Ginn injured ankle; does not return

Ted Ginn, who's absence at the end of the 2011 season had huge ramifications for the 49ers, left Sunday's game with a right ankle injury and did not return. Ginn hobbled off the field after gaining nine yards on an end around in the third quarter.

He limped into the x-ray room and did not return. Kyle Williams took over punt return duties and fielded four punts cleanly for the 49ers. If Ginn does not recover in time for the Sept. 9 season opener in Green Bay, Williams would return punts while Kendall Hunter likely would handle kick returns.
