The San Francisco 49ers returned to practice on Wednesday as they begin the process of getting ready for the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.The 49ers will practice through this week, and then head out to New Orleans Sunday afternoon. I'm not sure what the practice schedule is like next week, although I'd imagine it's somewhat similar to their normal practice week.
The 49ers sat Ahmad Brooks and Garrett Celek. Brooks departed the NFC Championship Game briefly with a shoulder issue, and it seems like the team wants to just give him some rest. Brooks was a big part of the team's defensive performance in the second half, and will be counted on next Sunday against the Ravens. I imagine he'll sit or be limited most of this week to get him ready for a full week of work in New Orleans.st of t
