Something was off about Mike McGlinchey's nameplate over his locker. Of course, the San Francisco 49ers' second-year right tackle hadn't noticed.

The nameplate read "McGrinchey," and it had been like that for about two weeks.

Fellow offensive linemen Joe Staley and Mike Person were able to persuade the equipment staff to make the change. It wasn't until Tuesday that McGlinchey finally noticed, and that was because cornerback Richard Sherman finally let him in on the prank. The players, after all, were about to break until Monday as the team enters its bye week.


Now, if only Staley and Person can convince the equipment staff to give the nameplate on McGlinchey's jersey the same treatment.
