SANTA CLARA -- With a hamstring injury making his status tenuous for Sunday's playoff opener, 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers stretched in sweats on a side field with a strength coach Thursday while practice began without him for a second straight day.
"The injury is not as bad as it was feared," defensive coordinator Vic Fangio said before Thursday's practice.
The 49ers will issue a participation report at the end of practice, typically before 5 p.m. Rogers did not practice Wednesday and his status for Sunday's wild-card game at Green Bay is "to be determined," Fangio added.
Rogers hurt his right hamstring pursuing Larry Fitzgerald on a reception in the final minute of Sunday's win at Arizona.
Since joining the 49ers in 2011, Rogers has started every game at left cornerback, while also moving into the slot on multiple-receiver sets. If Rogers can't play, Tarell Brown likely would start in his place, although Eric Wright and Perrish Cox also are expected to see time.
