49ers will face depleted secondary

September, 8, 2013
SAN FRANCISCO -- The story of the week leading up to Sunday’s Green Bay Packers-San Francisco 49ers meeting was how much 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will get hit with the ball as a runner in the read-option offense.

But how much will Kaepernick even run the ball? The Green Bay secondary is beat up. The headliner among inactives Sunday was Green Bay safety Morgan Burnett. He joins cornerback Casey Hayward as key Green Bay secondary members who will not play.

Burnett is being replaced in the starting lineup by Jerron McMillian.There weren’t many other inactive decisions of note. Here are the complete inactives for both teams:

Packers: CB Casey Hayward, S Morgan Burnett LB Nate Palmer, LB Sam Barrington, G Lane Taylor, TE Brandon Bostick, DE Josh Boyd

49ers: QB B.J. Daniels, WR Chris Harper, RB LaMichael James, FB Will Tukuafu, LB Nate Stupar, G Joe Looney, WR Jon Baldwin
