Oakland and New York take the field Sunday with a lot of injury questions and concerns, as both teams fight to keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
Oakland’s roster is pretty healthy right now, which is good news as the Raiders host the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday and try to get back to .500 on the 2013 season.
San Francisco enters this week’s game healthy. They had 7 players limited in practice Thursday, but not a single one will really be hampered by it during the game. Jacksonville on the other hand will be affected on both sides of the ball by various injured starters.
The Oakland Raiders are looking to stop the Pittsburgh Steelers from getting to a three-game winning streak, but there’s a bit of an obstacle in the way. That obstacle happens to be the injury bug and it has bitten the silver and black hard.
While no 49er has been ruled out yet, both the 49ers and Titans appear as though they will be without at least one of their key run stoppers. Other defensive players have also been limited in practice, and as a result, both teams should look to rush the ball early and often.
Considering its week 6, both the 49ers and Cardinals have to be content with their injury situations. With an unimpressive injury report on each side, neither team could ask for more. With their bye still a few weeks off, San Francisco hopes to remain healthy after this important division game.
The names on the injury report for the Texans and 49ers game this Sunday Night, is more enough to field a team. Out of the two, it’s Houston who is worse off, while San Francisco has only minor concerns. If the 49ers employ a physical game plan, then injuries will play a part in this contest, as Houston simply can’t withstand much more of a beating.
While it’s hard to tell, the 49ers are slowly getting healthier. The long list of names on their injured report remains, but nothing to be alarmed about for the time being. St. Louis on the other hand is as healthy as can be heading into this pivotal game to stay out of the NFC West cellar.
At first glance it seems that the Packers and 49ers will both be at full strength for the match up Sunday. However, San Francisco will be without several players and will need to hold the fort until they get back their full roster.
The Raiders lost a lot of men to injury during training camp, but one man’s absence in particular may cost them the game against the Colts.
With one more game on the schedule, the Ravens and 49ers come into Super Bowl 47 as healthy as they could hope to be. There are a lot of names on the injury report, but none to really be concerned about, as they have all played the previous game with the same problem.
With a two week break between the Divisional Championship Round and the Super Bowl, both the 49ers and Ravens are able to heal up. Both teams have defensive stars recovering from an injury, and with an extra week to rest will only benefit, but San Francisco would have been better off playing this Sunday.
