SAN FRANCISCO -- Tight end Delanie Walker, who has yet to be cleared to resume playing after sustaining a fractured jaw on Dec. 24, is among the 49ers' seven inactive players for Saturday's game against the New Orleans Saints.Each team is allowed to suit up 46 players from their 53-man rosters. Walker is scheduled to be re-examined on Monday. If the 49ers advance to next week's NFC championship game, there's a chance he will be available.
Veteran cornerback Shawntae Spencer is also inactive. Tramaine Brock is the 49ers' fourth cornerback.

Rookie Chris Culliver, the 49ers' third cornerback, did not practice on Friday due to a stomach illness. He is expected to resume his normal duties for Saturday's game against the Saints.The Saints' most notable inactive is receiver Lance Moore, who will miss his third straight game with a hamstring strain. Safety Roman Harper was limited this week with an ankle sprain, but he is in the lineup.49ERS INACTIVES
