49ers Missing Two WRs as Green Bay Week Begins

The 49ers began practicing for Week 1 opponent Green Bay today without two of their wide receivers. Ted Ginn still is recovering from an ankle injury suffered Sunday in Denver while Mario Manningham is mourning the death of his grandfather in Ohio. The funeral service was held Thursday.

Also missing were Parys Haralson and Brandon Jacobs. Jacobs is still out with the knee injury. Haralson's injury is unknown, and his absence meant that the only two healthy outside linebackers on the 53-man roster are Ahmad Brooks and Aldon Smith. Cam Johnson is on the practice squad.

On the positive side, Demarcus Dobbs (leg bruise) was back at practice, even though he wore the black "no-contact" jersey. If the 49ers were short on outside linebackers, Dobbs at least could fill in as a third-down pass rusher.

Linebackers Aldon Smith and  NaVorro Bowman were also back at practice.
