49ers’ Willis, Ginn out; Seattle’s Baldwin plays

Linebacker Patrick Willis and wide receiver Ted Ginn Jr. are
inactive for San Francisco, while Seattle’s leading receiver,
rookie Doug Baldwin, is playing despite a sore ankle.

Willis missed his third straight game with a hamstring injury
Saturday, while Ginn was sidelined with an injured ankle. In the
season opener, Ginn returned a kickoff and punt for touchdowns late
in the fourth quarter of San Francisco’s 33-17 win over the
Seahawks.

The 49ers were also without backup cornerback Tramaine Smith.
Wide receiver Braylon Edwards, who was questionable with a knee
injury, was active.

Seattle’s biggest question was Baldwin, who aggravated an ankle
injury in practice this week. Baldwin went through early pregame
work and was healthy enough to go. The undrafted rookie out of
Stanford leads Seattle with 46 catches.
