Carlos Rogers hopeful to play against Packers

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers isn’t close to thinking he won’t be able to play against the Green Bay Packers this weekend in the Wild Card round of the NFC playoffs.

Rogers had an MRI on his right hamstring after leaving Sunday’s regular season finale against the Arizona Cardinals.

According to Janie McCauley of the Associated Press, Rogers wouldn’t speak Tuesday to the results of the MRI but he wasn’t close to considering himself out for Sunday’s game at Lambeau Field.

“Oh, no,” Rogers said to whether he’d rule himself out, “hell no.”

“We’ll see, we don’t know. It’s all right. It ain’t bad. We’re taking it day by day.”

Rogers has started all 48 at cornerback for the 49ers over the past three seasons. This year he’s racked up 47 tackles with two interceptions and eight passes defensed.

Due to the uncertainty of Rogers’ availability, the 49ers re-signed Perrish Cox to add depth at the position on Monday. Tarell Brown would likely get the bump into the starting lineup for San Francisco if Rogers in unable to play with Cox and Eric Wright being available in sub-packages for the 49ers.

    Single digit temps and a bad hamstring? Good luck with that.

    Hope he plays, don’t necessarily have to have him this week though. Packers really don’t have much of a chance.

    Niners!!!!

    Rogers when asked about injury.
    “It doesn’t feel that bad”

    When asked if he’ll miss game.

    Rogers ” ohh nah, hell no!!”

    He’s playing & mark my words he will have a pick!

    He’s not the best corner by any stretch but, he’s crafty and veteran savvy. He will come up big. I guarantee it!!!

    Carlos Rogers, drafted 9th overall in 2005, has only 17 career INTs in 125 games. Richard Sherman, drafted in 2011, already has 20 INTs in 48 games. Can you say STONE HANDS!

    49ers need a real coach.

    The 49ers re-signed Perrish Cox?

    Now they will learn all of Pete Carrol’s dirty lil’ secrets ;-/

    Hamstrings don’t heal in six days.

    Could really benefit that Packers offense. I really wanna see the rematch with Lacy. He seems to have changed that offense.

    If worse comes to worse, T. Brock has been playing pretty good. Not a ton lost on that switch-off.

    If SF doesn’t do something about their recent pass defense they could be in big trouble. I still think they just plain outscore GB. Can’t keep counting on huge plays by Bowman.

    Lots of Niner fans apparently counting their chickens before they hatch. I’m not saying Green Bay will win, but I wouldn’t be so confident

    Green Bay is much better than their record. That offense looks downright lethal with Rodgers and Cobb back and with the emergence of Lacy and Starks.

    Should be a fun game.

    Carlos and Aaron should meet on and off the field.

    ——————

    I suspect that the reason for confidence is not rested on overlooking Green Bay’s offense, but on the lack of Green Bay’s defense.

    The Packers can throw the ball, and the Niners lack of pass defense these last few weeks should be a concern. However, the other side of that is few really believe the Packers defense can stop much of anything.

    My guess is that this game turns into a shootout.
