Receiver Ted Ginn appears to be the 49ers' biggest injury concern. Ginn is questionable for the NFC title game after sustaining a right knee injury on Saturday. Ginn was injured when New Orleans Saints linebacker Martez Wilson shoved him to the ground within the legal 5-yard contact zone on a crossing route in the second quarter.
Ginn landed hard on his kneecap and got up slowly. He was in on the next play, but was clearly hobbled. Kyle Williams replaced Ginn as the No. 2 receiver and on punt returns. Receiver Brett Swain became the No. 3 receiver.

The fact that Green Bay wide receiver James Jones has two of the team's three fumbles, including one in each of the last two games, hasn't landed him in the coaches' doghouse.
"Nobody's mad at James," said Jimmy Robinson, who coaches the team's wide receivers. "Guys have a bad play now and then. Hopefully, not too many of them."
Nevertheless, the Packers intend to start playing Jordy Nelson more. In three games, Greg Jennings leads the corps of wideouts with 139 snaps followed by Donald Driver with 136, Jones with 96, Nelson with 67 and Brett Swain with one.
Both Nelson and Jones are among the better backup receivers in the league, and if something happened to Jennings or Driver, their value would increase rapidly.

Jermichael Finley had a knee sprain and will be a "long shot" for Sunday's game against Minnesota, but he will be given full week to take a shot at getting ready. Will be highly limited in practice. DB Derrick Martin had a hamstring strain, likely will miss some practice time this week. WR Brett Swain will have season-ending knee surgery. "Very unfortunate for Brett."

Packers battle at tight end
Wednesday, July 8, 2009, 2:44pm
There will be another intriguing position battle at tight end, where up-and-coming youngster Jermichael Finley could unseat Donald Lee as the starter. Philbin said Finley is much improved from his rookie season in 2008.
"Jermichael is a much better player," Philbin said. "A year ago he was a 21-year-old kid from Texas. He didn’t know first base from third base. And so, he’s just a much different guy. He’s walking around the building like a different person. We’re excited, he’s making very good progress."
