Ginn, Jacobs inactive again for 49ers; Bakhtiari in uniform

Receivers Ted Ginn and A.J. Jenkins, and running backs Brandon Jacobs and LaMichael James are among the inactive #49ers for today's game against the Vikings. The others are: quarterback Scott Tolzien, guard Joe Looney and nose tackle Ian Williams.

Ginn, who sprained his ankle in the 49ers' third preseason game, returned to practice on a limited basis this past week. However, he still is not 100 percent. Kyle Williams will handle punt returns for the fourth straight game.

The inactives means that newly signed outside linebacker Eric Bakhtiari is active as is rookie tight end Garrett Celek. Celek and safety Trenton Robinson are the only rookies active for the 49ers. Bakhtiari could see work on a the 49ers' coverage units, which have been shaky over the first two weeks.

For the Vikings, Marvin Mitchell will start at inside linebacker for Erin Henderson, who is out with a concussion. The other Vikings inactives are QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson (Sacramento State), WR Jarius Wright, CB Brandon Burton, S Robert Blanton, G Mark Asper, DE D'Aundre Reed.
