Joe Staley, offensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers, has been announced as active per the team. His status was expected, but it was officially announced before the game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Per ESPN,

Staley sprained his right knee early against the Rams last week and he did not return. It was initially believed Staley would miss a couple of games. But Staley practiced Thursday and Friday and said Friday he would play.

As for some of the other 49ers players dealing with injuries, the news isn’t as bright as Staley’s. Some players are going to be on the sidelines today.

Left guard Mike Iupati is out again, however. It’s the third straight game he’ll miss due to a sprained knee. Adam Snyder continues to play in his place.

Rookie receiver Quinton Patton continues to be inactive. He hasn’t played since he broke his foot in Week 4. Patton is now healthy, but with the 49ers’ veteran receivers all healthy, there is no room for Patton.
