Rogers has missed the past two games with a right hamstring injury, but the team is hopeful he can suit up on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawaks in the NFC Championship Game.
“We’re hoping that he can get 100 percent healthy,” 49ers defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said. “And then we’ll see exactly what his role will be at that point.”
Fellow cornerbacks Tarell Brown, Tramaine Brock and Perrish Cox have all played well in Rogers’ absence.
Harvin still not cleared: Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin did not practice Thursday and is still going through concussion testing and has not been cleared for Sunday’s NFC Championship Game. Seattle coach Pete Carroll said the only deadline for Harvin is the one determined by doctors who must clear Harvin for him to be able to play against San Francisco.
Brooks back: Niners linebacker Ahmad Brooks returned to practice Thursday after missing the previous day because he was sick.
“[He’s} feeling better today,” Niners coach Jim Harbaugh said. “Had a little bug.”
Brooks had 8½ sacks in the regular season and had 4½ sacks combined in San Francisco’s two prior playoff games.
