49ers vs. Buccaneers Injury Report: Michael Crabtree And Frank Gore Remain Limited, Aqib Talib May Miss Game

After a big week four for the San Francisco 49ers, head coach Jim Harbaugh and his staff have seen their team get healthier as the week progressed. Despite a few key players being limited in practice on Thursday, players such as Michael Crabtree and Frank Gore are expected to play this Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Here is the injury report for both teams:

49ers:

Did Not Practice, Out For Sunday:

CB Tramaine Brock (hand), WR Braylon Edwards (knee), RB Moran Norris (fibula)

Did Not Practice:

DT Isaac Sopoaga (infection), CB Shawntae Spencer (toe)

Limited Participation In Practice:

WR Michael Crabtree (feet), RB Frank Gore (ankle), G Mike Iupati (neck), G Adam Snyder (hamstring)

Buccaneers:

Did Not Participate:

LB Quincy Black (ankle), LB Zach Diles (hamstring), S Devin Holland (back), T James Lee (knee), TE Luke Stocker (knee), WR Sammie Stroughter (foot), CB Aqib Talib (knee), TE Kellen Winslow (not injury related)

Limited Participation In Practice:

RB Earnest Graham (hamstring)

Full Participation In Practice:

DE Tim Crowder (knee), TE Zack Pianalto (calf)

[...]

As for something to watch for in week five, DT Isaac Sopoaga will likely miss the game with a staph infection. Third year tackle Ricky Jean Francois will be making the first start of his career.

On Tampa Bay's side, the injury reports are indicating cornerback Aquib Talib is probably going to miss the game this weekend. This would be a big advantage for the 49ers and Michael Crabtree -- assuming he plays, of course -- could be in for a big game if Talib is out.
