Jeff Hanisch-US PRESSWIRE
The 49ers and Falcons released their final injury reports for Sunday. We take a look at the impact of both reports.
The San Francisco 49ers and Atlanta Falcons released their final injury reports for Sunday's NFC Championship game, and there are no surprises in the mix. Just about everybody on this list should be playing, although who is 100% will be something to keep an eye on.
For the 49ers, Justin Smith and Joe Staley were concerns following Sunday's game, but both are good to go. Justin Smith indicated he is feeling good, and a game later is a bit more used to being in the arm brace. Staley did not even appear on the injury list this week, even as a "full participant". It would seem it was just a temporary bruise that went away, which is always a plus.
For the Falcons, John Abraham and Jonathan Babineaux are listed questionable. I haven't heard much about Babineaux to date. Abraham has been dealing with an ankle issue, and if he is limited, that is a pretty big deal for the 49ers. This will be something to follow all day Sunday.
Probable: G Alex Boone (knee), LB Navorro Bowman (shoulder), CB Tarell Brown (shoulder), TE Garrett Celek (foot), CB Chris Culliver (knee), S Dashon Goldson (shin), LB Tavares Gooden (knee), RB Frank Gore (knee), LB Clark Haggans (shoulder), G Mike Iupati (shoulder), RB Bruce Miller (shoulder), LB Aldon Smith (shoulder), DT Justin Smith (elbow, triceps), LB Patrick Willis (shoulder)
Questionable: DE John Abraham (ankle), DT Jonathan Babineaux (shoulder)
