Joe Staley Injury Update: 49ers Tackle Cleared To Play, According To Report

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Monday Night Football matchup against the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers. Late on Sunday the 49ers received some good news regarding one of their players who was previously listed as questionable for the game.

Matt Maioco of CSN Bay Area reports that left tackle Joe Staley has been fully cleared and is expected to play in Monday's game. Staley left last week's game against the Arizona Cardinals early in the first quarter following a play where his helmet collided with another player's knee.

It was initially feared that Staley may have suffered a concussion, but on Sunday word came down that he had been cleared for the Steelers game by the team physician and an independent neurological consultant, as per NFL guidelines on potential concussions.

It's certainly good news for the 49ers that they'll be playing this highly-anticipated game with as many of their key players as possible.
