The San Francisco 49ers enter this weekend’s rematch of last season’s NFC Championship Game against the New York Giants healthy. The team had three players listed on their injury report, but all are expected to play. Alex Smith sprained a finger on his throwing hand last weekend against the Buffalo Bills, but it didn’t hamper him this week during practice. Smith figures to be full-go as he attempts to continue his impressive 2012 campaign this weekend against the G-Men. Backup running back Brandon Jacobs practiced fully all week and is lining up to get an opportunity to take on his former club this weekend. He had missed time due to a knee injury earlier this season, but he’s expected to return against the Giants. 49ers punter Andy Lee was the only other player listed, but he’s been able to play through a hand injury this season and will continue to do so.
