The Saints will be without a tight end and a safety because of concussions, but it appears the 49ers will get theirs back for Sunday’s game between NFC heavyweights.
According to Larry Holder of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro and tight end Benjamin Watson have been ruled out of Sunday’s game because of concussions suffered last week.
Their counterparts with the 49ers, who also suffered concussions last week, are still on track to play. Safety Eric Reid and tight end Vernon Davis, were limited in practice Friday, and listed as questionable.
They still need to be cleared by an independent neurologist, but coach Jim Harbaugh said he expected them to be able to play this week. Defensive tackle Ray McDonald is out with an ankle injury.
