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 BayAreaNewsGroup.com 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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. @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!!!!

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!!!

  12. 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

  13. 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

  14. @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?

  15. 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.

  16. 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!!!!???

  17. 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.

  18. @tntmlm

    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

  19. 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.
