Fullback Will Tukuafu and cornerback Carlos Rogers continued to practice on a limited basis for the second day in a row, per David Fucillo of SB Nation. 

At this point, both seem in line to play Sunday in the NFC Championship game. Tukuafu is the more questionable of the two, as he only did individual work during the team practice. Also, after the nasty look of the knee injury Tukuafu suffered against the Panthers Sunday, it would be huge if he can go Sunday, considering how key the 49ers fullback position is in their blocking scheme.

Also for the 49ers, Pro Bowl linebacker Ahmad Brooks was spotted at the team walk-through Thursday morning after missing practice Wednesday with a head cold, reports ESPN 49ers blogger Bill Williamson. Brooks said he feels “all right” and he should be able to play Sunday barring a major setback. He’s been huge for San Francisco thus far in the playoffs, with 4.5 sacks in their two wins.

Other 49ers not at practice Wednesday were DT Justin Smith (shoulder), C Jonathan Goodwin (foot), and DE Demarcus Dobbs (shoulder, knee). We will know more once the official report is released later today, but as it is now, it appears that every 49ers was available to practice at least on a limited basis, according to Sacramento Bee 49ers writer Matt Barrows.
