49ers vs. Packers injury report: As healthy as can be expected

New, comments

The 49ers and Packers released their final injury reports for their divisional round matchup. We take a look at some of the more interesting aspects of the reports.

The 49ers and Packers released their final injury reports for Saturday, and it's a whole lot of probable. The Packers do have two players out, but otherwise, it looks like all their receivers will be back and ready. I was expecting the 49ers to list Justin Smith as questionable, but in light of the comments over the last week, I suppose a probable listing isn't shocking.

The more interesting, or at least random aspect of the 49ers injury report is that 8 of the 13 players are listed as having shoulder issues. That is quite the coincidence. I have no ide why it is like this, but it's at least mildly interesting. Any theories as to why the 49ers have so many shoulder issues?

49ers
Probable: LB NaVorro Bowman (shoulder), CB Tarell Brown (shoulder), TE Garrett Celek (foot), S Dashon Goldson (shoulder), LB Tavares Gooden (ribs), LB Clark Haggans (shoulder), G Mike Iupati (shoulder), RB Bruce Miller (shoulder), CB Carlos Rogers (knee), LB Aldon Smith (shoulder), DT Justin Smith (elbow, triceps), DT Will Tukuafu (neck), LB Patrick Willis (shoulder)

Packers
Out: WR Jarrett Boykin (ankle), DE Jerel Worthy (knee)

Probable: WR Randall Cobb (illness), TE Jermichael Finley (hamstring), RB Alex Green (knee), LB Clay Matthews (knee), LB Dezman Moses (hamstring), WR Jordy Nelson (ankle), RB James Starks (knee)
