NFL Playoffs: San Francisco 49ers vs. New Orleans Saints Final Injury Report

The San Francisco 49ers released their final injury report on Friday before their clash with the New Orleans Saints today. The report listed five players that were all listed as questionable, leaving it up to the public (and the Saints) who will play and who will sit in the 49ers' first playoff game in nine seasons.

The list included TE Delanie Walker, WR Ted Ginn, CB Chris Culliver, DT Ray McDonald and WR Kyle Williams. Again, all listed as questionable.

Off the bat, it looks like Walker will be out against the Saints on Saturday, although Walker was really never in the game-plan for the 49ers.

Those who will play are also fairly obvious. Ginn is sure to play through his ankle injury that has kept him out the last two weeks. McDonald, who participated in drills this last week of practice, said he is ready to go and will play on Saturday.

That leaves two players up in the air that could provide significant depth to the 49ers against the Saints. Culliver is still nursing that knee to go along with an illness, but the's Kevin Lynch feels he will be ready to go. San Francisco needs all the depth they can get in the secondary against New Orleans.

Williams is another player up in the air that Lynch sees playing. Williams has been out since the Week 16 incident in Seattle. Although he was in a no-contact jersey the entire week, we can expect him to play and provide necessary depth at receiver and kicker returner this afternoon.
