SAN FRANCISCO – Guard Mike Iupati and cornerback Tarell Brown are the only 49ers players who will not suit up due to an injury on Sunday.

Left guard Adam Snyder and cornerback Tramaine Brock will make their third consecutive starts in place of Iupati and Brown. Joe Staley, who sustained a right knee injury last week against the St. Louis Rams, will start after returning to practice Thursday and Friday.

The 49ers will suit up four wide receivers. Rookie wide receiver Quinton Patton is healthy after sustaining a fractured right foot on Sept. 26, but he is unable to break into the 49ers’ 46-man game day roster.

Kassim Osgood is the 49ers’ No. 4 wide receiver -- behind Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Mario Manningham – because of his contributions on special teams.

The only lineup chage for the Seahawks is James Carpenter gets the start at left guard in place of Paul McQuistan.
