Carlos Rogers missed this entire week’s practice. Rogers is still battling a hamstring injury he sustained in the 49ers regular-season finale against Arizona. Rogers was on the practice field on Friday working with coaches but will be listed as questionable for Sunday. Tarell Brown and Perrish Cox will fill in for Rogers if he cannot go on Sunday.
49ers offensive coordinator, Greg Roman, is one of the names mentioned in Minnesota’s search for their next head coach. Roman received interest from the Vikings, but has not been officially named as a potential candidate. Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer and Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles are likely the other two finalists for Minnesota’s head coaching vacancy.
There has been a lot of media buzz surrounding Ric Flair’s motivational speech to the 49ers before last week’s game in Green Bay. Flair has strong ties to Charlotte, N.C., and has already made it publicly known that he will not be attending the 49ers-Panthers game on Sunday. Flair has been the target of death threats for his public support of the 49ers. In addition, Flair has an outstanding warrant in Mecklenburg County, N.C. for failing to pay over $30,000 in support payments and court fees.
