San Francisco 49ers defensive back Carlos Rogers has started 48 straight games for the franchise, though there was some concern if he’d be able to start 49 consecutive games.
Rodgers underwent an MRI for a strained hamstring on Monday – just a day after San Francisco finished off their regular season with a win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Results of the MRI have yet to be released, though Rogers himself doesn’t seem worried, suggesting the injury ‘ain’t bad’:
“We’ll see, we don’t know,” Rogers said from his car. “It’s all right. It ain’t bad. We’re taking it day by day.”
There’s understandably no word if Rogers will be available for San Francisco’s Wild Card game against the Green Bay Packers, though the defensive back scoffed at the notion that he could sit out:
“Oh, no,” he said, “hell no.”
Rogers’ status will be watched by the 49ers medical team in the coming days. Thankfully for San Francisco, they’re not scheduled to play until Sunday which will give their defensive back one more day of rest in comparison to the Saturday playoff games.
