A 49ers injury report ahead of Super Bowl 2013 has revealed the key injuries for San Francisco in today's televised NFL championship game. The Niners will be taking on the Ravens in a battle for football's Lombardi Trophy. However, several of the members of their roster were questionable with injuries heading into today's big game.
According to a report on Feb. 2 from SB Nation, there's good news for the 49ers as their pass rusher Aldon Smith is expected to play despite nursing a shoulder injury recently. Also expected to play is defensive end Justin Smith, who has an elbow/triceps injury. Other guys who recently had reported inures were running back Frank Gore with a shoulder and ankle injury, and LaMichael James with a finger injury. They're both expected to be out on the field for their team against the Ravens.
Tarrell Brown, Clark Haggans, Bruce Miller and Mike Iupati all had reported shoulder injuries, but all will participate in today's edition of the Super Bowl from New Orleans. In fact, all of the listed injuries for the 49ers on their team site are considered "probable." That's good news for the team who continues to hold the title of "favorite" going into the matchup against the Ravens. The 49ers are favored to win by 3.5 points in Super Bowl 2013.
The 47th edition of the Super Bowl will be shown on television via CBS on local affiliate station WDBJ 7 starting at 6 p.m. EST.
