USA TODAY Sports

The 49ers are relatively injury-free heading into the big Super Bowl showdown next Sunday.

The San Francisco 49ers head into Super Bowl week relatively unscathed from injuries, though there's still a handful of nicked-up players to watch for.

Tight end Garrett Celek (foot) is listed as questionable after sitting out all three days of practice, but he's not expected to miss the game. Linebacker Ahmad Brooks (shoulder, finger) is listed as probable. Brooks was mostly limited to exercise bike duty, but he got in a limited practice Friday and should be fine for the game. Likewise, running back Frank Gore (ankle, shoulder) is also expected to suit up and defensive tackle Justin Smith seems to be over his elbow injury that cost him a game in the regular season.

Here's the 49ers' full injury report, courtesy of Niners Nation:

Questionable: TE Garrett Celek (foot)

Probable: LB Navorro Bowman (shoulder), LB Ahmad Brooks (shoulder), CB Tarell Brown (shoulder), RB Frank Gore (ankle, shoulder), LB Clark Haggans (shoulder), G Mike Iupati (shoulder), RB LaMichael James (back), RB Bruce Miller (shoulder), LB Aldon Smith (shoulder), DT Justin Smith (elbow, triceps), LB Patrick Willis (shoulder)
