannabe Pierre Thomas that comes his way. Bowman and Willis will take care of any weak run game the pack has left. I’m calling 28-18 niners. Besides didn’t the packers lose the last 2 out of 4 games they played? The niners are bringing back old school smashmouth football and Alex smith gets a better qbr than rodgers. If you’re betting…take the under. Niners covered it almost every game last yr.

  23. tntmlm says: Sep 2, 2012 9:50 AM

    I’ll be at the game but working consessions. 49ers are goin down! Go ahead & make ur snide remarks but remember this. The Packers are 13x world champs. AND the SBs u guys won…..checkout the name on the SB trophy. Vince Lombardi….Former Green Bay Packers head coach. Now go sit in the corner suck your thumb & be quiet. Rodgers was 6 TDs shy of throwing for 3x yes 3x as many TDs as your little Alex Smith. GO PACK GO!!!

  24. tntmlm says: Sep 2, 2012 9:57 AM

    Briank1ne, u must be so high your on the moon if you honestly think Smith is a better QB than Rodgers. It’s b/c of your D u guys made it so far. Look at the stats. Alex avg’d 1 TD per game last yr. Rodgers threw as many as 5 in one game. That’s almost 1/2 the season for Smith. 28-17 Packers

  25. tntmlm says: Sep 2, 2012 10:02 AM

    Hey 4evrnyt. Last time I checked the 9ers butts were on the couch during the SB also. Maybe u need to read my comment about th SB trophy a couple msgs up. I guys have a part of Green Bay Packer history. 13x World Champions Green Bay Packers

  26. houndog50 says: Sep 2, 2012 10:08 AM

    @binkystevens and brianekine,

    Looking past or disrespecting either one of these of these pushovers you guys are imagining would make one (or both of you) fools.

    Does your moms know you’re on her computer again?

  27. chi01town says: Sep 2, 2012 10:17 AM

    The 49ers gone smoke Greenbay because they are a weak team with
    no running game an a bad defense

  28. 4evrnyt says: Sep 2, 2012 11:53 AM

    Hey tntmlm

    Last time I checked you guys won 15 games and then spent the rest of the year on the couch watching us advance farther then you.

    I’m sorry, which team has won more super bowls over it’s history?

    Keep trying.

  29. bh49ers says: Sep 2, 2012 12:03 PM

    this is going to be a tough close game between 2 great teams. you have the #1 def vs #1 off , that will be fun to watch. but i have to give the edge to the 49ers bc the 49er offense is way better than the greenbay defense. its to close to call who is going to win, but i will say who thinks this game is going to be better than the Ravens vs Bengals Primetime game!!!!???

  30. redandgoldhitman52 says: Sep 2, 2012 1:37 PM

    49ers win 23-10
    arron rodgers will throw 2 ints and gets sacked 4 times

  31. Revolution22 says: Sep 2, 2012 2:10 PM

    Woodson will blanket Moss. Williams will blanket whoever the hell their 2nd WR is. I think Hawk and Petty can handle Vernon Davis, but that TE scares the crap out of me. Our Defense is better this year, and Rodgers is Rodgers. So many weapons, so little time.

    Packers by 10.

  32. chi01town says: Sep 3, 2012 12:28 AM

    Packers fans dont forget RANDY the Greenbay Killer MOSS is a 49er this season. an the Packers are looking like they are out sink right now.

  33. briank1ne says: Sep 3, 2012 12:43 AM


    Why do you think that Alex couldn’t have a better qbr than rodgers in this game. He’s a great QB. But he will be facing a very pissed off defense. Greenbays defense for that matter was one of the worst last year. A couple sacks. A couple picks…and rodgers qbr plummets. There is also one other thing to think about. Smith had a better qbr than drew brees when they played. You’ll see come Sunday…lol

  34. longhairdontcare66 says: Sep 4, 2012 7:58 AM

    49ers are a good team without those players. I’m a packers fan and the physical style the 49ers play with is what worries me the most. If they get to Aaron consistently we can def lose this game. But as always if we play our game we can’t be beat.
