Green Bay Packers Vs. San Francisco 49ers: Final Injury Report, Justin Smith Set To Start


Heading into Saturday’s NFC Divisional Round playoff game the San Francisco 49ers listed 13 players on their injury report. But fear not 49ers Faithful, all of the players were listed as probable and are expected to play against the Green Bay Packers.

Of the 13 players on the injury report CB Tarell Bown, S Dashon Goldson, LB Clark Haggans, FB Bruce Miller, LB Aldon Smith, DT Will Tukuafu and DT Justin Smith were limited at practice this week.

The top concern for us is Justin Smith and he is expected to start the game despite him being limited at practice all week. Smith partially tore his left triceps against the New England Patriots which caused him to miss the final two games of the season.

Having Smith on the defensive line will be a big boost, but how effective he will be is a huge question mark. Justin will need to be effective in order to free up Aldon Smith on the outside to get pressure on Aaron Rodgers and disrupting the passing attack. One worry is Justin will further damage his left triceps by playing, but if Jim Harbaugh says he is good to go, then you know he will be fine.

God willing and the creek don’t rise, he’s going to play, Harbaugh said.

On the Packers side, DE Jerel Worthy and WR Jarrett Boykin are out for the game. WRs Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson are probable after missing practice Wednesday, being limited on Thursday and full participants Friday.
