The only rookie who will suit up for the 49ers is tight end Garrett Celek, who went undrafted out of Michigan State.
Receiver A.J. Jenkins and running back LaMichael James, both of whom are healthy, are inactive. Neither has played in a regular-season game for the 49ers. Jenkins and James were selected in the first two rounds of the draft.With Ginn active, it remains to be seen who will handle the return duties. Kyle Williams averaged 13.0 yards on four punt returns in the first three games. He also averaged 48.0 yards on three kickoff returns.49ers inactives
