49ers Vs. Saints, 2012 NFL Playoffs Injury Report: Chris Culliver Questionable With Illness

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing to host the New Orleans Saints on Saturday in the second round of the 2012 NFL playoffs.

Although the final injury report before Saturday's game came out early in the afternoon on Friday, Kevin Lynch of the SF Gate had an interesting take on rookie cornerback Chris Culliver missing Friday's practice for the 49ers.

Rookie Culliver is the most concerning, after participating in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, Culliver did not take part in Friday's walk through. That might be due to his illness. The 49ers need all the cornerbacks possible for Saturday's game against the pass-happy Saints.

It is true that the secondary will need to be operating at as close to full strength as possible with the potent air attack of New Orleans. It will be worth keeping an eye on whether Culliver ends up on the inactives list before kickoff on Saturday.
