49ers-Bucs Injury Report: Isaac Sopoaga, Shawntae Spencer Sit Out Practice

The San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers each released their first practice participation report of the week. There aren't many big names hurting, although a few worth mentioning. For the Bucs, they are dealing primarily with depth injuries while the 49ers are hopefully simply getting over some nagging injuries.

The 49ers officially added Tramaine Brock to the OUT status alongside Braylon Edwards and Moran Norris. Edwards is expected back after the bye and it looks like Norris will probably be healthy again at that point. It remains to be seen what impact that would have on the depth chart, but the team has three weeks to figure out how best to work them back into the lineup.

Brock is not the only member of the secondary that is banged up. Cornerback Shawntae Spencer did not practice today with a toe injury. We'll keep an eye on his injury as the week progresses. I'd imagine if he had any shot at supplanting Tarell Brown in the starting lineup, this would slow it down.

The other injury of note is Isaac Sopoaga did not practice due to an infection. No word on the severity of it.

UPDATE: Barrows tweeted that he is hearing Sopoaga might have a staph infection. If he can't go Sunday, Ricky Jean Francois would start and Ian Williams would likely be active as his backup.
