49ers CBs Rogers, Wright questionable vs. Packers

The SportsXchange

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers and his backup, Eric Wright, are listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Green Bay.

But coach Jim Harbaugh didn't sound concerned Friday about the status of his top cover man, Rogers, or Wright being able to answer the bell at icy Lambeau Field on Sunday afternoon.

"Both are listed as questionable," Harbaugh said, which by technical interpretation on the NFL injury report gives the player a 50-50 chance of playing on game day.

Wright was a late addition to the report, but Harbaugh said he was on the practice field Friday and shrugged off the severity of the injury.

"I wouldn't even call it (a strain)," said Harbaugh. "He's back practicing today."

Rogers is the team's No. 1 cornerback. He plays a physical brand of bump coverage and gets the assignment of covering 6-foot-5 Jordy Nelson, who topped the Packers with 85 receptions for 1,314 yards (15.5 yards per catch) and eight touchdowns.

In the Week 1 loss at San Francisco, Nelson had seven receptions for 130 yards and one touchdown.
