49ers' Iupati injures ankle, questionable to return vs. Giants

San Francisco 49ers guard Mike Iupati suffered an ankle injury in the first half of Sunday's NFC Championship Game and is questionable to return.

Iupati was taken to the locker room.

New York Giants center David Bass left the game with an abdominal contusion but his return is probable, according to the New York Daily News.

Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks left the game with a shoulder injury but the team said he is likely to return.

Nicks landed hard after being clobbered by 49ers cornerback Chris Culliver following a 7-yard catch.
