The good news for the 49ers secondary is that cornerback Carlos Rogers was at practice on Friday.

The bad news is that he’s not the only Niners corner whose availability for Sunday’s game at Green Bay is up in doubt. Coach Jim Harbaugh said Friday that both Rogers and Eric Wright would be listed as questionable for the game.

Rogers hurt his hamstring last weekend and missed practice on both Wednesday and Thursday. Rogers was optimistic he’d be able to play earlier this week, but he was less sure when making his way off the field at the end of practice.

“I ran on it but I don’t know,” Rogers said, via┬áCam Inman of the Bay Area News Group.

Wright, who would usually be the next man up in the slot if Rogers is out, is also dealing with a hamstring injury suffered at practice on Wednesday. He was able to practice in a limited fashion on Thursday and beat writers in San Francisco said he was moving well on Friday. Perrish Cox, who recently returned to the team, would likely be next in line if both corners are out.

    If both of these corner are out for Sunday’s game, Aaron Rodgers must be licking his chops right now.

    I hope there not planting a seed for an excuse when Rodgers passes all over them. If Palmer can pass for over 400 I have to believe Rodgers will take advantage.

    Aaron Rodgers is too busy photobombing people to take notice.

    No problem. 49ers pass rush will dominate Rodgers again.

    You could always have -15 degree wind chill play the slot.

    Eric Wright is questionable every Sunday. In fact, I question how he is still cashing NFL paychecks.

    Run those on the outside deep, early and often. If the hammy tightens up, bomb them out of the park. It isn’t always physical talent that wins. Let the Pack win the time of possession battle by running, after spreading out the defense with mid-level passing and deep routes. Running early didn’t work in round one.

    If the weather is bad enough it may not matter

    Not a hamstring expert but I would imagine the slick, cold (grossly understated) conditions expected on Sunday are a sore hamstring’s worst nightmare.

    Well, it’s not like our corners stopped Rodgers and Co when fully healthy. Pass rush needs to come alive Sunday regardless of who we have back there

    @salbright45: The Niner run defense is much better than their pass defense anyway….. and Lacy has a bad wheel. I HOPE the Pack spends a lot of effort trying to run the ball. They’ll get nowhere. The Niner secondary has been questionable the past couple of weeks anyway. Now with a starting corner AND his backup out, Rodgers SHOULD have a field day. The more ball control they try to play, the better Fangio and the Niner defense are going to like it.

    KRAPernick and the Niners are going down!
