The San Francisco 49ers go into Week 16 -- in which they can clinch their third playoff berth in three seasons with Jim Harbaugh as coach -- with their 53-man roster in fairly good health.
Like last week, Iupati was limited all week. He has missed the past four games with a sprained knee. Harbaugh told reporters Saturday that Iupati had a productive week, but no decision has been made whether he will play Monday night against Atlanta. Adam Snyder would continue to play for Iupati if needed.
Manningham, the team's No. 3 receiver, missed Thursday and Saturday’s practices because of an illness and a knee injury. Mannigham has played sparingly in the past three games since Michael Crabtree returned.
Rookie receiver Quinton Patton could be active for the first time since Week 4 if Manningham is inactive.
The 49ers can clinch a playoff berth if Arizona loses at Seattle on Sunday or if the 49ers win Monday night. San Francisco can secure the No. 5 seed in the playoffs if it beats Atlanta and then wins at Arizona on Sunday. San Francisco is 10-4 and has won four straight games.
