Chris Culliver expected to play against Bears

Chris Culliver is expected to suit up for the 49ers when they play against the Bears on Sunday night.

Culliver has returned to practice for the 49ers with head coach Jim Harbaugh referring to him as “good to go” for the tilt. This is good news for the 49ers who are expected to be without Tramaine Brock.

The 49ers will have Culliver, Perrish Cox and Dontae Johnson ready to defend against a Bears passing game that features tall targets in Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffrey.
