The 3 big names dealing with injuries heading into the NFC Championship Game could all play. The 49ers figure to have both Carlos Rogers and Will Tukuafu ready to go, while Seattle’s Percy Harvin is a big question mark and will remain so up until kickoff.
The only two notable names that could miss this Sunday’s game between the 49ers and Panthers are Steve Smith and Carlos Rogers. While it’s unlikely that Smith will sit, it would not be a surprise to see Rogers not dressed. Regardless of what happens, both teams will be fine, and shouldn’t have to make any major adjustments.
The fact that both teams could be without a key defensive player this Sunday when the 49ers and Packers play is not good. While Green Bay already knows their fate, San Francisco is hoping and waiting that they will not be without Carlos Rogers.
The Giants issued a statement of their own to 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh on Sunday. Maybe the rest of the NFL, too.
There won’t be any salsa-dancing controversies on Sunday at Candlestick Park when the Giants take on the San Francisco 49ers in a rematch of last season’s NFC championship game. At least that’s what 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers has vowed.
“With his teammates cheering him on, he did a sarcastic salsa dance over me,” Cruz wrote in his book in regard to Rogers. “The Candlestick Park crowd went ballistic, but I wasn’t laughing. It was a sign of disrespect.”
We’re just four games into the season, and already there’s talk of the Jets not giving their all.
Santonio Holmes’ status is still unclear after undergoing x-rays.
