49ers injury report for Super Bowl 2013: Aldon Smith, Ahmad Brooks ready for Sunday

USA TODAY Sports

Despite being limited in practice leading up to Super Bowl XLVII, San Francisco linebackers Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks will be ready to go on Sunday in New Orleans.

The big day is finally here. Sunday evening in New Orleans, the San Francisco 49ers will take on the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII, and despite some minor issues the 49ers expect to have their full complement of players ready to take the field at Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

All four of the 49ers starting linebackers are listed on the injury report, with Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks both limited this week in practice due to shoulder injuries. Both, however, will play on Sunday. NaVorro Bowman and Patrick Willis, listed as "probable" for the big game, practiced fully for San Francisco this week.
