Thirteen 49ers -- including Justin Smith -- listed as 'probable'


Thirteen 49ers are on the team's injury report as 'probable' for Saturday's game, including defensive lineman Justin Smith and his tender triceps. Smith was a limited participant in all three full practices this week and is expected to start Saturday at right defensive end.

The other nicked but ready-to-roll 49ers: LB Navorro Bowman (shoulder), CB Tarell Brown (shoulder), TE Garrett Celek (foot), S Dashon Goldson (shoulder), LB Tavares Gooden (ribs), LB Clark Haggans (shoulder), G Mike Iupati (shoulder), RB Bruce Miller (shoulder), CB Carlos Rogers (knee), LB Aldon Smith (shoulder), DT Will Tukuafu (neck) and LB Patrick Willis (shoulder)

Tukuafu's injury could mean that Ian Williams is active against the Packers. The conditions of both Tukuafu, who left the Week 16 game against Seattle, and Justin Smith are still fuzzy, and the 49ers may need as many healthy bodies as possible along the defensive line.

For the Packers, receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson, both of whom missed a practice earlier this week, practiced in full on Friday.

WR Jarrett Boykin (ankle), DE Jerel Worthy (knee)

WR Randall Cobb (illness), TE Jermichael Finley (hamstring), RB Alex Green (knee), LB Clay Matthews (knee), LB Dezman Moses (hamstring), WR Jordy Nelson (ankle), RB James Starks (knee)
