SF activates Reid, Davis, Manningham vs. Saints

San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis, safety Eric Reid and wide

receiver Mario Manningham are active for Sunday’s game against New

Orleans after being listed as questionable Friday.

Davis and Reid both are returning from concussions during last

week’s loss to Carolina, while Manningham was listed as limited in

practice throughout the week because of a knee injury.

The Saints had already ruled out two of their players who had

concussions last weekend: safety Kenny Vaccaro and tight end

Benjamin Watson. The Saints also have scratched running back Khiry

Robinson and defensive tackle Tyrunn Walker. However, safety Roman

Harper returned to the lineup after missing seven games with a knee


Those deactivated by San Francisco include tight end Garrett

Celek, who was doubtful with a hamstring injury, as well as

linebacker Nick Moody and guard Joe Looney.
