Niners' Ahmad Brooks feels 'all right'
SVP & Russillo
ESPN NFL analyst Antonio Pierce talks about his experiences playing on the road in the playoffs, the 49ers' mindset for the Seahawks, how the Broncos' game plan changes without Chris Harris and more.
Yet, Pro Bowl linebacker Ahmad Brooks is dressed like he's still playing in Green Bay nearly two weeks ago.
Fighting a "severe head cold" that kept him from practicing Wednesday, Brooks went through the 49ers' walk-through practice Thursday morning and was on the field for practice later in the day. Brooks said he's been dealing with the illness for a few days.
He was dressed for inclement weather, including a head wrap that covered his month. He was wearing layers and gloves to help him sweat.
"I'm feeling all right," Brooks said between workouts. "Just got a head cold, a severe cold. I'm trying to sweat it out as much as possible and get ready for the game."
Barring a major setback, Brooks should be able to play Sunday. He has 4.5 sacks in the 49ers' two playoff wins.
