The Lions will have to hold down the 49ers vast array of No. 1 receivers without their No. 1 cornerback.
Chris Houston was on the inactive list for tonight’s game, not yet ready to return from a sprained ankle.
The 49ers won’t get much from their rookie class tonight, as their top two picks are inactive.
Wide receiver A.J. Jenkins and running back LaMichael James were among the seven as well, along with injured running back Brandon Jacobs (knee) and return man Ted Ginn, guard Joe Looney, tight end Garrett Celek and nose tackle Ian Williams.
