SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) - San Francisco linebacker Takeo Spikes hopes to return from a hamstring injury for the 49ers' home game Sunday against Jacksonville.

Spikes missed last week's 30-24 loss at Green Bay and was replaced by Matt Wilhelm. Spikes strained his left hamstring just before halftime of a win over the Chicago Bears on Nov. 12 and hasn't played since.

Coach Mike Singletary says the rest of the players on the Niners' lengthy injury list should be ready to go by Sunday for San Francisco (4-6), which has lost four of its last five.

Left tackle Joe Staley, nursing a sprained right knee he hurt during San Francisco's 18-14 loss at Indianapolis on Nov. 1, is optimistic he will be back nearly on schedule, with the goal of playing on Dec. 14.
