A day removed from the the biggest game of their careers, nothing short of a broken leg would keep a Baltimore Raven or San Francisco 49er off the sidelines of the Mercedes Benz Superdome Sunday.
San Francisco defensive tackle Justin Smith fully participated in Friday's final practice, despite the triceps injury that has plagued him throughout the postseason.
Friday was the last full practice for both teams, with light walk throughs scheduled for Saturday.
Only two 49ers were limited in practice, while every Raven was fully active. Every player is listed as probable.
San Francisco’s linebackers continue to dominate the injury report. NFL sack leader Aldon Smith was limited all week with a shoulder injury. Since Week 12 Smith has dealt with the injury, and he hasn’t recorded a sack since Week 15.
49er defensive tackle Justin Smith has said his triceps injury may require off-season surgery, and that he hasn't been at 100 percent throughout the postseason. Both Smiths have been an integral part of the San Francisco pass rush, and how they perform could be a huge factor Sunday.
The Ravens have spread their injuries around to both sides of the ball, but there were no new notable names to mention. It was the final practice of linebacker Ray Lewis' 17-year career, and perhaps the last of safety Ed Reed's time with Baltimore.
