Anquan Boldin, BAL—Boldin left Sunday’s win over the Giants in the third quarter with what coach Jim Harbaugh noted as a "shoulder bruise." He has been limited in practice and listed as questionable for this week’s game at Cincinnati.
Given that Baltimore and Cincy can’t really improve their playoff positioning, there’s no point to risking further injury in a somewhat meaningless game.
Randall Cobb, GB—Cobb was listed as questionable on the latest injury report because of an ankle injury suffered on a third-quarter punt return against Tennessee on Sunday.
He took some limited reps in practice, but it will not be known if he’ll play for sure until Sunday. If Cobb is unable to go, his presence will be missed, especially on special teams.
Roddy White, ATL—White has been limited in recent weeks because of injury yet has still performed well—153 yards and two TDs in Week 16. With nothing to play for in Atlanta, White could see limited game action Sunday.
He will likely not be held out completely as coach Mike Smith wants to keep his players game-ready, given their recent playoff misfires, but don’t expect a full game out of him or the other key starters for that matter.
Mario Manningham, SF—Unfortunately for the 49ers, Manningham suffered a torn ACL in Sunday night’s prime-time blowout by the Seahawks. Manningham was placed on injured reserve and will not be available for the postseason.
