49ers near full strength for NFC title game


While the Seattle Seahawks determined Friday that they will be without play-making receiver Percy Harvin, it appears the San Francisco 49ers’ 53-man roster will be near full strength Sunday in the NFC Championship Game at Seattle.

As expected, the 49ers have just two players listed as questionable: cornerback Carlos Rogers and fullback Will Tukuafu. Both players practiced on a limited basis all week and should play barring setbacks.

Rogers missed the playoff wins at Green Bay and Carolina with a hamstring injury. He is expected to be the nickel cornerback Sunday. 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Rogers “had a pep in his step in practice Friday.”

Tukauafu suffered a knee injury early in the Carolina game. He should split time at fullback with Anthony Dixon.

Star linebacker Ahmad Brooks is listed as probable with an illness. He has practiced fully the past two days after sitting out Wednesday’s practice with a severe head cold.
