Carlos Rogers on brink of return to 49ers
By Bill Williamson
Carlos Rogers is hopeful to finally play in a playoff game this month.
The cornerback told reporters he hopes to practice this week and barring a setback, he expects to play at Seattle in the NFC Championship Game Sunday. Rogers missed the games at Green Bay and at Carolina with a hamstring injury he suffered at Arizona in Week 17. Rogers hasn't practiced since.
Meanwhile, fullback Will Tukuafu told reporters he is day-to-day. He missed most of the Carolina game with a knee injury. He will likely be a game-time decision. Tukuafu shared time with Anthony Dixon. If he can't play, rookie tight end Vance McDonald will likely share time with Dixon as he did against Carolina.
