It looks like the 49ers have both Brandon Jacobs and Ted Ginn available this weekend against the New York Jets. The bad news is it is being reported that Isaac Sopoaga will not play on Sunday.
It should not come as a surprise that Jacobs is back in time for the New York Jets, I’m sure he has had this game circled on his calendar all season. With Jacobs back he should be able to help pound the ball against the Jets who this season are not good against the run. Ginn’s return on the other hand will be interesting considering his backup Kyle Williams has been handling both punt and kick returns well in his absence. Will be interesting to see how the team uses Ginn this weekend.
The injury to Sopoaga will hurt the team, but hopefully Ricky Jean-Francois steps up and fills the void they will be missing with Sopoaga sidelined.

MONKEY ON YOUR BACK
Delanie Walker has spent 6+ seasons with the 49ers playing a variety of positions: WR, TE & fullback. The guy is an NFL survivor. A 6th round pick out of Central Missouri, this guy should be out of the league by now. Walker shouldn’t have been able to hang around this long. Then again, when you’re a “Mother******* beast” (his words) you stick around in the NFL.
Last week: 9 (+1)
The loss in Minnesota was not unpredictable. Minnesota is an underrated team and it was to be expected that the 49ers would be flat against a “bad” opponent after being anointed after 2 weeks. The loss has allowed them to fall back to earth, which is what they needed, and they should be able to get a bounce back win in New York against the Jets this...

It was not the sunniest of days for the San Francisco 49ers.
Still, coach Jim Harbaugh refused to let a daylong rain dampen plans to get the 49ers' offense untracked Wednesday.
Still smarting from a 24-13 loss at Minnesota on Sunday, Harbaugh directed a morning walkthough on the rain-slickened asphalt of a hotel parking lot. Then practice took place in rain at their home-away...

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Patrick Willis participated in Wednesday’s practice after suffering a leg injury during last Sunday’s loss to the Vikings.
It looks like Willis will be good to go for Sunday’s game against the Jets.
49ERS vs. JETS (Sun Sept 30 1 PM ET)
The 49ers are coming off a loss to the Vikings and now they face a Jets team that is 2-1, but lost defensive leader CB Darrellle Revis in their last game. The Jets did win their last game, but it went to OT and was against the weak Dolphins.

Coach Jim Harbaugh wants the San Francisco 49ers to get focused, avoid obstacles and get back to winning.
San Francisco 49ers (2-1) at New York Jets (2-1)
Remember how the Jets’ chance to make the playoffs was on the conservative offense, good defense, don’t make mistakes, easy schedule model? Yeah, that doesn’t work if you can’t play good defense and without Darrelle Revis, they’re going to have a hard time doing so many of the things they normally do on defense. They also...
The San Francisco 49ers defense was looking like the best in the NFL by leaps-and-bounds, but they looked human against the Minnesota Vikings of all teams.
It was remarkable since Jim Harbaugh always struggled in the Metrodome, and history clearly repeated itself as they were stunned on the road 24-13.

Before Monday night's "Inaccurate Reception" debacle, the biggest story of Week 3 was San Francisco’s shocking loss to the Minnesota Vikings.The 49ers were shut down on offense, and Christian Ponder and company had their way with what is supposed to be one of the best defenses in the NFL.The Jets are coming off a 3-point victory, in overtime, over division rival Miami...
Do you think Rex Ryan gets a little green with envy when preparing for Jim Harbaugh's San Francisco 49ers?Since his introduction as Jets head coach prior to the 2010 season, Ryan has envisioned his team in a certain way: defensively labeled as a hard-nosed, smash-mouth unit that creates turnovers and beats up the quarterback -- and if they put a few players on their ass, no one...
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh says both Patrick Willis and Isaac Sopoaga are doing fine after suffering leg injuries during Sunday’s loss to the Vikings.
“It turned out good for both of those guys,” Harbaugh said.
Looks like the Niners dodged a bullet, since both Willis and Sopoaga should be fine for this week’s game against the Jets.
