Carlos Rogers Inactive for 49ers-Panthers Matchup

The 49ers will play Sunday without one of their starting cornerbacks, while the Panthers have at their disposal one of their starting wide receivers.

San Francisco's Carlos Rogers was deemed inactive, while Carolina's Steve Smith was slated to play when the team's final rosters were revealed 90 minutes prior to kickoff of their NFC Divisional playoff game in Charlotte.

Rogers (hamstring), who also missed the NFC Wild Card postseason opener, did not practice this week. Like Rogers, Smith (knee) was listed as questionable.

Cornerbacks Tarell Brown, Tramaine Brock, Perrish Cox and perhaps Eric Wright will have to pick up the slack in the 49ers secondary.

CB Carlos Rogers

TE Derek Carrier

LB Nick Moody

LG Ryan Seymour

DT Quinton Dial

LG Joe Looney

WR Jon Baldwin

Carolina announced the following inactive players:
