49ers LBs Brooks, Smith Will Be Probable
NEW ORLEANS (CBS Sports) — For the third straight day, San Francisco linebackers Ahmad Brooks (shoulder) and Aldon Smith (shoulder) were both limited participants in practice. However, that shouldn’t affect their availability for the Super Bowl as both have been listed as probable for the game.
On the Ravens side, linebacker Ray Lewis participated in what could be his final NFL practice ever, “I didn’t even think of it,” Baltimore coach John Harbaugh told AFC pool reporter Peter King after the Ravens practice. “That’s not where Ray’s head is either, I’m sure. He’s thinking about the game. We all are.”
All 53 players on the Ravens roster were full participants in practice on Friday.
Here’s the injury status for each team heading into Super Bowl XLVII:
