Staley set to start for 49ers against Seahawks

Left tackle Joe Staley is active and listed in San Francisco’s

starting lineup for Sunday’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Staley said during the week he expected to play a week after he

went down in the first quarter against the Rams and didn’t return

because of a sprained right knee.

49ers left guard Mike Iupati misses his third straight game with

a sprained left knee.

As expected, Seattle wide receiver Percy Harvin and cornerback

Brandon Browner are in active for the playoff-bound Seahawks as

they tried to clinch the NFC West and a first-round playoff


Browner has been out since Week 10 with a groin injury, while

Harvin continues to deal with soreness in his comeback from hip

surgery and has only played one game.
