Carlos Rogers won’t play against Packers

The 49ers are going to be down a cornerback at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

Carlos Rogers hurt his hamstring against the Cardinals in Week 17 and held out hope of playing all week even as he missed practice, but he’s not in the lineup for San Francisco. It’s hardly the unexpected outcome, but still a big loss for a 49ers team that hasn’t played without Rogers in the last three years.

Tarell Brown and Trumaine Brock will start at cornerback for the 49ers. Eric Wright, who was also listed as questionable because of a hamstring injury, is active and will likely fill Rogers’ slot duties when the Niners have all three corners on the field. Tight end Derek Carrier, linebacker Nick Moody, guard Ryan Seymour, defensive tackle Quinton Dial, guard Joe Looney and wide receiver Jon Baldwin are also inactive for the 49ers.

The Packers ruled out linebacker Clay Matthews long before Sunday and he’s joined on the inactive list by wide receiver Chris Harper, quarterback Scott Tolzien, cornerback Jumal Rolle, linebacker Nate Palmer, guard Lane Taylor and offensive lineman J.C. Tretter.

    The Green Bay Packers are going to be completely annihilated today.

    That helps. I fear however it wont be enough. Any chance Gore, Davis, and Crabtree are out as well?

    Go Pack!

    Who doesn’t want to see Harbaughs tears freeze?

    More than likely a few won’t play. You don’t disparage the place you are staying, the cook staff will mix bathroom floor scrapings in your eggs and bring on Montezuma’s revenge.

    All of the Pack’s DL are active. I hope to see none of that stupid 2 DL defense today.

    If the 49ers are upset it’s time to look at new coaches. Harbaugh just isn’t cutting it.

    I don’t know that Carlos Rogers is a big loss. He’s been a liability in coverage all year long, so this may actually make the secondary better.

    Oh great, a built in excuse for Harbaugh.

    Says a lot about your coach if your backup is better than your starter.

  10. hrmlss says: Jan 5, 2014 4:01 PM

    The Vikings, Bears and Lions won’t lose today, guaranteed….

    Looking forward to this one. Bring on the cold! (Easy to say watching from home I know)

    Alright everyone. Here’s to a great game! I think this one could turn into an instant classic, whoever wins. Of course, I’m pulling for my Pack. But what I want most of all is a CLEAN win – no huge blown calls by the refs, no obvious turnovers missed, no ridiculous penalties levied for no reason.

    Perfect world for me – Pack wins CLEANLY.

    I look for GB to run just enough and get most of their yardage through the air, spreading out that big 9ers D and letting Aaron do his thing.

    26-20 Pack.

    He has somewhat been a liability in coverage so it will not be a significant drop off for that defense.

  14. blakeden says: Jan 5, 2014 4:13 PM

    All underdogs have won so far

  15. bru308 says: Jan 5, 2014 4:13 PM

    As a 49ers fan, I’m excited for this news. Rogers has been terrible this year.

  16. suckittrebek76 says: Jan 5, 2014 4:15 PM

    How long after the Niners win does Capers get fired?

  17. lakerade says: Jan 5, 2014 4:16 PM

    Excited for this game, love when the elements factor in!

    NFL needs to seed teams for the playoffs. There is no way Green Bay should be hosting a playoff game with an 8-7-1 record. Niners are 12-4 and they have to play on the road. Packers back their way into the playoffs, get to host, and need a Bank and the local Fox affiliate to buy up their tickets after receiving one extension. Hapless, classless team and their fans.

    game time temp now readjusted. cold front doesnt come in till 8pm packers get smoked

  20. realitycheckbaby says: Jan 5, 2014 4:29 PM

    McCarthy out coaches Harbaugh but won’t likely be enough.

  21. jayniner says: Jan 5, 2014 4:33 PM

    The way this game has been set up all week in the medis, you’d think there would be 10 feet of snow on the ground with Antarctic-like conditions, with players and fans dying on the field and in the stands because of the cold.

    Watching pregame coverage, weather is clear and all the players look pretty comfortable….should be a great game.

    Go Niners!!!!

    49ers can’t beat hawks anyway

  23. leatherface2012 says: Jan 5, 2014 4:37 PM

    if san fran goes up 7-0 , it’s over

  24. leatherface2012 says: Jan 5, 2014 4:54 PM

    game is over already cheesheads

  25. leatherface2012 says: Jan 5, 2014 4:55 PM

    nice pass defense bwahahahaha

  26. cags777 says: Jan 5, 2014 4:56 PM

    It’s time for the 49ers to end the entitlement mentality, prove the Packers do not deserve to be in the playoffs today. Make it happen!
