The Bucs are warming up here at Candlestick Park but their inactive list has been released.
The inactives are: WR Sammie Stroughter (foot), S Devin Holland (back), LB Zac Diles (hmstring), LB Quincy Black (ankle), OT Derek Hardman (coach's decision), OT James Lee (knee) and TE Luke Stocker (knee).

SAN FRANCISCO Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers accomplished something Sunday that had been elusive for predecessor Mike Singletary over the past 2 1/2 seasons: They imposed their will on an opponent.
