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.
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.
The organization that partnered with the San Francisco 49ers to create a widely touted anti-bullying video in support of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth, pulled the video Thursday night after two players who appeared in it publicly denied their involvement.
San Francisco 49ers linebackers Ahmad Brooks and Aldon Smith were limited participants in the team’s first full Super Bowl practice in New Orleans because of shoulder injuries.
Ahmad Brooks has paid his dues to make it to the NFL. Part of it was his own doing, but his path to get to the professional level as been difficult and unique. However, with football in his blood, he has worked hard to earn a spot with the San Francisco 49ers.
The San Francisco 49ers have wrapped up the first half of their season, and they are right where they want to be. Much of their status is due to the elevation in play of both Michael Crabtree and Ahmad Brooks. The team also has Brandon Jacobs and Mario Manningham still ready to make their presence felt.
The Monday Night Game could be a hard fought game coming down to execution and which team makes the first big play, or can turn into a blowout. The Cardinals will hope that thier defense can keep them close enough for Larry Fitzgerald to make an impact, while the 49ers look to continue their winning ways and take control of the division.
The San Francisco 49ers do not have the luxury of easing into the 2012 season. First up on the schedule is the Green Bay Packers, a team with multiple Pro Bowlers on both sides of the ball, yet it’s their offense that steals the show.
The 49ers have signed linebacker Ahmad Brooks to a six-year contract worth $44.5 million. John Madden told the KCBS morning crew now is the time you’ll see NFL teams signing key players as they deal with salary cap limitations.
Ahmad Brooks always wanted to stay in the Bay Area, a place that has become a new home after all those painful memories of getting cut by Cincinnati four years ago, and the San Francisco 49ers sure made it hard for him to leave.
