The San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers released their first practice participation reports of Wild Card week, and it is about as we expected.

Carlos Rogers is the most notable name on the injury report. His hamstring has him sidelined for now as he goes through some soreness. He will be a question mark all week. Even if he sits out practice all week, I suspect he'll be listed as questionable when the final report comes out on Friday. At this point, it's really hard to know what to expect. My guess is he is on the bad side of 50/50, but I don't think he's definitely out.

Other than Rogers, there is nothing else of particular note. Justin Smith and Jonathan Goodwin are getting their veteran's day off, and Jonathan Baldwin would likely be inactive even if he did practice. The 49ers have their share of IR'd players, but the roster as is looks fine for now.

On the Packers side of things, Clay Matthews is officially out. Mike Neal is a potential replacement for Matthews, although I suspect Andy Mulumba would get the start on Sunday. Other than that, the limited players should all be fine come Sunday. Eddie Lacy has been dealing with an ankle problem for a while now, but he continues to play.
