Left guard Iupati back for 49ers against Falcons
San Francisco 49ers left guard Mike Iupati is back in the lineup
after missing three games with a sprained left knee.
Iupati is active for Monday night’s game against Atlanta and
expected to start when the 49ers try to clinch a playoff berth in
the final regular-season game at Candlestick Park.
Among the inactive players for the 49ers is wide receiver Mario
Manningham, who continues to have issues with his surgically
repaired left knee.
For Atlanta, Stephen Nicholas started at linebacker in place of
Sean Weatherspoon, who injured a knee in the fourth quarter last
week against Washington.
