49ers vs. Buccaneers, Final Injury Report: Aqib Talib Likely To Play

The San Francisco 49ers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers released their final injury reports for Sunday's game. Their are no real surprises at this point with Shawntae Spencer listed as questionable and Isaac Sopoaga listed as doubtful. Sopoaga was a long shot to play this week with a reported staph infection and this more or less confirms that.

On the other hand, Spencer looks like a potential game-time decision. He did not take part in Wednesday and Thursday practices but was a limited participant on Friday. I'd imagine that Chris Culliver will see more playing time on Sunday even if Spencer is active. The team likely will not want to push Spencer too hard if he is not 100%. Last week Donte Whitner was active but did not get any action. While that is possible this week, the 49ers are a bit more limited in terms of cornerback depth with Tramaine Brock sidelined.

For the Bucs, Aqib Talib was back at practice on Friday after sitting out Thursday with a knee issue. He is listed as probable and it would appear as though he will be playing this week. He and Ronde Barber make up a solid cornerback duo. They gave up some big plays to the Indianapolis Colts last Monday, so let's hope for more of the same this week.
