Heap out for Ravens; Bajema out for 49ers

Just found out the inactives for today's game, and the biggest news is that Ravens tight end Todd Heap will not play. This is good news for the 49ers, of course, because their best tight-end stopper, Manny Lawson, is out for the season.
The bad news is that the 49ers' own tight end, Billy Bajema, also is out with a sprained ankle. That leaves Delanie Walker as the team's only healthy tight end. Or does it? Patrick Estes is active for the game, and he will be wearing No. 88. Hmmmm.
The other 49ers inactives are Tarell Brown, Jason Jill, Tony Wragge, Vernon Davis, Jonas Jennings, Atiyyah Ellison and Alex Smith. The bright spot about Smith -- he was seen making eight-yard throws before the game. Again, maybe his return for the Giants game two weeks from today isn't so absurd after all.
Also out for Baltimore are QB Troy Smith, CB Samari Rolle, CB David Pittman, T Jonathan Ogden, TE Daniel Wilcox, DT Trevor Pryce and LB Edgar Jones.
