NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- 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 injury.

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.
