Eagles challenge: Stop Ted Ginn

Special teams coach Bobby April says Ted Ginn, the Niners' kick returner, "is about as good as it gets."

Ginn has a kick return for a TD this year with the Niners and is always a threat to break a long one.

Ginn also plays wide receiver, however, which could lessen his impact returning kicks later in games.

With Brandon Hughes out, rookie Curtis Marshall is likely to be activated Sunday. Safety Jai Jarrett (Temple) is getting close to playing in his first game per April. 

April intends to continue using DeSean Jackson as his primary punt returner, with Jeremy Maclin taking a turn when DJack is fatigued.

April also is looking forward to the return of kicker David Akers, who he coached. Akers is the all-time Eagles scoring leader.

"We can't wish him too much good luck," April said.
