Carlos Rogers not expected to play for 49ers this week

The official injury report will come out later this afternoon, but it doesn’t take much dot-connecting to guess where 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers stands.

According to Matt Maiocco of, Rogers isn’t expected to play in Sunday’s Divisional Round playoff game against the Panthers, after missing the entire week of practice with a hamstring strain.

When asked if Rogers could play without practicing this week, 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio replied: “No.”

So, they’ll probably list him as questionable just because.

Rogers injured the hamstring in the regular season finale, and missed last week’s game against the Packers. Tramaine Brock and Tarell Brown will start at cornerback in his absence, with Perrish Cox working as the nickel.

The Panthers don’t have the kind of passing game to take full advantage, but with Steve Smith expected to play, expect them to send Ted Ginn deep to try to create space.

    As a 49er fan, all I can say is “whew!” Carlos was awesome his first 2 years with the 49ers. But this year, he’s easily the 4th best corner. Our defense improves when he’s on the sideline, unfortunately.

    Carlos Rogers not expexted to play for 49ers again – fixed it for you. LOL they seemed to do better without him amd he most certainly wont be back next year on an $8M cap charge

    The 9ers know Ted Ginn’s strengths and weaknesses. Non-issue.

    Rogers, like Walt Harris before him, were great free agent additions from the Washington Redskins. Expect to see more of Eric Wright this week as Cox was beat quite a few times last week.

    Okay Panthers, you can do this!

    Eric Wright has done nothing but get burned by the Panthers in his career.

    Hopefully Carlos won’t have to fly to Charlotte to watch his team get beat down. Go Panthers!!

    Carlos Rogers – out
    Aaron Rodgers – 177 passing yards

    Coincidence? I think not.

    I haven’t seen PFF’s numbers but I think Rogers was better this year than last (but not as good as his excellent 2011). Of course, he’s not as good as Brown and now Brock has passed him as well, but when healthy he’s probably better than Cox covering the slot. He was a starter on one of the best defenses in the league for the past 2.5 seasons for a reason. It’s not a huge loss but it is a loss.

    49ers fans sure are whiny about the refs in last week’s game. Funny. They sure weren’t crying this much when they knocked the Packers out of the playoff game after the HORRIBLE Jerry Rice non-fumble call.
