When San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers went down in their season finale against the Arizona Cardinals, there was obvious cause for concern.
Rogers has been a fixture in the San Francisco lineup – playing in 48 straight contests and is one of the few defensive backs who hasn’t been continually burned in recent weeks.
Combine losing him with having to face Aaron Rodgers? It wasn’t setting up to be a pretty scenario for the San Francisco secondary, but thankfully the hamstring injury he suffered isn’t as bad as originally feared:

Despite the good prognosis, there’s still no word on if Rogers will suit up for San Francisco’s Wild Card playoff game against the Green Bay Packers this week.
If he does, he might need to permananetly attach himself to the sideline bike to keep things loose, considering the game between San Francisco and Green Bay is expected to be one of the coldest in NFL history.
