The San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks released their NFC title game inactives, and there are no surprises. Cornerback Carlos Rogers and fullback Will Tukuafu are both active, although we don't know exactly what kind of playing time they will be looking at. Both were limited in practice all week.
Rogers makes his return to action for the first time since Week 17. He injured his hamstring during the 49ers final defensive drive against the Cardinals, and proceeded to miss the first two playoff games. He said earlier this week he would be playing in this game, and he anticipated working as the nickel back. That means Tramaine Brock and Tarell Brown get the start. Perrish Cox will serve as the dime back, and Rogers primary backup at nickel. It will be interesting to see if the 49ers decide to rotate Cox with Rogers given how well Cox has performed over the last two weeks.
Tukuafu injured his knee during the opening drive of last week's Divisional round game with the Carolina Panthers. He missed the rest of the game, but returned to practice this week in limited fashion. Much like Rogers, we might see a fair amount of rotation at fullback. Anthony Dixon replaced Tukuafu last week, but Vance McDonald also got some play in the fullback role.
