49ers Vs. Vikings, NFL Inactives: Erin Henderson Out For Minnesota

The San Francisco 49ers will visit the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, and both teams will have seven players each on the inactive list for the game.

For the 49ers: WR Ted Ginn Jr., RB Brandon Jacobs, RB LaMichael James, WR A.J. Jenkins, G Joe Looney, QB Scott Tolzien, NT Ian Williams.

For the Vikings: G Mark Asper, QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, CB Robert Blanton, DB Brandon Burton, OLB Erin Henderson, DE D'Aundre Reed and WR Jarius Wright.

The Niners will now have Andy Lee back as the holder for field goals. Tolzien was active for the first time last week so he could hold. Jenkins and James, the Niners' first two picks in the draft, are still yet to play this season even though Jenkins was active in Week 1. Ginn being out means that Kyle Williams will continue to field punts and Kendall Hunter will take care of the kickoffs for the Niners.

The big loss for the Vikings is Henderson. Henderson wreaked havoc in the first two games of the season, with 22 total tackles and two sacks for the Vikings. Missing him on the defensive side of the ball, especially with the Vikings having to deal with Vernon Davis, is a big loss.
