SANTA CLARA -- Mike Iupati, who missed a practice earlier in the week with a right knee injury, is expected to start Sunday at left guard against the Detroit Lions. He is listed as probable on the official 49ers injury report.
Receiver Braylon Edwards (knee), fullback Moran Norris (fibula) and cornerback Tramaine Brock (hand) have been ruled out of action for the game. Edwards is expected to return to action Oct. 30 against the Cleveland Browns.Everybody else on the 49ers is healthy enough to play Sunday against the unbeaten Lions.
Nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga is expected to return to action after missing the game Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with a staph infection.
Cornerback Shawntae Spencer suited up but did not play a week ago due to a toe injury. But coach Jim Harbaugh said Friday that Spencer was available for that game. Asked if that means that rookie Chris Culliver has earned the job as the No. 3 cornerback, Harbaugh declined to answer.There are indications that Spencer will return as the 49ers' No. 3 cornerback this week, as Culliver spent time in practice this week with the 49ers' scout team.49ERS INJURY REPORT
