Only two players from either Super Bowl team were limited in practice on Wednesday, both from the 49ers. San Francisco starting outside linebackers Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks were limited with shoulder injuries; no Ravens were kept from a full practice.
Brooks is battling a sprained AC joint he suffered in the NFC Championship Game and Smith has been fighting through shoulder pain for much of the season. Brooks missed practice last week due to his shoulder injury, but was able to return on Wednesday. Both linebackers are expected to play on Sunday
Ten other 49ers were listed on the injury report, but were full participants in practice on Wednesday. Linebackers NaVorro Bowman, Clark Haggans and Patrick Willis were all listed with shoulder injuries as well, but nothing that limited them at practice.
The rest of the 49ers injury report included cornerback Tarell Brown (shoulder), tight end Garrett Celek (foot), running backs Frank Gore (shoulder, ankle) and LaMichael James (finger), guard Mike Iupati (shoulder), fullback Bruce Miller (shoulder), and defensive tackle Justin Smith (elbow, triceps). Fourteen Ravens were listed on the injury report as full participants.
