Spikes Likely Out Sunday

Veteran linebacker Takeo Spikes will likely be held out of Sunday's game against the Green Bay Packers with a shoulder injury. Spikes had been hurt a couple weeks ago and played hurt on Thursday against the Bears before being replaced by another veteran Matt Wilhelm, the latest signee by the 49ers.

Wilhelm was brought in after Jeff Ulbrich was put on IR after a concussion that is threatening to end his career. Up until Thursday, Wilhelm was an unknown commodity when he replaced Spikes in the game against Chicago but ended up having himself a very solid game with five tackles and even a couple of pressures to Jay Cutler. Wilhelm will likely get the start at TED linebacker if Spikes cannot play. Rookie Scot McKillop will be backing him up.

The 49ers play the Green Bay Packers this Sunday on the road and are investing a lot into this game as it could play a huge part in the NFC Wildcard picture later in the season.
