Rank Among Leaders
|49ers reduced Justin Smith's snaps |
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
(1/29/14) 49ers defensive tackle Justin Smith played 73.3 percent of the team's defensive snaps, a big drop from previous years, reports CSNBayArea.com. San Francisco's depth on the defensive line, including Tony Jerod-Eddie and Demarcus Dobbs, enabled coaches to give the 34-year-old Smith more rest.
Smith still was highly productive, getting 49 tackles, 6.5 sacks and a forced fumble. He's signed through 2015.

|49ers defense in good shape for championship game |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(1/17/14) The 49ers defense should be at something close to full strength for the NFC Championship game against the Seahawks Sunday, as only two players are considered to be in doubt base on the injury report. Defensive lineman Will Tukuafu (knee) and defensive back Carlos Rogers (hamstring) are both questionable for Sunday's game after being limited at times during the week in practice.
The remainder of the team's injury report is made up of players who are expected to play through their maladies. Defensive linemen Justin Smith (shoulder) and Demarcus Dobbs (knee, shoulder), linebackers NaVorro Bowman (wrist), Dan Skuta (foot) and Ahmad Brooks (illness) are all probable for the game.
|Five 49ers on injury report ready to play |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(1/12/14) Five 49ers listed on the team's injury are ready to go against Carolina.
Linebacker Dan Skuta was questionable due to a foot injury, but will play. NaVorro Bowman will play through a wrist issue. Defensive tackle Demarcus Dobbs was probable despite knee and shoulder issues. Center Jonathan Goodwin will also play, though he wasn't dealing with an injury. Defensive tackle Justin Smith will play through a shoulder injury.
|Niners in good shape for playoff battle |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(1/10/14) The 49ers are quite healthy heading into their playoff clash Sunday at Carolina. Only cornerback Carlos Rogers (hamstring) and linebacker Dan Skuta (foot), who are listed as questionable, are threatened with inactivity.
The probables are linebacker NaVorro Bowman (wrist), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (wrist), defensive tackles Justin Smith (shoulder) and Demarcus Dobbs (knee, shoulder) and running back Frank Gore (knee).
|Justin Smith is a solid No. 2 defensive lineman in IDP leagues, and he should fully recover from last year's torn triceps muscle. In 2012, Smith had a down year with just 66 tackles (47 solo) and three sacks. He missed two games with the triceps injury in December, but he returned for the playoffs. He's never had double digits in sacks in his 10-year career, but he's had at least seven six times, including two of the past three years. Plan on drafting Smith with a late-round pick in all leagues. (Updated 4/25/13) |
