NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Nose tackle Glenn Dorsey is active for the 49ers’ Sunday’s game against the Tennessee and is listed as a starter.

The 49ers will suit up six defensive linemen with Dorsey expected to be less-than 100 percent with a right hamstring strain. He did not practice Wednesday and Thursday and returned to work Friday in a limited role.

Rookie nose tackle Quinton Dial is in uniform and could see action in his first NFL game after being activated Saturday off the reserve/non-football injury list.

Running back LaMichael James was a healthy inactive for the second consecutive game after suiting up in the two previous games.

Cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and wide receiver Marlon Moore are also healthy inactives for the game.

Outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, who missed two practices late in the week for family reasons, joined the team in Nashville and will start.

For the Titans, quarterback Jake Locker is active and will start after missing two games with hip and knee injuries.
