Ahmad Brooks, Aldon Smith limited in practice for 49ers

x350 AP

The good news for the 49ers is that linebacker Ahmad Brooks returned to practice on a limited basis Wednesday with a shoulder injury.  The bad news for the 49ers is that linebacker Aldon Smith also practiced on a limited basis.

Per a league source, Brooks will play on Sunday, despite missing practice last week with a shoulder injury suffered in the NFC title game.  Smith (pictured) also is expected to play.

All other injured 49ers fully participated in practice, including linebacker NaVorro Bowman (shoulder), cornerback Tarell Brown (shoulder), tight end Garrett Celek (foot), running back Frank Gore (shoulder, ankle), linebacker Clark Haggans (shoulder), guard Mike Iupati (shoulder), running back LaMichael James (finger), running back Bruce Miller (shoulder), defensive tackle Justin Smith (elbow, triceps), and linebacker Patrick Willis (shoulder).

Not listed at all on the report was cornerback Chris Culliver, who apparently has overcome his acute case of diarrhea of the mouth.

    Not worried. These guys are going to tear it up after nearly two weeks off. Justin Smith is going to give everything he’s got left and the front seven will flourish.

    Like I said earlier, Ravens oline has been stout with McKinnie in at LT, Oher shifting to RT, and KO moving to Guard. This 49er defense is going to be stonewalled.

    Joe Flaco + time in pocket = F bombs on that suspect secondary

    Aldon Smith has been limited in practice for the past few weeks so no way he misses the game.

    That’s one point that people fail to see when talking about Aldon’s sack slump is there is something physically wrong with him and it’s not because of Justin Smith and his injury (though it doesn’t help).

    Shoulders don’t worry me. Leg injuries make playing difficult. Shoulders can be shot up for the big game,
