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).

  1. I would miss practice too, it’s only the overrated packers , who needed 2 blown luck plays to advance! Enjoy ur bye sf!

  2. Justin smith and Goodwin miss every Wednesday for years as they are two of the oldest guys on the team. This is not new info and everyone who covers the team knows this. I don’t care what the packers record is cause this is a tough team at home with a great qb. Looking forward to sunday

    Sitting in SFO on my way to GB via Chicago..Not taking the Pack lightly go 9ers!


  4. The Rogers injury could end up being a big one when facing Aaron Rodgers and all those offensive weapons they have up there.

  5. If Carlos Rogers can’t go, Eric Wright will take his place.. who’s just as talented as Rogers, so there will little to no drop-off. The Niners actually have one of the deepest CB corps in the league, no superstars, but all good CBs.

  6. Green Bay has 4 starting caliber WRs with one of the best QBs of all time throwing to them. It doesn’t matter if there isn’t a drop off in talent the #1 CB position. What matters is that there’s a change and drop off further down the line covering the Packers’ #3 and #4 WRs. Green Bay has too many receiving threats for any team’s depth to effectively deal with when healthy; let alone when injured.
