YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -- The 49ers on Friday left the comforts of their home away from home for the short flight to New Jersey, where they will face the New York Jets on Sunday.The 49ers practiced this week at Youngstown State University, as as they did a year ago, rather than make back-to-back trips from the Bay Area. The 49ers are coming off a 24-13 loss at the Minnesota Vikings."Very good, and very similar," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said of the week in Ohio, comparing it to last year's trip. "We have a lot of people to thank."Harbaugh cited the people of the Youngstown area, the staff at the Holiday Inn in Boardman, where the team spent five nights, and the folks in the Youngstown State athletic department."Everybody couldn't have been nicer," said Harbaugh, who added that the team demonstrated "good concentration and very good work" during the week of preparation to face the Jets.INJURY REPORT: For the fourth week in a row, the 49ers list receiver Ted Ginn (right ankle) and running back Brandon Jacobs (left knee) as "questionable." Neither has been active for a game this season."They're both coming along very well," Harbaugh said.Neither has made it through a full week of practice, though. Both were limited this week. Typically, teams want players coming off injuries that have kept them sidelined for weeks to go through a full week of practice before returning to action.NEWS: 49ers-Jets injury reports -- Sopoaga questionable, Hill doubtful
Kyle Williams has handled punt returns, and last week replaced Kendall Hunter on kickoffs. Ginn was one of the top returners in the league last season. When asked what role Williams will fill when Ginn returns to action, Harbaugh said, "That's something that we'll assess and won't reveal."Tight end Vernon Davis (back) was added to the injury list. He did not miss any practice time and will play in Sunday's game.
