Vance McDonald, Mike Iupati Inactive Against Bucs

The 49ers announcement of inactive players 90 minutes before their Sunday kickoff against the host Tampa Bay Buccaneers clarified a few injury situations.

Cornerback Tarell Brown (ribs) was active for the first time in four games. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said earlier in the week that Brown, who had been replaced by Tramaine Brock in the starting lineup, could eased back into extended playing time.

Left guard Adam Snyder was slated to start for Mike Iupati for the fourth straight game. Iupati (knee) practiced on a limited basis this week.

The surprise on the list: rookie tight end Garrett Celek, who has been the team's No. 2 end all season. McDonald was limited by an ankle injury. He was replaced on the roster by reserve tight ends Garrett Celek and Derek Carrier.
