San Francisco 49ers linebackers Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks were the only two players limited at the team’s first full Super Bowl practice, according to Cam Inman of The Mercury News.
Ahmad Brooks and Aldon Smith, the 49ers’ starting outside linebackers, were the only players limited Wednesday in the team’s first Super Bowl practice at the New Orleans Saints’ facility in Metairie.
Smith and Brooks are both dealing with left shoulder injuries. Still, both linebackers are expected to suit up this weekend against the Baltimore Ravens.
Brooks is battling a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, while Smith has been hampered by his shoulder injury for the last couple of months.
The 49ers listed 10 other players on their injury report. All practice fully despite their injuries, including linebackers NaVorro Bowman (shoulder), Patrick Willis (shoulder) and Clark Haggans (shoulder); cornerback Tarell Brown (shoulder); tight end Garrett Celek (foot); running backs Frank Gore (shoulder, ankle), LaMichael James (finger) and Bruce Miller (shoulder); defensive tackle Justin Smith (elbow, triceps) and left guard Mike Iupati (shoulder).
