Carlos Rogers getting MRI on hamstring after leaving game

With the prospect of Aaron Rodgers and the Packers coming up this weekend, the 49ers will need all hands on deck.

They should find out today if one of their key defenders will be able to go.

Cornerback Carlos Rogers left yesterday’s win over the Cardinals late in the game with a right hamstring strain, and is scheduled for an MRI today, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.

Rogers said: “It’s not hurting me. We’ll see. Hopefully, it’s not that bad.” Coach Jim Harbaugh acknowledged that “something was bothering him physically,” however.

The 49ers have shown some vulnerability anyway, allowing 755 passing yards in their final two regular season games against the Falcons and Cardinals.

If Rogers couldn’t go, they’d likely promote Tarell Brown to the starting lineup, and use veteran Eric Wright to cover the slot.

While that’s depth other teams in the postseason don’t have, it’s also going to be tested against one of the top quarterbacks in the game who led a dramatic playoff-clincing win in his first game back from a broken collarbone.

    Richard Sherman (drafted in 2011 and has played in 48 games, with 42 starts) has more career INTs (20) than Carlos Rogers (17) (drafted 9th overall in 2005 and has played in 126 games). Let that sink in for a moment.

    I really hope these two teams beat the mess out of each other, ideally in double overtime, because I live in Charlotte. We’ll be playing against the survivor.

    You might be playing the survivor. You could well be playing the Eagles.

    49ers SuperBowl wins – 5
    Seahawks SuperBowl wins – 0

    “Let that sink in for a moment” (Whatever that means)

    I guess you win the InterceptionBowl, Congratulations on that………..

    It’s really becoming comical how these “die hard” 49er fans (who needed instructions on how to be good fans – no joke) keep this same broken record going over and over. 5 wins, 5 wins blah blah blah.

    Its like going to a 20 year high school reunion and the star QB, whos now fat and broke, keeps bragging about how great he used to be and continues thinking hes still that great. When in reality, everyone else has become way more sucessful and he just looks like a loser.

    This sums up the ideoligy of San Fran. Joe Montana was amazing, THEN. Steve Young was great, THEN. And yet todays fans find a way to rehash what USED to be, thinking that somehow applies to whats going on in the NFL today.

    Face it losers, Seattle is the top dog, not just in the NFC west, not just the NFC, but the entire league. You can stop calling yoursleves the “best team” any day now becuase in all reality, your just making yourselves look as dumb as you really are. Go Hawks.

    Seahawks are so over rated and your corner backs have to hold on receivers to win a game

    Yeah, that’s great and all…..

    Carson Palmer had NO business putting up 407 yards against our defense yesterday! WTH?!?

    Cardinals beat Vegas’ expectations by 4.5 wins, and now they get the 20th pick in the draft. Things are looking up under the Keim/Arians administration, especially when the Cards’ o-line performs well against the 49ers. Thank god Levi Brown is gone!

    Its really comical that just when Seattle get good they suddenly get a fan base, having not had one for the previous 20 years.

    Seattle doesn’t have any fans that have followed the team longer than 5 years, outside of a handful of crybabies who still whine about their Superbowl loss incessantly…

    It’s pathetic…but then again, if my team had Seattle’s history, I’d pretend things like tradition and legacy didn’t matter either.
