49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers recently said “hell no” regarding whether he’d rule himself out for Sunday’s playoff game at Lambeau Field. As to whether he missed practice on Wednesday, the answer would be “hell yes.”
Rogers suffered a hamstring injury during his team’s Week 17 win over the Cardinals. He has said “it ain’t bad” and that he’s “taking it day by day.”
As Curtis Crabtree pointed out very early this morning, Rogers has started all 48 regular-season games for the 49ers over the last three seasons.
Also missing from practice on Wednesday was defensive lineman Justin Smith, who has a shoulder injury. Smith has started all 16 games this year.
Receiver Jonathan Baldwin (illness) did not participate in practice for San Francisco. Center Jonathan Goodwin likewise didn’t practice, but his absence wasn’t injury related.
Other names appearing on the report were linebacker NaVorro Bowman (full participation; wrist), cornerback Tarell Brown (full; ribs), running back Frank Gore (full; knee), guard Mike Iupati (full; knee), and linebacker Dan Skuta (foot; limited).
