49ers Vs. Cardinals Injury Report: Patrick Willis, Carlos Rogers Sit Out Practice

New, comments

Fooch's Update: MM tweeted Rogers injury is not serious and he is expected to play on Sunday.

The San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals both released their Wednesday practice participation reports and the 49ers had an unexpected appearance. Cornerback Carlos Rogers showed up as a DNP with a knee issue. Rogers was apparently at practice offering advice, but had his left knee wrapped. The one plus was that he was reportedly walking without a limp.

There was no mention of Rogers having any issues leading up to today, so we will have to wait and see how this plays out on Sunday. Defensive coordinator Vic Fangio will talk to the media tomorrow and likely be asked about it, but I doubt he provides any information on the injury. I remember Tramaine Brock coming on the field at one point on Sunday after an injury, but I don't think it was too Rogers.

If Rogers is unable to go, the starting corners become Tarell Brown and Chris Culliver. Tramaine Brock would seemingly elevate to the third corner, with Shawntae Spencer active once again. You never want to lose the number one cornerback, particularly with Larry Fitzgerald coming up, but it is at least an opportunity to get more snaps to the backups.
