Nnamdi Asomugha will be ready for Sunday

By Bill Williamson

San Francisco got some good news Thursday: Nnamdi Asomugha will be ready to play Sunday against the potent Green Bay Packers.

San Francisco defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said Asomugha, signed this offseason, will play and be the No. 3 cornerback. He was limited in practice with a collarbone injury Wednesday.

Asomugha will be important against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers passing game. Expect Asomugha to be on Jordy Nelson often.

With Asomugha set to play, the 49ers are pretty healthy heading into this game. Backup running back LaMichael James is expected to be out a few weeks with a knee injury. Other than that, San Francisco is set.
