Mike Iupati, LaMichael James suffer second quarter injuries

The San Francisco 49ers have taken a 10-3 lead on the Seattle Seahawks, but they have taken some hits along the way. Return man LaMichael James and left guard Mike Iupati have both been injured, and left the game. James took a shot to the head and is questionable to return. Iupati did not appear in good shape as he was helped off the field after his leg was rolled on from behind.

Fooch's Update: LMJ returned to the game as the kickoff returner, so he should be good to go for now.

Fooch's Update No. 2: Mike Iupati ruled OUT

James suffered his injury on a punt return to start the second quarter. Ricardo Lockette drilled him, amidst a fumble by James. Darryl Morris recovered the fumble, but James went down hard. Lockette got a hand on LMJ's facemask, removing it at the end, but a penalty was not called. James was down for a bit, eventually got off the field, and was ruled questionable to return.

Iupati was rolled up from behind on Anthony Dixon's 4th and goal touchdown run. Dixon dove over the top, but as Iupati blocked his man, he was rolled up on his ankle. The 49ers announced he was questionable to return while he gets an x-ray.
