The 49ers, as expected, only have one kicker active for today's game, and that kicker is David Akers. The other kicker on the roster, Billy Cundiff, is one of the seven inactive players as the 49ers open the playoffs today against the Packers.
In the last few games, the only active player who hasn't seen the field for the 49ers has been the backup quarterback, Alex Smith. The 49ers also have question marks at defensive line. Justin Smith will start at his familiar right defensive end position, but he is dealing with a partially torn triceps tendon. How long Smith can play today is unknown.
Also active is defensive end/fullback Will Tukuafu, who is dealing with a neck injury. Tukuafu missed the regular-season finale against the Cardinals.
The other 49ers inactives: QB Scott Tolzien, RB Jewel Hampton, G Joe Looney, S Trenton Robinson, DL Tony Jerod-Eddie and NT Ian Williams.
The inactives for the Packers are: CB Davon House, WR Jarrett Boykin, RB Alex Green, LB Frank Zombo, TE DJ Williams, DT Jordan Miller, DE Jerel Worthy
