Crabtree listed to start for 49ers against Rams

Michael Crabtree is listed to start for the San Francisco 49ers

against the St. Louis Rams on Sunday in his season debut.

Crabtree, the 49ers’ top wide receiver last season, has been

sidelined all season since tearing his right Achilles tendon in a

May workout and undergoing surgery.

Left guard Mike Iupati missed his second straight game for San

Francisco with a sprained left knee, while cornerback Tarell Brown

also sat out a second in a row because of a rib injury. Adam Snyder

is starting in place of Iupati and Tramaine Brock for Brown.

Rams right guard Harvey Dahl missed his fourth straight game

because of a knee injury.
